Central Piedmont is committed to delivering high-quality educational experiences to our students. Part of that commitment means ensuring you’re prepared for what to expect in your courses, which puts you in a better position for success. A new example of that is the Online Learning Introduction. The Online Learning “Intro” is a 100% online, on-demand orientation designed to prepare you for the unique demands of online learning.
For students who are new to Central Piedmont’s online learning – or have not successfully completed an online class here at the college within the last three years – the Online Learning Intro must be completed before you can register for online classes. Here’s what to know:
- Thinking of taking Central Piedmont’s online classes for the first time? As of Tuesday, Jan. 15, 2019, the college will implement the Online Learning Intro and it must be completed before registering for our online classes. Don’t wait until the day you register, complete it today so you’re ready to go.
- Unsure if taking online classes is the best option for you? Complete Central Piedmont’s Online Learning Intro to find out now.
Please note: If you were admitted to CPCC after summer 2018, have never registered for curriculum classes of any kind, and are attempting to only register for 100% online classes, please contact the ITS Helpdesk immediately at 704.330.5000 to setup your Blackboard account. Once your account is created, please return to the Online Learning Intro website and follow the instructions for accessing the orientation.
New Exhibit at the Bill and Patty Gorelick Gallery Harris Conference Center
From the Collection of Dr. Larry Brady
January 8 – December 13, 2019
The recently opened 39 piece exhibit at the Bill and Patty Gorelick Gallery Harris Campus represents a broad and diverse range from Dr. Larry Brady’s eclectic collection. The selection of paintings, engravings, photographs, and sculptures, are made from glass, wood, paint, ceramic, paper, fiber, and metal.
A critical component in Dr. Brady’s philosophy for collecting is the relationship with the artist. Through his understanding of and appreciation for the materials and the process, a connection to the artist is forged. Larry Brady enjoys living with each piece of art in his collection and sharing them with as many people as possible.
Don’t miss this opportunity to see extraordinary art from this collection!
Welcome to the first day of classes for the spring 2019 semester! There are some important – and exciting – changes happening at the library. The Hagemeyer Learning Resources Center – the old building that housed the Central Campus library – is now closed so the library has moved across the quad to 1241 Charlottetowne Ave., which is beside the curved Citizens Building.
The Learning Resources Center (and Pease Auditorium inside the building) will come down and be replaced by a new, state-of-the art library and student success center for our students. The new facility will also include a replacement of the existing Pease Auditorium and gallery. The new Central Campus library and student success center is scheduled to be completed in 2022.
Even in its new location across the quad, the fantastic library team is still here to assist you.
- Reading room, group & quiet study spaces
- Staff available to direct students & provide academic support
- Computers and printing labs
- Graphing calculator, laptop, and hotspot checkouts
- Information Technology Services (ITS) Express services
- Books & DVDs for checkout
Also, Blackboard orientation sessions are available the first week of classes:
- Students can sign up online for group sessionsat Central and Levine campuses or for one-on-one sessions at all campuses
Here’s the breakdown of the departments and services housed in this new location for the Central Campus library:
- ITS Help Desk
- Coppa Coffee (opening February 2019)
- Library Informational desk
- Computer lab
- Library Archives
- Library classroom
- Learning commons, collaboration space
- Library quiet study spaces
- English department
- Library administration
- Digital Media Services
Welcome to the new semester!
Please consider carpooling or using public transportation, and plan to arrive early to campus to allow enough time to park and find your class. Traffic is heavy during this time of the year, and there are construction and maintenance projects on most CPCC campuses – particularly Central Campus – that could cause issues. We strongly encourage you to carpool or use public transportation as Central Campus traffic volumes adjust during the first two weeks of class (please see the CATS / CPCC transportation “cheat sheet” at the bottom of this message and attached)
Also, consider visiting your campus ahead of time to get comfortable with your parking and classroom locations before classes start if this will be your first semester with the college.
Here are the latest updates (please see the Central Campus map for locations of parking decks and lots):
- PARKING DECKS:
- Central Campus parking deck #2 – 1108 Charlottetowne Ave.
- Central Campus parking deck #3 – 1345 E. 4th St.
- Central Campus parking deck #4 – 1225 E. 4th St.
- PARKING DECK CLOSURE: As a reminder, the parking deck located at the corner of 7th Street and Charlottetowne Ave. (parking deck #1), will remain closed until further notice while maintenance work continues.
- PARKING DECK / LOT AVAILABILITY: To help with the need for parking spaces on Central Campus, students can park in any of the other decks and in all surface lots. The only exceptions are spaces that require a handicap permit, visitor spaces, and designated maintenance vehicle or administration spaces. Also, students may not park in the SunTrust bank lot or risk having your car towed.
Get your parking decal. Local businesses strictly enforce towing. Student parking decals are available at any campus Cashiering office during regular operating hours. All Cashiering offices will have extended hours the first two weeks of the term (Jan. 14–24). During that time, the hours of operation are 8 a.m. – 6 p.m. Monday through Thursday, and 8 a.m. – 5 p.m. on Friday. Parking decals must be displayed by Thursday, Jan. 31.
If you have any questions, please contact the CPCC Information Center at 704.330.2722 (CPCC).
Have a great semester!

Construction on the new Merancas Campus classroom building will begin on Jan. 3. The driveway and two small parking lots in front of the Claytor building will be fenced off on Jan. 3, and remain closed to employees and students for the duration of the building project. Employees and students will need to park at the TS building or the CJ building.
Construction traffic will enter to the campus by the new Lake Norman Charter and exit the campus at the main drive in front of Claytor.
