Central Piedmont Community College Reviews
I have been living in the Charlotte area for about a year now while attending CPCC. This is not a four year university although I am in the process of trying to transfer to a four year, this a two year community college that offers great transfer programs. Not only that, there are so many activities going on around campus such as job fairs, participation of different clubs, and sometimes free food! The transfer advisors here are really helpful and provided me all of the information I needed in order to graduate and transfer. Professors are very helpful as well, they take the time to make sure you understand the material and answer any questions you may have no matter if it's a silly one. Overall, CPCC is a great community college to attend if you are living in the Charlotte area or even online!
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!
