Students don’t need to take a break from earning credits over winter break. Community College of Philadelphia will offer affordable online courses during the 2015 winter break to help 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 2015 to qualify for the Winter term, which runs from December 21 through January 15. Course offerings include: Addiction Studies, Introduction to Disability Studies,  United States History: The 20th Century, Critical Thinking, American Government, 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 course.

Register online at Continuing students (meaning that Fall 2015 or Winter 2016 cannot be your first term in a degree or certificate program at Community College of Philadelphia) can register online at MyCCP. The last day to register in person is Friday, Dec. 18. Sunday, Dec. 20 is the deadline for online registration. Register today—classes are filling quickly. If a class is currently full, spaces may become available, so be sure to check back often.

Guest students must complete the admissions application for Spring 2016 by December 9, 2015. Once your application is complete, your next step is to complete this form. After you apply and complete the form, you will receive an email from the College with instructions for registering for the Winter term.

Tuition for Philadelphia residents is $153 per credit hour.

Community College of Philadelphia enrolls more than 31,000 credit and non-credit students. The College offers day, evening and weekend classes, as well as classes online. Visit us at Follow us on Twitter and like us on Facebook.
