COVID-19 Campus Update

As public health concerns surrounding COVID-19 continue to grow, Community College of Philadelphia has made the careful decision to move coursework to online or other remote alternatives, beginning March 30 through the end of the spring semester, and to keep Main Campus and its Regional Centers closed through at least May 6, 2020. All courses remain suspended through March 30, 2020. Students will receive details on coursework from individual instructors. Faculty and staff will be issued guidance by supervisors. At this time, the commencement ceremony for spring 2020 is postponed. The College will continue to update you via email, web updates and text alerts as this situation evolves during the closure. During this time, please follow all CDC guidelines for preventing the spread of this virus and remaining healthy, including hygiene recommendations, social distancing practices and remaining home when you are sick.

Message from the Vice President for Academic and Student Success

Welcome to the spring semester!

In order to have important information available in one area, we have developed an easy access website. Information you will find at the division’s website addresses topics such as grades, exams and technology training; emergencies and fire drills; links to documents such as the Student Handbook, Enrollment Guide and service hours for various student services; as well as information regarding Starfish Connect, our academic early alert system. Please note that the website also contains information pertaining to the College’s continued work on Guided Pathways. Please review this site throughout the semester, as we will update regularly with additional information.

The contributions of all faculty, staff, and administrators are integral to the work we do at the College. I look forward to a productive semester ahead as we work collaboratively toward our commitment and focus on academic excellence and student success.

Thank you and best wishes for a rewarding spring semester!

Dr. Samuel Hirsch
Vice President for Academic and Student Success

In Fall 2017, Community College of Philadelphia embarked on the planning process for the NEW Library and Learning Commons. Established by College leadership and the primary stakeholders, the vision for the space is a welcoming educational environment celebrating the diversity of age, cultures and points of view of the College community. The space will have clear wayfinding while taking advantage of great natural light. There will be places for quiet study and for collaboration while securing the book collection. An emphasis is on offering an array of group study/classroom spaces, technology and flexibility. Lastly, it is important that the space exude beauty with artwork, finishes and furniture.

The Division of Academic and Student Success is pleased to announce the expansion of its website to include more information on Guided Pathways. As the College continues its progress with implementing Guided Pathways, it is important that information on the work being done is available to faculty, staff, administrators, students, and the community. The link is available at the divisions website and also on the landing page for faculty and staff in MyCCP under All About Guided Pathways:

The Guided Pathways website encompasses all components of the Pathways reform: Academic Pathways and Programs (with links to program course sequence grids); the Intake Process; Academic Advising and Student Success; Developmental Education; and Leveraging Technology. There is also a link to information about the Guided Pathways Core Team and another to numerous resources. 

The support and hard work of the entire College community are necessary to these efforts. Please visit the Guided Pathways website often, as it will be updated with news and developments regarding the continued work of the College to increase student success via the Guided Pathways initiative.
