Are you experiencing life circumstances that prevent you from focusing on your education? Single Stop can help.
Free Tax Services
Through April 15, Single Stop partnered with Community Link during the 2021 tax season to offer IRS Volunteer Income Tax Assistance (VITA) free tax services to eligible participants. If your household still needs tax services, please learn about other Mecklenburg County tax preparation services.
Borrow a Laptop or Mobile Hotspot
We want to do all we can to ensure you continue in your classes and achieve your academic goals.
If you are having trouble accessing technology, a limited number of laptops and WiFi hotspots are available for loan — at no cost. You will be able to use these devices as long as you are enrolled in classes and until we are able to resume traditional, in-person classes.
To request a device, complete the laptop loan application. The Single Stop team will contact you with more details after they review your application.
Central Piedmont has partnered with Single Stop, a non-profit organization, to create a one-stop shop that can connect you with a variety of resources you may need to stay focused on your academic goals. Single Stop uses specially-designed software that, through a series of questions, identifies resources that students may be eligible for. These resources include:
- free tax preparation and counseling
- benefits counseling
- Financial Literacy Programming: Keys to Financial Success
- referrals for other campus and community resources
All Single Stop services are free for qualifying Central Piedmont students and your family members.
Single Stop is also committed to serving our veterans and their families. If you are a veteran, please call or stop by Single Stop in Central Campus, Central High Building Room 100 to make an appointment.
