The Academic Learning Center (ALC) is here to serve the academic needs of the students of CPCC. The ALC is composed of dedicated staff members who each have an interest in student academic success at Central Piedmont Community College. For any student enrolled in a curriculum course who needs individual assistance in addition to that which they are receiving in the classroom, we have caring qualified staff who are ready to help them learn.

The ALC is committed to helping students in three crucial areas:

  1. Overcoming difficulties with academic coursework.
  2. Promotion of independent learning.
  3. Proactive endowment of students with skills necessary to promote academic and life-long learning success.


The staff of the ALC is dedicated to supporting students who seek to strengthen their academic deficiencies through student focused interventions in order to build academic confidence and success.

For a listing of the hours of operation for all ALC services please visit our Hours of Operation page.

We are located on the Central Campus, Room CH103.   704 330-6474
