      STUDENTS TAKING ONLINE COURSES: If this is your first time taking an online class or have earned a lower than C grade in a previous online course, it is mandatory for students to complete the Online Learning Instruction tutorial. Students will not be systematically able to register for courses until the tutorial has been completed.  It is also mandatory for each online course that a student complete an Enrollment Verification (EVA). This is typically the 1st assignment and will not be available until the first day of your online course via Blackboard. This is communicated through the course/instructor syllabus.

      8. CHECK AND PAY COLLEGE FEES : Even though the program is tuition-free for the fall, spring and summer semesters, students will be responsible for insurance fees and student fees each semester. Student fees must be paid before the first day of the semester to prevent a DEREG from the elected courses. Check your balance and pay your bill through your MyCollege account.  For questions about the fee structure, please contact the Sponsor desk at 704-330-4262.

      9. PICK UP YOUR CPCC STUDENT IDENTIFICATION CARD: Get your free Student ID card after you register and your fees.  It will serve as your library card and may be used in the community for a variety of discounts. You will need to bring a photo ID in order to obtain a student ID card.

      PICK UP A PARKING PERMIT: Parking permits are required on all CPCC campuses.  You can pick up your parking permit at the Cashiering offices on any of our six campuses.

      10. BUY YOUR BOOKS: Print your schedule from your My College account and take it to your campus bookstore or buy your books online.  Not all books are available at all campuses. It is suggested to wait until after the first class meeting or when syllabus has been reviewed before purchasing books. Cost associated with books are student/parent responsibility.
