Don’t freak out! You have an opportunity to find out how to correct it. CPCC offers many campus resources to help students succeed and accomplish their goals. Perhaps you have been contacted by someone informing you of the next steps to take in order to get back on the right path to academic success. Everyone at CPCC wants you to do well. Take advantage of the resources available in order to achieve success!
CPCC strongly recommends changing your password to be safe. It is also recommended you change your passwords to any website (banking/financial, email, social media, stores and commerce, etc) that you have an account with as a precautionary measure. While it’s common use for one single password for multiple websites, it is best practice not to use the same password for all website logins. This will help lessen the risk of becoming impacted if one service is compromised, thus ensuring a potential attacker doesn’t have your password for the multiple accounts you might own (including CPCC) if you are using one password for all websites.
To change your current CPCC password, please follow the instructions below:
- Go to www.cpcc.edu
- Under “Online Services,” click the first option “CPCC Login.”
- Under the column “CPCC Login Start,” click the third option “Manage Account.”
- Type your current CPCC username and password, and click “Login.”
- Choose the first option “Password – Change your password.”
- Enter a new password using the criteria as instructed, and click “Submit.”
- After hitting submit, you will be taken back to the previous screen and a message will appear .Your password was updated successfully.”
- Click “Logout” to finish.
Additional information, including other best practices documents and specific information security alerts, is available on the ITS Security website at http://www.cpcc.edu/its/faculty-staff/its-security/best-practices.
If you have any questions or need assistance changing your password, please contact the Help Desk at ext. 5000 or at firstname.lastname@example.org.

As we gear up for the fall 2012 semester – classes begin August 9 – we want to share some important reminders to help you during the first week of class. Remember, CPCC is a tobacco-free college. All tobacco products are prohibited everywhere at all times. We thank you for your cooperation.
Here are the eight essential things you need to know to be prepared for the new semester:
- Attend class on the first day. View and print your class schedule at My College (http://mycollege.cpcc.edu/) or through the Student Portal (http://my.cpcc.edu/). Bring a copy of your class schedule to ensure that the location has not changed. Note both the campus and building name for your classes. Look for information tables on campus to help you locate your classrooms or answer questions.
PLEASE NOTE: Sunday (8/12) is the last day to add a full semester class without prior permission.
- Plan to arrive early to allow enough time to park and find your class. Traffic is heavy during the first two weeks of class. Visit http://www.cpcc.edu/campuses for information about each campus.
- Park only in areas designated for CPCC students. Local businesses do enforce towing. Student parking decals are available at any campus Cashiering office during regular operating hours and in Central High Room 263 from 10 a.m. – 4 p.m. Monday through Friday during the first two weeks of school. Decals are also available in the lobby of the Levine IT building on Central Campus from 9 a.m. – 1 p.m., Thursday (8/9) and Monday (8/13) through Thursday (8/16). Parking decals must be displayed by August 19.
- Use your CPCC Login to access My College (http://mycollege.cpcc.edu/) to find important information such as residency status, priority registration dates, enrollment verification, critical alert information, your student ID number and much more!
- Pay your tuition by the due date to avoid being dropped from your classes. For payment information and due dates visit CPCC Cashiering (http://www.cpcc.edu/cashiering/tuition-payment-dates). Log into My College (http://mycollege.cpcc.edu/) to view your fall 2012 tuition bill.
- You will need your student ID to check out materials from the Library, use the testing and fitness centers, or access the computer labs on campus. Student Identification Card information is available online.
- Read CPCC Today, your student e-newsletter sent to your CPCC email every Wednesday. CPCC Today (http://www.cpcc.edu/cpcc-today) covers a wide range of useful information from registration, parking and payment to important dates and events.
- Have you received your CPCC Debit Card? If you’re a new curriculum student registered for fall 2012 who receives financial aid, you will receive a CPCC Debit Card. Remember this is NOT a credit card but a refund only card. Once you receive your card, follow the included instructions and select your refund choice. Keep your card in a safe place even if you do not expect a refund this semester, as there is a replacement card fee.If you have not received your card, make sure you have updated your address through MyCollege (http://mycollege.cpcc.edu/). For more information, visit www.cpccdebitcard.com. If you have any questions regarding the CPCC debit card, please contact Higher One at 1.866.782.0821 or the cashiering office at 704.330.6964.
