Orientation

Orientation

Wherever you are in your college journey, Central Piedmont has a couple of orientation options to help you learn more about the Central Piedmont experience. Choose whichever session works best for you.

Connect Orientation

Connect Orientation aims to connect you to career fields and programs, Central Piedmont student services and support teams, and your future classmates. You will also take a tour of our campuses and enjoy fun, food, and giveaways.

At each session, we will provide information about each program upon request, however, a representative may not be available for every program. We will provide information on programs offered at Harper Campus at Connect Orientations on Central Campus.

Please check back for information about Connect Orientation 2020. However, you can still attend an ongoing orientation session to enroll for fall 2019.

Ongoing New Student Orientations

Once you have completed placement testing or received a placement testing waiver, sign up for orientation. Orientation is a required part of the enrollment process for new students and for students returning to Central Piedmont after more than one year; orientation is optional for visiting students. Please be aware that some programs of study have additional mandatory orientation sessions. In the hour-long orientation session, you will:

  • review enrollment steps
  • learn to navigate the Central Piedmont website
  • gain a better understanding of Central Piedmont and its many programs and services

Orientation is held at every campus at least once per week, is offered online, and is offered by request if you can't attend a scheduled session. If you are a deaf or hard-of-hearing person and will need a sign language interpreter for this orientation, please contact sam.mccord@cpcc.edu or contact Disability Services.

After completing orientation, we ask that you please give us your feedback by completing the new student orientation survey.
