Campus Tours

Would you like to take a tour of Central Piedmont Community College? 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.

Open Houses and Information Sessions

The best way to learn about Central Piedmont and your program of interest is to come to an information session or open house. At information sessions and open houses, you will have the opportunity to 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. Information sessions and open houses are also a great way to meet other prospective students like yourself who could end up being your classmates.

Available information sessions are grouped by career field of interest. We hope to see you soon!
