Central Piedmont Cares – Let Us Know How We Can Help

The college has established the Central Piedmont Cares initiative to connect directly with you and to help you with any challenges you’re facing. Although we miss seeing you on campus, we can still help meet your needs and offer support. Many in-person support services that students rely on are now offered remotely. Whether you need to explore strategies to take care of your mental health, need help planning your next semester or career move, or have financial or other vital need concerns – we are here.

Please visit the Central Piedmont Cares website for information regarding available resources. If you need additional assistance, please fill out the Central Piedmont Cares student form. Once the submission is received, a Central Piedmont staff member will reach out to you within the next 2-3 business days during standard college hours of operation (Monday-Friday, 8 a.m.-5 p.m.).

Please stay encouraged and focused on your goals this upcoming semester. If you’re experiencing issues, please know we are here to support you. Please call our Information Center at 704.330.2722 during business hours or submit your questions online for help.

Advisory: Gov. Cooper extends statewide stay-at-home order through May 8

North Carolina Governor Roy Cooper announced yesterday he is extending his statewide stay-at-home order through May 8. The order continues to restrict gatherings of more than 10 and allows only essential businesses and institutions to operate. The stay-at-home  order is aimed at slowing the spread of the coronavirus, which causes COVID-19.

As announced previously, Central Piedmont Community College will complete the spring 2020 semester with students learning – and the vast majority of employees working – remotely.

The spring 2020 graduation ceremony scheduled for May 14 has been postponed. The college plans to hold a number of smaller, in-person, program-focused ceremonies on Central Campus, July 29-31. We will communicate the specific plans as soon as they are complete, but please mark these dates on your calendar. In the meantime, the Graduation Committee is exploring other ways to honor graduates during the month of May. More details to come.

Our summer terms will take place as scheduled. The method of instructional delivery – in-person, online or a combination of the two – will depend on the future severity of the pandemic. Our top priority will be keeping everyone safe. Priority registration for our current students for the summer and fall semesters began April 17. Open registration for new students begins April 27.

Current students who have not done so already should register for their summer and fall classes quickly while plenty of seats are still available.

Please continue to take precautions to stay home and stay healthy. The college has established the Central Piedmont Cares initiative to connect with you and to connect you with helpful resources, as we all continue to navigate this rapidly changing situation. Visit the Central Piedmont Cares website for information regarding available resources.
