Due to City of Philadelphia mandates, anyone who comes to the College who is not fully vaccinated will be tested before they will be permitted on campus. Masks are required. Starting Oct. 15, all faculty, staff and students must be fully vaccinated. Please see our College COVID-19 Updates for more information.

The City of Philadelphia has recently updated its vaccine mandate for higher education students, faculty and staff. Under the updated mandate, all students, faculty and staff must have their first shot of an approved COVID-19 vaccine by Oct. 15, 2021, and their second shot (if Pfizer or Moderna) by Nov. 15, 2021.

Individuals will be subject to regular testing until they are fully vaccinated (two weeks after their final shot), including those with approved exemptions. This means that employees, students and volunteers who have not submitted proof of their first shot (for Pfizer and Moderna) by Oct. 15, 2021, or do not have an approved exemption, will not be permitted on campus at that time.

On Tuesday, Sept. 7, Senator Casey joined Dr. Generals and members of the College community to tour the Career and Advanced Technology Center (CATC), opening in 2022. The CATC will bring career training and community building to the forefront of our neighborhoods through state-of-the-art facilities, support for local entrepreneurship, and hands-on learning experiences for fields that are in demand.

Full- and part-time students who become fully vaccinated between Aug. 19, 2021 and Oct. 1, 2021, and who upload their vaccination cards to the College’s secure site, are eligible to receive a $250 Bookstore credit. Vouchers will be issued 10 days following the start of the 15-week/10-week semesters, and can be used in-person or online.

There is no restriction on what the voucher can be used on in the Bookstore, and the voucher does not carry cash value (i.e., students will not receive a refund check for unused funds). The voucher must be used at the Bookstore prior to the end of the Spring 2022 semester.

FAQs

Can you review/check my status to receive the credit?

Pumpkin spice flavors are rolling out, so that means the beginning of your fall semester at Community College of Philadelphia is right around the corner! Classes officially start on Tuesday, Sept. 7, and there are a few things to remember:
  1. You should follow your Tuesday class schedule; and
  2. The majority of classes are still (temporarily) virtual.

As we continue to keep your health and safety in mind, we recently announced that we won’t get to see many of you in person until Oct. 18, when courses will be offered in their original format (hybrid or in person), as listed on your class schedule. If you registered for online classes, there are no changes to your schedule.
