PHILADELPHIA, November 19, 2014—For the first time, Community College of Philadelphia will offer affordable online courses during the 2014 winter break to help its students and guest students from other colleges and universities accelerate degree completion.
“These three-credit courses will require 6-8 hours of work daily, so students must be committed to dedicating their time to the coursework and be prepared for a fast pace over the course of the four-week term,” said Dr. Samuel Hirsch, vice president for Student Affairs.
To help students achieve the best results possible, winter break enrollment is restricted to one course. Registrants must be in good academic standing as of Spring or Summer 2014 to qualify for the Winter term, which runs from December 15 through January 9. Course offerings include: Addiction Studies, Political Science, Behavioral Health and Human, Cultural Traditions, Environmental Conservation, Global History, Introduction to Sociology, and Juvenile Justice.
The College recommends that students who register for the online course have access to a privately owned personal computer and do not attempt to use a public access computer to take the courses. Register online at www.MyCCP.com or in person at a registration counter on Main Campus or at any of the regional centers. The last day to register in person is Friday, Dec. 12. Sunday, Dec. 14 is the deadline for online registration. Tuition for Philadelphia residents is $153 per credit hour.
Community College of Philadelphia enrolls more than 34,000 credit and non-credit students. The College offers day, evening and weekend classes, as well as classes on the Internet. Visit the College at www.ccp.edu. Follow us on Twitter. Like us on Facebook.
