The vast majority of our students, faculty, staff and visitors do not experience crime at the College. Despite everyone's preventive efforts, unfortunately, crime sometimes occurs. The College strongly encourages the accurate and prompt reporting of all crimes to Security Services.

Peirce students, faculty members, staff or visitors who observe a security incident or problem are encouraged to notify Security Services at ext. 9444 from any on campus phone or 1.888.467.3472, ext. 9444 from off campus. The Philadelphia Police department can also be notified by dialing 911.

To contact Security Services in non-emergency situations, please call ext. 9284 from any telephone located in College Hall or Alumni Hall, or call 1.888.467.3472, ext. 9284 from any non-campus phone.

H1N1 Virus

Peirce College values the health and safety of its faculty, staff and students. In doing so, the College encourages everyone to exercise precaution during this flu season. With national attention on the H1N1 flu, the College has implemented preventative measures to ensure the control of the possible spread of the flu on campus. Hands-free, wall-mounted sanitizer dispensers have been placed in designated areas throughout College and Alumni Halls as well as desktop dispensers located at the Customer Service desk, Admissions front desk, Library circulation desk and service window in Enrollment Services.

The College also wants to inform students who come down with the flu of ways to maintain academic progress.

What to do if you develop symptoms of influenza-like illness?

  • Contact your health provider to report your illness and receive guidance about treatment.
  • Contact your instructor and/or academic advisor to inform them that you are ill and are unable to come to class or participate in course activities.*
  • Stay current with your coursework as best you can. Your instructor can offer support and options for making up missed coursework.
  • If you are unable to participate in your coursework for a prolonged period of time, email Rita Toliver-Roberts, Dean of Students, at rjtoliver@peirce.edu.
  • Remember that you are ultimately responsible for maintaining academic progress in your courses. If you become ill, be proactive.

For flu prevention and treatment information, please consult with your healthcare provider or visit the Center for Disease Control (CDC) website at www.cdc.gov/h1n1flu.

*According to the CDC, individuals considered sick with flu-like symptoms (including fever), should stay home for at least 24 hours after the fever is gone. Your fever should be gone without the use of a fever-reducing medicine.
