The Bursar’s Office is responsible for the billing and collection of payment for tuition and fees. We provide electronic statements, offer tuition payment plans, process refunds and produce 1098T tax notifications.
Tuition and Fees
Tuition rates vary based on residency:
- Philadelphia residents pay $159 per credit hour
- Other Pennsylvanians pay $318 per credit hour plus a $10 nonresident capital fee per credit
- Non-Pennsylvanians pay $477 per credit hour plus a $20 nonresident capital fee per credit
Some courses have additional fees; check the individual course descriptions for this information.
- Pay online with a Credit/Debit Card or E-check. You must be logged into MyCCP to pay your bill online. Login to MyCCP, select the Student tab, then choose from the options under the Financial Services channel to pay your bill or enroll in a payment plan.
- Pay in person by Check, Money Order, Cash, or Credit/Debit Card.
Check and money order payments should be made payable to Community College of Philadelphia and can be mailed to or dropped off in-person at:
Community College of Philadelphia
1700 Spring Garden Street, BG-38
Philadelphia, PA 19130
Cash payments are accepted in person at the Main Campus Bursar’s Office, Room BG-38.
Please note: There is no fee to pay by E-check. Credit and debit card transactions will be assessed a convenience fee. Effective August 25, 2017 the convenience fee is 2.75% of your payment (4.25% for international payments).
Consider enrolling in the payment plan to break up your tuition payments. The plan is available for Fall, Spring and Summer terms. To take full advantage of the plan and maximize the plan's potential to spread payments over time, begin paying in July for the fall semester, November for the spring semester and April for the summer semester. The cost to enroll is a non-refundable $35 fee together with the first installment payment. The plan now offers the option to enroll in automatic payments.
To enroll in the Tuition Payment Plan, please login to MyCCP and click on the Enroll in a Payment Plan link under the Financial Services channel to complete the online enrollment process and submit your payment electronically.
Please note that only tuition and fees may be considered; books and the enrollment fee cannot be included in the Payment Plan. Financial Aid and Company billing will be included when calculating the payment schedule.
If you withdraw or add a course, your payment plan will be adjusted accordingly. It is your responsibility to check your MyCCP account for any changes to your payment plan. Please note that if your financial aid is not approved, you are still responsible for the payments.
