COVID-19 Campus Update

The College is currently closed, and remote instruction and work continue while Philadelphia remains under a stay-at-home order. All courses for the Summer I and II terms will be held online while student services and support are available remotely. Visit the College’s Virtual Student Resource Center to access the assistance that you need. Adequate notice will be shared with students, staff and faculty once a re-opening date is established. 


As an older student, and having a family, and paying for lots of different tuitions, it’s nice to have a school that isn’t a four year college tuition. And also I didn’t really want the time commitment of a longer duration to already having an undergrad. So that’s what really brought me to Community College [of Philadelphia]. My [dental] hygienist actually graduated from this program maybe 12 years ago so she brought this to my attention and said it was a really good program!

I was pretty shocked going into the program. I certainly did not have a huge understanding of what I was getting into. But as I get more and more into it, it’s more interesting, and it’s definitely really challenging. It’s not a program for someone who doesn’t want to work super, super, super hard. I would say, it’s a lot more challenging than my undergrad! And it’s challenging in a lot of different ways. A lot of time management, a lot of maturity. You have to have social grace.
