New Homeschool and Non-partner Schools Students
To apply for Dual Enrollment at Central Piedmont, you must complete the following steps.
1. Attend a Career & College Promise Information Session
Before you begin the Dual Enrollment process, we strongly encourage you to attend a Dual Enrollment information session for a comprehensive overview of the program with Q and A sessions.
2. Apply and Get Your Student ID Number
You will apply through CFNC to get your Central Piedmont ID number. You will have to create an account with CFNC if you do not already have one. Please be sure to complete all required fields accurately as inaccurate or incomplete submissions will not be transferred into our system by CFNC.
Once we have received your application, a Central Piedmont ID number will be assigned and you will receive an email from email@example.com. This email will include your student ID number which you need when you create your Central Piedmont login.
If you do not receive an email with your student ID number within three business days of submitting your Career & College Promise application, please check your junk or spam email folder. If it is not there, email us to ask about the status of your application.
3. Create Your Central Piedmont Student Login and Sign Up for Multi-factor Authentication
The day after you get the email with your Central Piedmont student ID number (step 2), you may activate your student login.
Your username is the first part of your email. For example, if your email is firstname.lastname@example.org, your username is newstudent01.
All students are required to sign up for multi-factor authentication (MFA). Learn more about how to set up MFA on your device.
4. Learn about the paperwork you need to complete to apply for Dual Enrollment.
You must submit all of the required documentation. We need this information to successfully process your application so you can enroll in the program and register for classes.
You must submit all the information at the same time. If your documentation is incomplete or missing any required documents, it will not be saved or processed.
Learn about course credit that may be granted for your Advanced Placement (AP) test scores as well as placement into MAT 271 (Calculus).
You must submit this paperwork each semester you want to be dual-enrolled at Central Piedmont.
- Pathway approval form:
- signed copy of your high school transcript (reference this non-partner school student high school transcript example (PDF) for all required information). Your high school transcripts must include your:
- grade level (9th, 10th, 11th, or 12th grade)
- high school courses completed and in-progress
- unweighted high school GPA
- proof of "college readiness" assessment scores (if applicable); we do not accept screenshots of scores
- online printout of homeschool card (if applicable)
Submit Your Paperwork
You can submit your completed documents:
We will send a notification to your Central Piedmont student email address once you are cleared to register.
5. Complete Checkpoint Orientation and Advising
You are required to complete orientation and advising prior to the first semester you are dual enrolled at Central Piedmont. The session is called Checkpoint, and you will take the Checkpoint quiz to get credit for completing this requirement.
You have two options for completing orientation and advising:
- Attend a live webinar orientation session.
- Review the presentation online on your own.
You must pass the Checkpoint quiz to receive credit for completing orientation for either option you choose.
You are responsible for the information covered at orientation. You can refer back to the presentation at any time, but you only need to complete this requirement once.
You will not be able to register for classes your first semester until this is completed; we verify your quiz results. Please allow one business day for scores to be entered in our database.
If you have questions about what classes to take, reach out to us.
6. Fees and Books
Please refer to the Fees and Books page for details and deadlines.
7. Register for Dual Enrollment Classes
Once we have processed your paperwork, we will place you into your chosen pathway and will contact you at your Central Piedmont email letting you know that you are cleared to register for classes.
Then, register for classes online using the Student Planning menu in MyCollege. You may only register for courses from your approved pathway. If you register for a class that is outside of your approved pathway, you will be dropped from that class.
