I have been taking dual credit classes with CPCC and it has been one of the best academic experiences of my life. With the program that I have been enrolled in, the Career and College Promise Program, I do not have to pay tuition, only class fees and textbook fees, and it has been an amazing money saver. I plan on transferring to a four-year college and taking these classes has helped me better prepare for the level of classes that I will be taking there and has also helped me save tons of money to put towards that university. It is super easy to apply, however, their communication gets a little iffy sometimes. With all that being said, I am so thankful for CPCC and the programs that they offer to high school students, college students, and even people just looking for a fun class throughout the year. Two thumbs up!

I loved how much the staff cares at this campus. I attend the Matthews campus. I have so many resources I can use to help build my classes, get extra help if needed, and feel comfortable in my classes. They really care about your well being. I moved from Texas a little over a year ago, and community college was the best route for me. I am in nursing school, and I love it. They will take their time to help you with anything!
As an International Student from South Africa, Central Piedmont has honestly become my new home. I always thought home meant one place, but I soon realized that this is not the case - home can be in more than one place, in more than one person. Central Piedmont has an immense diversity, and with this diversity they encourage connections and through connections it allows for immense opportunity. I have excelled academically in the classroom but also found myself to have excelled outside the classroom. In this I have become secretary of the Global Student Association, member of Phi Theta Kappa Honor Society, member of the Global Engagement program, member of the North Carolina Students of Global distinction and so much more. Through these opportunities I have made lifelong friends, allowed doors to open for myself and ultimately invested in my future. I am proud to be a Central Piedmont student and would recommend it to so many future students.
