    I reached my college just as my classes were about to end.
    (If you must, then "get over" but not "over.")
    I'm not a teacher, but I write for a living. Please don't ask me about 2nd conditionals, but I'm a safe bet for what reads well in (American) English.

    Neither, in my opinion.

    I reached my college when my class was about over.
    I reached my college when my class was about to end.
