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, beginning March 30 through the end of the spring semester, and to keep Main Campus and its Regional Centers closed through at least May 6, 2020. All courses remain suspended through March 30, 2020. Students will receive details on coursework from individual instructors. Faculty and staff will be issued guidance by supervisors. 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.

Filing Deadlines

Free Application for Federal Student Aid (FAFSA) Deadline

For Community College of Philadelphia, the priority filing deadline is the tax filing date of April 15, or the first business day after April 15. Filing a FAFSA after this date can delay your aid package and disqualify you from certain aid offers for which you may otherwise qualify.

Community College of Philadelphia Deadline

Your financial aid application must be completed at least four weeks before the payment deadline if you plan to use financial aid to hold your classes. Otherwise, please make alternative payment arrangements with the Bursar's Office.

You can register for your classes before your financial aid is completed; however,  your financial aid application must be finalized before the payment deadline. If your financial aid package is not offered by the payment deadline, you must make alternative payment arrangements with the Bursar’s Office or you may be dropped from your classes. It is important to log into your MyCCP portal to confirm that you have no outstanding financial aid requirements before the payment deadline and you have no balance due on your College bill after authorized aid was applied.

All aid for the semester will be canceled if financial aid requirements remain unsatisfied by the last day of the semester.
