Welcome to the Fall 2018 Semester!

Thank you for using your CPCC email account; it is the official means of college communication to you, so please check your account often.

As we gear up for the fall 2018 semester – classes begin Wednesday, Aug. 15 – 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 (including anything resembling tobacco products, such as e-cigarettes) are not allowed anywhere at all times. Thanks for your cooperation.

Please note there are many construction projects going on around CPCC’s campuses, so please follow all construction signs: Be alert and watch out around you. Consider taking out earbuds and taking off headphones while on campus walkways and when crossing the street.

Here are the six things you really need to know to be prepared for the new semester:

  1. Attend class on the first day.

Download the CPCC app and use your CPCC login to view your class schedule from My College (or go to My College to print your schedule). Bring a copy of your class schedule to ensure that the location has not changed. Pay attention to 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: Thursday, Aug. 16 is the last day to add a full semester class without permission. Another twelve-week session begins Thursday, Sept. 13 and the second eight-week short session begins Monday, Oct. 15. Check CPCC Schedule Builder for course availability.

  • NEW LOCATION FOR ADVANCED TECHNOLOGY CENTER (Central Campus): The newest building to open on Central Campus has a familiar name: The “Advanced Technology Center” is now located at the corner of Charlottetowne Ave. and 4th St. The old ATC is closed for construction.
  1. Use your CPCC Login to access My College.

Access My College to find important information, such as: your class schedule; residency status; priority registration dates; enrollment verification; critical alert information; your student ID number; and much more! Student IDs can be made at any CPCC campus.

  1. Pay your tuition the same day you register to avoid being dropped from your classes.

Payment is due the day of registration. For payment information, visit CPCC Cashiering (http://www.cpcc.edu/cashiering/tuition-payment-dates). Log into My College (http://mycollege.cpcc.edu/) to view your fall 2018 tuition bill.

  1. Get your student ID.

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.

  1. Read CPCC Today.

CPCC Today is your student e-newsletter sent to your CPCC email every Wednesday, or read it via the CPCC app. CPCC Today covers a wide range of useful information from registration, parking, and payment to important dates and events.

  1. Learn about refund delivery options if you receive financial aid.

Refunds for eligible students are processed electronically at CPCC! If you’re a new curriculum student registered for fall 2018 who receives financial aid, approximately two weeks after the semester begins, you will receive a bright green envelope from Bank Mobile. Inside your envelope will be an Instant Personal Code with instructions on choosing your refund delivery option. The personal code will be needed to choose your refund delivery option. Your refund delivery options are: an electronic deposit to a personal bank account or an electronic deposit to a Bank Mobile Vibe account. If your selection is an electronic deposit to BankMobile Vibe account, a CPCC BankMobile Debit Card will be mailed to you. Remember this is NOT a credit card but refund-only card.  If you have not received your card, make sure you have updated your address through MyCollege.  For more information, visit https://bankmobilevibe.com/. If you have any questions regarding the CPCC BankMobile debit card, please contact BankMobile at 1.866.782.0821 or the Cashiering office at 704.330.4472.

We are here to help you, and we are ready to help you reach your academic goals. If you have any questions, call the CPCC Information Center at 704.330.2722 or visit the Student Success Center at any campus.
