Welcome to the 2018 Spring Semester!

Dear CPCC Student,

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

As we gear up for the spring 2018 semester – classes begin this Thursday, Jan. 11 – 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 ear buds and taking off headphones while on campus walkways and when crossing the street. 

Here are the eight 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: Wednesday Jan, 17 is the last day to add a full semester class without permission. Another twelve-week session begins February 12 and the second eight-week short session begins March 19. Check CPCC Schedule Builder for course availability.

2.       Plan to arrive early to allow enough time to park and find your class.

Traffic is heavy during this time and there are construction and maintenance projects on Central Campus that could cause issues. We strongly encourage you to carpool or use public transportation as Central Campus traffic volumes adjust during the first two weeks of class. Download the CPCC app to see all CPCC campus maps – or go directly to the Central Campus map for more specific information – and follow #cpccparking on Twitter. Here are the latest updates:

·         PARKING DECK CLOSURE: Student Parking Deck 3, located at the corner of 7th Street and Charlottetowne Ave., will remain closed until further notice while maintenance work continues. Please use the Employee and Theater Deck on 4th Street (#22 on the map), Student Decks 1 and 2, and the available Central Campus surface lots.

·         PARKING DECK ACCESS: You can still enter and exit Student Parking Deck 1 on 4th St. however, due to construction, you cannot enter/exit the deck from Charlottetowne Ave.

·         LANE OPENING: There’s good news, though: The one lane of Charlottetowne Avenue (between 4th St. and Elizabeth Ave.) that was closed for construction of the new Advanced Technology Center on Central Campus will reopen sometime in mid-January.  

3.       Park only in areas designated for CPCC students.

Local businesses strictly enforce towing.  Student parking decals are available at any campus Cashiering office during regular operating hours and in Central High room 263 from 10:30 a.m. – 3:30 p.m. Monday (1/8) through Friday (1/19) next week. Parking decals must be displayed by Wednesday, Jan. 31. 

4.       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!

5.       Pay your tuition by the due date to avoid being dropped from your classes.

As of now, 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 spring 2018 tuition bill.

6.       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.

7.       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. 

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

Refunds are processed electronically at CPCC! If you’re a new curriculum student registered for spring 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.
