The best way to learn about Central Piedmont and your program of interest is to come visit us — we offer campus tours, open houses, and program information sessions.

Visit the calendar of upcoming campus tours, open houses, and information sessions.

Attend an Open House

At an open house, you will have the opportunity to tour campus facilities and meet Central Piedmont faculty and staff — and possibly current students in the program — who will discuss what studying at Central Piedmont is like, eligibility requirements, and how to get started. Open houses are also a great way to meet other prospective students who could end up being your classmates.

Campus Tours (9 or Fewer Visitors)

Campus tours are the perfect opportunity to get familiar with the community life. We have six area campuses with many programs to choose from. Each campus offers a selection of general education courses, but available majors/programs will vary by location. Walking tours are provided by our Student Ambassadors or Recruiters. Tours will take approximately 45 minutes.

Group Campus Tours (10 or More Visitors)

Central Piedmont is a great place to bring your group for a tour. Touring the college campus can inspire your students or participants to pursue a post-secondary education at Central Piedmont. We look forward to welcoming your group of 10 or more to campus.

  • Group Walking Tour (Without Presentation)

    A walking campus tour highlights our campus facilities and areas of interest for students. Walking tours last about 45 minutes, depending on students’ questions and interest, and must be scheduled at least two weeks (10 business days) in advance.

  • Group Walking Tour with Presentation

    The group walking tour with presentation begins with a walking tour of our campus, highlighting campus facilities and areas of student life, followed by a 30-minute seated presentation offering an overview of the opportunities offered at Central Piedmont. A typical walking tour with a presentation lasts 1.5 hours and must be scheduled at least three weeks (15 business days) in advance.
