This report profiles students who enroll at single and multiple campuses/sites of the Community College of Philadelphia (CCP). Single-site (attending classes at one campus) and multiple-site (attending classes at more than one campus) student groups were profiled based on persistence and academic performance indicators and demographic characteristics. Findings include: (1) multiple-site course registration at CCP appears to be a growing phenomenon; (2) regardless of primary location, the graduation rates for students who took courses across locations were greater than the graduation rates for single-site students; (3) the median number of semesters that students enrolled at CCP was greater for multiple-site students than for single-site students; (4) multiple-site students completed a higher proportion of the credits they attempted than did single-site students; (5) multiple-site students who were enrolled at CCP during the fall 1998 term were far more likely to be enrolled at the college during spring 2000 than were single-site students; (6) student groups were similar with regard to the median number of credits they took during the fall 1998 semester; (7) in most cases, multiple-site students earned slightly higher cumulative grade point averages (GPAs) than their single-site counterparts; and (8) with regard to demographic characteristics, female students, black students, and older students were most likely to enroll at multiple sites.
