Central Piedmont provides new student orientation to help you feel prepared for your new academic journey.

New Student Orientations

Orientation is a required part of the enrollment process for all degree-seeking and transfer students. Once you have a Central Piedmont login, sign up for orientation. New student orientation lasts about two hours and will help you:

  • review next steps
  • navigate the Central Piedmont website
  • explore programs and careers
  • learn about programs and services to support you and help you get involved

Orientation will also help you decide which careers and programs you are interested in. Orientation is normally held at every campus, every week of the year. From March 13, 2020 until further notice, all orientations will be conducted online. If you can't attend a scheduled session, email fye@cpcc.edu or call 704.330.6100 for other options.

Register for a new student orientation session.

If you will need a sign language interpreter for this orientation, please email disability.counselingservices@cpcc.edu or call 704.330.6621. For more information, visit the Disability Services site.

After completing orientation, we ask that you please give us your feedback by completing the new student orientation survey.

Some programs have additional orientation sessions you will be required to attend if you enroll in that program.
