Interested in taking college classes this fall? The staff at Piedmont Community College is available Monday – Thursday, 8 a.m. – 5 p.m. and Friday, 8 a.m. – 4 p.m. each week to help you with advising and registration.

To make it more accessible for those who are unavailable before 5 p.m., the College staff will be on hand until 6:30 p.m. on Wednesday, July 19, Thursday, July 20, Wednesday, July 26, and Thursday, July 27 on both the Person and Caswell County Campuses.

Registration will continue through July and August with classes beginning on Wednesday, August 16. Fall brochures, which include dates, times, and instructor listings of some classes being offered at PCC, were mailed to households in Person County and Caswell County. This publication also provides important information on PCC’s programs of study and resources for students, as well as a schedule of Continuing Education classes. Brochures are also available at PCC and at the public library in each county.

The most up-to-date schedules are available online on PCC’s website at www.piedmontcc.edu/classschedule. Class schedules also may be accessed using the WebAdvisor option on PCC’s website. WebAdvisor offers the most up-to-date class listing and is open to both prospective and current students. Returning students may use WebAdvisor to register for classes online.

Prospective students who have not applied for admission should visit the Student Development Office on either campus. These offices are located in Building E on the Person County Campus and Building K on the Caswell County Campus. Students will need to choose a program of study, submit a completed PCC Application for Admission online at www.piedmontcc.edu, and submit the required official transcripts. Some students also will need to complete placement tests prior to registering. A few PCC programs, such as Associate Degree Nursing, have additional admissions requirements. For more information, contact PCC’s Office of Admissions. Once the admissions process has been completed, students will be assigned an academic advisor to advise them during the registration process.

Why PCC?

• PCC offers a great opportunity for you and your wallet! Students can complete general education or program specific classes for a fraction of the cost of a four-year institution. Financial Aid, scholarships, and a payment plan program are also available.

• Class sizes at PCC are smaller than most four-year institutions, thus offering more occasions to interact with instructors and other students. One-on-one tutoring is also available through the Academic Success Center on each campus.

• PCC offers hands-on learning in many programs of study, including Phlebotomy and other health care programs, Welding, Film & Video Production Technology, Digital Effects & Animation Technology, Cosmetology, Fine Arts, Electrical Power Production Technology, and Mechatronics to name a few!

• Students can explore different course options to find what interests them most before finalizing a program of study.

• Many PCC programs lead graduates directly to a job. Enjoy working with your hands? Consider Electrical Systems Technology where the average annual starting salaries are in the $35,000 - $45,000 range!

• Transferring from PCC to a four-year institution has been made easy with various articulation agreements.
