Testing and Assessment Centers
The mission of the Central Piedmont Testing Center is to enhance the student learning process by providing comprehensive testing services to the Central Piedmont student and faculty populations, local businesses and industries, as well as the Charlotte-Mecklenburg community and surrounding areas.
Central Piedmont has testing centers at several campuses and provides the following services (testing services availability varies by campus):
- placement testing as part of getting started at Central Piedmont (including screening tests for EMT and dietary managers)
- course testing for Central Piedmont faculty
- TEAS testing for healthcare programs
- College-Level Examination Program (CLEP®) testing
- GED® testing
- Pearson Vue testing
- distance proctoring services for students taking a distance course through an institution other than Central Piedmont
Central Piedmont does not administer the ACT or SAT college entrance exams. If you are in need of special accommodations for testing, please contact Disability Services.
In the event of inclement weather or other emergency situations, please listen to area radio and television stations or call 704.330.6888 for announcements regarding the operation of the college. When the college closes, all classes are cancelled and testing appointments will need to be rescheduled. ESL testing is available at Central Campus only.
Student Academic Integrity
The purpose of the Central Piedmont Code of Student Academic Integrity is to support the continued growth and development of the foundation of a strong academic community based on the principles of academic honesty and integrity. Learn more about 7.10 Student Academic Integrity Policy.
Testing Center Locations and Hours
Take time to familiarize yourself with directions to and parking at your scheduled testing center well in advance of your test, and on the day of your test leave with plenty of time to arrive to your test on time. All tests must be turned in at the testing center's closing (time varies by center) — plan accordingly based on the length of your test.
A photo ID is required for all testing services. To maintain testing integrity, and as a courtesy to others, please do not bring children, cell phones, or other electronic devices into testing areas.
