Main Campus: The testing site on Main Campus will remain open through June 30. Starting May 9, the testing site will change its hours of operation, and will be open from 8 a.m. to 5:30 p.m.
This year the College hosted the first ever ROARchella, an outdoor event to celebrate springtime and our College community’s full-time return to campus.

As the College approaches a new phase of the spring 2022 semester, following are information and updates that will answer questions and offer guidance as we continue to navigate the pandemic.
Return to Campus
Starting Tuesday, Feb. 15, courses will be offered in their original format, hybrid or in person. Please use this guide to see if you will need to come to campus for your classes, or if your class will remain online.
The following details and procedures outline our efforts in making the College a safe environment for all:
The College has revised its COVID-19 testing procedures for individuals who are required to come to campus for work or to attend classes. Since Jan. 10, all individuals on campus, regardless of vaccination status, have been required to be tested every 3 days in order to access College buildings.
Beginning Monday, Jan. 24:
- Individuals with approved exemptions will still need to be tested on campus for COVID-19 every 3 days as required by the City of Philadelphia mandate.
- Vaccinated individuals, whether they have received their booster dose or not, will need to be tested on campus every 7 days.
These testing requirements are in effect through Feb. 14, 2022.
Please help us make the testing process more efficient:
Continued increases in COVID-19 cases throughout the city and the region have resulted in additional changes to the College’s spring 2022 semester.
Community College of Philadelphia will continue to operate on a fully remote schedule through Monday, Feb. 14. This means that, with the exception of essential employees, all staff and calendar-year faculty will be expected to work remotely from now through Feb. 14. Essential employees will be notified about their schedules by their supervisors.
Beginning Tuesday, Feb. 15, we expect staff and calendar-year faculty will be able to return to campus while maintaining their fall semester 2021 schedules at approximately 50 percent capacity unless otherwise directed by their supervisor.
Due to rising Covid cases in Philadelphia and throughout the region, Community College of Philadelphia will operate on a fully remote schedule through January 16. With the exception of essential employees, all staff and calendar-year faculty will be expected to work remotely between January 4 and January 16. Beginning January 18, we expect staff and calendar-year faculty will be able to return to campus while maintaining their fall semester 2021 schedules.
Essential staff will be notified by their supervisors regarding their on-campus schedules. The campus will remain open to staff who need to retrieve necessary items and devices to continue remote work. All student services will remain available remotely throughout the remote work period.
College leadership continues to monitor Covid developments in the city very closely. Any additional updates will be shared by email and online.
