Office of the President

Welcome to Central Piedmont Community College. We are delighted you are interested in the college. Please take your time while visiting the college website. It’s full of information about our nearly 300 degree, diploma, and certificate programs and other services. Central Piedmont is here to help anyone who is searching for a pathway to opportunity, further education, and career advancement.

Central Piedmont can be the first step you take toward earning a four-year degree, or the college can take you directly to a well-paying career. Central Piedmont can also help you keep your business skills up-to-date for years to come as you advance through your career. We also offer tuition-free programs for high school students, GED/adult high school, and English as a Second Language (ESL).

Central Piedmont believes you are the future of this community. That's why we work hard to enhance our programs and processes to serve you better. We recently embraced a "One College" model to provide you an extraordinary student experience, regardless if you take classes at one of our eight locations or opt for online learning.

At Central Piedmont, we believe college work should lead to real work, and that it shouldn't cost a fortune for you to become real-world ready. You can save more than $42,000 over two years at Central Piedmont compared to four-year universities in North Carolina. You might even be able to attend Central Piedmont debt-free.

Thanks again for visiting the college via our website. If you couldn’t find what you’re looking for or have any questions, please go to our contact us page and send us a message, or give us a call.

We hope to see you soon as a Central Piedmont student. Best wishes in your future endeavors.

Kandi W. Deitemeyer, Ed.D.
President, Central Piedmont Community College
