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

New Student Orientations

Orientation is also a required step. If you are a returning student who completed orientation in the past, you do not need to complete orientation again.

Orientation will help you navigate the college, and decide which careers and programs you are interested in. It is held online and in-person on our six campuses. 

Schedule to attend a live, on-campus New Student Orientation session in person at one of our six locations.

Or, you can complete orientation online in Brightspace by logging in with your Central Piedmont username and password and selecting Enroll in Course. You can activate your account or reset your password using our online tools. It may take an hour for your login to work once you activate it.

If you need help, email a Navigator or call the ITS Service Desk at 704.330.5000.

If you will need a sign language interpreter for this orientation, please contact Disability and Access Services.

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