What's Going on at Central Piedmont

Performances, student activities, lectures, community activities, and more.

  • Canceled: Sensoria Festival

    We regret to announce that the events of Central Piedmont Sensoria 2020 are canceled because of the coronavirus situation. This is in light of expert recommendations that optional gatherings of more than 100 people and events that do not ensure a safe public distance of at least six feet should be avoided. 

    For nearly 30 years, Central Piedmont has presented a spring festival for our students and their community. As that festival has evolved to include ever-increasing participation from across the college’s programs and community partners, the impact of the festival has both broadened and deepened. Therefore, we make this announcement with regret, but we feel it is the right and responsible decision for the health of our students and community audiences and their families. Thank you for your support and stay well.


    Experience and explore events focused on culture, arts and design, leadership and service, and science and technology during Central Piedmont's Sensoria 2020.

    The 27th anniversary of this festival brings U.S. Poet Laureate Joy Harjo to Central Piedmont as the 2020 Irene Blair Honeycutt Distinguished Lecturer.

    All Central Piedmont students, faculty, staff, and alumni as well as the community are encouraged to attend some of the best presentations in literature, music, visual arts, business and journalism, history, culture (and food!) around the Charlotte region and to discover Central Piedmont’s outstanding creative programs.

    For more information on refunds, including when and how you will get you refund, visit the financial aid awards and refunds page.

    Refund Disbursement Dates

    Every for-college-credit course has a 10% point (census date). Refunds are processed throughout the semester based on each course's census date. Review census date information (PDF) or find it on your course syllabus. Financial aid will not be credited to your student account before the census date of each for-college-credit course.
