If you’re a new curriculum student registered for fall 2018 who receives financial aid, you will be receiving a bright green envelope from BankMobile in the mail soon. Please do not throw away this envelope!

Inside your envelope will be an Instant Personal Code with instructions on choosing how you would like your financial aid refund delivered to you. The Instant Personal Code is required for you to choose your refund delivery option.

Your refund delivery options are either:

If you choose to electronically deposit funds to a BankMobile Vibe account, a CPCC BankMobile Debit Card will be mailed to you. Remember this is NOT a credit card but a refund-only card.

If you haven’t received your green envelope by Sept. 1, there may be an issue with your mailing address. Therefore, please confirm CPCC has your updated address on file by accessing it through MyCollege. If you see your address is incorrect in MyCollege, please update it.

Your BankMobile card can be used from year to year, so don’t throw it away.

If You See Something, Say Something.

Welcome to the fall semester! Campus safety is the top priority of CPCC’s College Security team and Emergency Management team.

We want to take this opportunity to remind you of the information available on CPCC’s website about What To Do In An Emergency, for situations including an active shooter, severe weather, fire and more.

If there’s an active shooter on or near a CPCC campus, would you know what to do? It’s incredibly important for employees and students to be prepared. Please take a moment today to watch this powerful video to learn about the “Run. Hide. Fight.” concept to help you know what to do if an active shooter is on campus or in a building where you are located.

Most importantly, CPCC relies on its students and employees to be the eyes and ears of the college, so if you see something, say something. If you have a concern of an immediate threat, please call CPCC College Security Services at 704.330.6911.

If you know of behavior that is concerning or disruptive to the college community, please use the online form at this site to report a concern for referral to the Care Team, which is a cross-unit group whose members consist of college staff from Student Services, College Security Services, Counseling, Human Resources and the Learning Unit.

Here are multiple ways to contact College Security if you have additional concerns:

Library Services News

Welcome to the fall 2018 semester!  With the beginning of a new semester, we’d just like to take some time to remind you of a few of the services that the library has to offer, as well as highlight a few recent changes.

Books and More!
As always, the library wants to help out with your research and educational needs.  To that end, we provide access to a wide variety of resources, both in print and online.

We have a new online catalog that allows you to search for both articles and books or DVDs available in the library (or in electronic format), all at once. Check it out here.

You might also be interested in checking out some of our online resources available on our Research Databases page.

Need help using any of our resources?  Don’t be afraid to Ask a Librarian!  Library staff are available to help in person, over the phone or online.

Unfortunately, online book renewals and placing online holds are not working right now. However, you may contact any CPCC Library location to place a hold or ask to have your books renewed.

Study Space?  We Have That!
Need a quiet place to study?  All CPCC campus libraries have dedicated quiet study spaces.  Additionally, Central, Cato, Harris and Levine campuses have study rooms available. You can book these study rooms yourself online. Book early though, as they tend to fill up quickly!

Faculty Resources
We also offer a number of resources just for faculty.  Be sure to check out our Faculty Resources page to see what we can offer you.

We hope everyone has a great semester!
