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.
