What is your overall opinion of this school?

Overall, I believe Central Piedmont is a great school. My situation going into college was a bit unusual and the admission team at Central Piedmont was extremely helpful and they worked with me every day until we could figure out what was best for me as a student. Once enrolled, I was very pleased with my classes and schedule. My professor always made themselves available and I felt challenged academically. The Central campus, in particular, has a great location. It is near the city and it provided many spaces for eating, studying and just hanging out with classmates. The one thing I will say is that there is always a construction site that disturbs the campus. I understand this is a good thing, but it was still very inconvenient at times.

What is your overall opinion of this school?

Central Piedmont is an overall great community college. It is a great transition from high school to a four-year university. CPCC offers many kinds of extremities such as extracurricular activities, great food, great classroom quality, and so much more. I give CPCC a solid 4 stars. CPCC has a great transition from highschool to college. Many students use this route when they want to go to college, they are just not sure what they want to do yet. The school offers a Passport program. This is for students who are going to the University of North Carolina Charlotte, but want to get their first two years complete at CPCC. These students take classes to get their general core classes out of the way, but are already committing to UNCC, so they can go straight to taking major classes. CPCC also offers the Middle School program. This program allows students to take college courses while they are still in high school. This is a very popular program because these students graduate highschool with a diploma as well as an Associates Degree. The classroom size is about 18:1, so the students are getting great interactions with their instructors. The instructors know their students by name and can do much more hands on in their classes. The students get a much more personal learning experience. There are many extracurricular activities that students can partake in during the school year. Unfortunately, there are no sports programs, but there are plenty of academic activities people can be involved in, such as Enactus, baking club, and so much more. In these clubs, students can meet other students who have similar interests and enjoy something together. I would give Central Piedmont 4 stars overall.

I love this college! I love that you can pick your schedules and the staff is incredibly knowledgeable and friendly. The advisors are helpful and find the answers you need. I recommend this college for people who want to go back to school full time or just to slowly further their degree! The curriculum is versatile and the campuses are localized. They have everything you would want in a community college!

What is your overall opinion of this school?

Central Piedmont is a great school for students who are trying to bring their grades up, trying to save money, or both. In many ways, it is academically better than some state schools and it is substantially cheaper (approximately $1500 or less each semester). I recommend going at least two years, to avoid student loan debt, figure out what you want to major in, and ease your way into the college life and a life in which you are no longer dependent are your parents.c

What is your overall opinion of this school?

Central Piedmont Community College is a great school that offers students great education at a very affordable price. Many students I know who attend here school say was the best choice they made because it helped them save money and it gave them new opportunities to explore and adventure through different fields/programs and make decisions as to what careers they are interested in. As a student who planning to transfer, I can say that attending this school was the best decision that I've made because it was very affordable. The academic programs are really nice, and while there isn't a huge variety of sports, there are many activities, programs, and clubs that you can participate in.

What is your overall opinion of this school?

Central Piedmont Community College is the best option for students who want a great education at a low cost. In just two years you can recieve you associate's degree and at less than half the cost of a four year university. There are lots of extracurricular activities to get involved with as well as multiple campuses to learn in. Going to CPCC allowed me to continue my education while also saving enough money to buy a used car and help my family in a time of crisis. Without the support of my teachers and counselors at CPCC I do not know where I'd be today.

Central Piedmont Community College is an excellent school. The counselors help you get into the classes as needed. Coming in as a tranfer student they helped me get me the information I needed to graduate with a degree. I would recommend this school to all that are trying to transfer to a four year college and who is trying to further there education.

What is your overall opinion of this school?

I think this a great community college, especially because they participate in the Career and College Promise program, which is a dual-enrollment program that allows high school students like myself to gain college credits and even get their Associates Degree (like I currently am working towards) while also finishing high school. Although I do not get to experience every aspect of being an adult college student because of my age, I still that their campus is a wonderful environment to grow as an individual and meet new people. The curriculum is also delightfully challenging with instructors who are always willing to help students in any way that they can, and the urban setting of the campus gives it a nice fast-paced and lively ambiance for those who like this sort of campus setup.

What is your overall opinion of this school?

It’s a good steppingstone to take pre-requisite courses, and then transfer to a four-year university for degree completion. The professors are very helpful and always available. Most students commute from home as there is no on-campus housing, so there is not much camaraderie among the students outside of the classroom.
