A Message from the Vice President of Enrollment Management & Marketing
Spring Term Updates
Thank you for choosing Central Penn College (CPC) as the institution to pursue your education. Our faculty and staff are looking forward to having you begin your educational journey with us this spring.
These are challenging times. And while the coronavirus disease 2019 (COVID-19) has impacted normal, everyday life, we know that the Central Penn community is a strong, resilient community. Our students have already overcome many challenges to get where they are, and we as a community will pull together to overcome the challenges that lie ahead.
As always, our top priority is the safety and well-being of our students, faculty, staff and the greater campus community. Central Penn College’s leadership team is closely monitoring the latest information related to COVID-19.
Beginning March 16, the college moved all classes and exams to an online format to finish our winter term. In addition, all residential housing was closed on Wednesday, March 18, for cleaning during the break between winter and spring terms.
Residential Students & Students Taking Day Classes:
As of now, the move in date for new residential students for the spring term is still scheduled for Sunday April 5th. Orientation for all students taking daytime classes is scheduled for Monday, April 6th. Please note, if there are any changes regarding residential housing, orientation or in-person classes, you will be notified by your admissions counselor immediately, followed up with an email from the office of enrollment management detailing next steps.
Students Taking Evening or Online Classes:
To help prepare you for the start of the term, please review the New Student Orientation videos before classes start on Monday, April 6. These videos will review helpful information regarding available resources and services at Central Penn. We recommend you review the videos before Wednesday, April 3, so there is plenty of time to have your questions answered prior to the first day of class. Please click on this link to view the videos, which will last approximately 60 minutes.

For students who are scheduled to take on ground day or evening courses beginning the Week of April 6th, those courses are still scheduled to start face to face as planned. In the event the college adjusts planned course delivery formats, you will be notified immediately by your admissions counselor, followed up with an email from the office of enrollment management detailing next steps.
I also encourage you to visit www.centralpenn.edu/covid, for the latest Central Penn College information on COVID-19.
Even though the campus is currently closed, the college is OPEN. We are operating virtually, and our team is available to assist you in any way possible. Please reach out to your admissions counselor if you have any questions.
The entire team at Central Penn College is looking forward to you joining the CPC family.
With warm regards,
