An overview of CCP-Northeast

Jeanna Perlman, director at Community College of Philadelphia’s Northeast Regional Center, 12901 Townsend Road, spoke at last week’s East Torresdale Civic Association meeting.

Perlman said enrollment was about 1,250 for the fall semester and is about 1,100 this spring. She said the numbers are lower than the pre-COVID years.

The building is 120,000 square feet, with plenty of free, off-street parking. Students pursue associate’s degrees.

The yearly cost of tuition and fees is $5,368. Perlman said students can earn up to $7,395 a year in Pell grants, and do not have to pay back the difference between the grant and tuition and fees.
