Community College of Philadelphia is the largest institution of higher education in Philadelphia, offering more than 70 degree and certificate programs in Business, Humanities, Allied Health, Liberal Arts, Science and Technology, and the Social and Behavioral Sciences. Since 1965, nearly 600,000 individuals have passed through our doors seeking associate's degrees, certificates, improved career skills and lifelong learning enrichment. More than three-quarters of our graduates transfer to four-year colleges and universities while others seek employment in the Philadelphia region. More than 90 percent of our graduates remain in the area and seek employment, strengthening our local economy and workforce. Local businesses look to us to provide workforce training to keep their employees skilled and their companies competitive.
Many of our students have jobs and families, making it a challenge to add education to an already demanding schedule, and we offer the flexibility to accommodate every type of learner. Classes are held during the day, in the evening and on Saturdays at the Main Campus, our three Regional Centers and at neighborhood sites throughout the city. Online and hybrid classes and degree programs are also available.
