Not everyone learns the same way. Not everyone has the same family or work situations. Not everyone has reliable transportation. For that reason, Piedmont Community College has various ways to take classes.
Traditional face-to-face classes are offered on the Person and Caswell County campuses. These classes are ones in which the instructor meets with the class every session. Traditional face-to face classes are offered during the day, evening, and weekend.
Distance education classes are those that are not 100% traditional face-to-face classes. Types of distance education classes include online, telecourses, video conferencing, information highway, web enhanced and hybrid.
On Campus Locations
Piedmont Community College has two campuses that serve as on-site locations for classes.
The Person County campus
serves as the main campus for the College. The President and Vice Presidents are housed on the Person Campus in Building A, as well as the business office. The Person Campus is also home to most of the curriculum programs offered by the College.
The Caswell County campus
offers selected classes from business, computer applications, general education, health and human services and office administration. Students can complete any of the following eight associate degree or diploma programs in their entirety on the Caswell Campus: Criminal Justice Technology, Cosmetology, Digital Effects and Animation Technology, Early Childhood Associate, Film and Video Production Technology, Office Administration, University Transfer and Welding.
Distance Learning Classes
Distance Learning allows you to take accredited Piedmont Community College courses from home or any location, at your convenience. Many students appreciate the flexible scheduling and convenience of not having to travel to campus on a regular basis. This is ideal for those with demanding work schedules, family responsibilities, and those who cannot travel to campus due to transportation, scheduling conflicts, or physical challenges.
In addition, some students prefer the independence and convenience of Distance Learning courses. Distance Learning courses give students greater flexibility in course scheduling and students find that they have greater control over the learning process and are able to customize their course time and work in a way that best suits their specific schedule.
