Become a Student

Congratulations on taking the first step to achieving your educational and life goals! Central Piedmont Community College's (CPCC) College and Career Readiness Intake and Assessment Centers are designed to help new students enroll in GED and HiSET classes, Adult High School, English as a Second Language (ESL) and our exciting College and Work Focused programs.

Students will attend an orientation and assessment session and then meet with a referral specialist who will help them select the best course option for them.  Students will be fully prepared to begin class after completing the orientation process.

All new College and Career Readiness students, or former students who have not attended class in 90 days, must attend a New Student Orientation at the Intake and Assessment Center.

Minors, please click here for additional information.

Students interested in the Adult High School program may want to schedule an advising session prior to attending an orientation.

Please note that the length of the orientation process varies from one to three days, depending on the campus.
