The first step towards enrolling at the Community College of Philadelphia is to complete an admissions application online. Acceptance into the college is guaranteed, and within three to five business days a confirmation email ensures receipt of the application and provides a student identification number.
The next step is to apply for financial aid. Applicants can begin this process by visiting the website for the U.S. Department of Education and filing the Free Application for Federal Student Aid. Community College of Philadelphia offers occasional workshops for assistance with the financial aid form.
Create a MyCCP account to check important information, such as the status of the financial aid application. This account also provides access to registration information and a college-assigned email account. Details for setting up the MyCCP account are on the CCP.edu website.
Prospective students also need to determine placement levels in writing, reading and math in order to register for courses at an appropriate level. Depending on results of placement tests, students may immediately register for college level courses or may need to first take developmental classes.
The last step in this process is registering for classes through the MyCCP account. Set up an appointment with a counselor to discuss the desired area of study and create a class schedule accordingly.
