Returning to Learning

If you are a City of Philadelphia employee, here is your opportunity to accomplish your academic goals—for less. Whether you are starting your college career, looking to finish your degree or wanting to pursue another degree, you may be eligible to receive a 25% tuition discount while enrolled in a degree or certificate program at the College through the Returning to Learning Program. After graduating from the College, you may transfer to four-year colleges and universities in the area who are also participating in Returning to Learning.

You must complete an application for admission to the College or be enrolled in the College as a first step.  You must then complete an application to Returning to Learning each semester in order to receive the tuition discount.  This benefit is only available to the City employee and does not extend to their dependents. Since processing generally takes from 7-10 business days, you are advised to submit your application for the discount well in advance of the payment deadline for the semester.
