I love this school! Its close to where I live. They have a parking garage for students. The professors are very nice and helpful. They have learning labs where you can walk in and get tutored in whatever subject you need help in. They have counselors that are patient and there to listen to your concerns. The financial aid line is long, but its worth waiting in that line. They have a cafeteria with healthy and non healthy options to choose from.
Review Community College of Philadelphia
So far, I have had a positive experience with this college. As an incoming freshmen, I have noticed that the enrollment process was very simple and fast. Every time I had a question about the admission process or any other inquiries, they were very nice and professional when wandering them. The tuition is very cheap compared to the surrounding colleges as well. The only complaint I would have is that it is sometimes very hard to get in contact with the financial aid office over the phone. You would have to go to the campus directly
When anyone makes mention of ccp, the first few words that come to my mind are "great investment" and "highly supportive". The faculty there are very understanding of students' different backgrounds and try their best to foster an environment that is highly conducive to their success. CCP freely offers many services to help students succeed whether it be free tutoring, counseling, or even free food to help students in need.
