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, and to keep Main Campus and its Regional Centers closed through at least May 6, 2020. 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.

Our academic and student support services are still here to support you! Visit the College’s Virtual Student Resource Center to access the assistance that you need.

You may join the International Student Organization, which plans day trips and other activities around the College. To celebrate diversity, an annual International Festival exposes the College community to other cultures. Film festivals and events featuring specific nationalities also take place throughout the year.
