CPCC to offer shorter, fall semester sessions to students

last modified Aug 20, 2012 08:26 AM

Because Central Piedmont Community College (CPCC) is committed to being an accessible education option that meets the needs of local residents, it will offer multiple short sessions this fall, giving students another way to earn full academic credit.

The College will add almost 370 classes to its already impressive list of curriculum classes. By doing this, CPCC will make more than 4,000 seats available to any student seeking a college degree or certificate.

“We enroll a number of non-traditional students – individuals who hold full-time jobs, while juggling family and school responsibilities,” said Dr. Tony Zeiss, president of CPCC. “Our new short sessions will not only help this student population, but also the many Charlotte residents who want to take those first steps toward achieving their academic goals before the end of the year.”

CPCC is offering 12-week, eight-week and four-week class sessions this fall. The beginning of each session varies – some sessions start as early as the second week of September, while others begin as late as the last week in October.

The College’s short sessions will focus on those classes that are typically in highest demand at CPCC and tend to fill quickly; these include reading, math, English, nursing, and communications courses among others.

Interested individuals may still apply for financial aid, take any necessary placement tests, attend orientation and register for these classes. To learn how to get started, please call 704.330.6006.
