New Process to Prepare for Central Piedmont’s Online Classes

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.
