If you haven’t yet registered for fall semester classes at Piedmont Community College, you still have time to do so. Registration will be held through Tuesday, Aug. 21. PCC staff will be available to assist registering students from 9 a.m.-6:30 p.m. each of those days. Classes begin on Aug. 20, so don’t wait too long.

“We still have openings available in most programs,” said Lee Proctor, Dean, Student Development, “but especially in some of our technical education programs such as Electrical/Electronics, Facilities Maintenance, Electrical Power Production, Industrial Systems, and Carpentry. We invite anyone who has been considering enrolling to come on to PCC and let us help you get started this fall.”

Students who plan to enroll in the 13-week semester, beginning Sept. 11, also receive an advantage in registering now. Students who register by Sept. 21 may use any financial aid they have for the 13-week semester, Proctor said.

For students who are looking for a way to way for tuition, PCC offers a payment plan through the College Foundation (CFI). The program allows students to pay their tuition in three monthly payments. Students who register for fall and enroll in this loan program will have their first payment due on Sept. 1. For more information on scholarships, loans, or the payment plan, visit the Financial Aid Office on either campus or call (336) 322-4004.

Information about PCC’s programs and a schedule of PCC’s fall classes are available on the College website at www.piedmontcc.edu. Both an interactive copy of the schedule booklet mailed to all households in Person and Caswell counties and the WebAdvisor schedule may be accessed online.

PCC is offering a new program for fall semester, Health Information Technology, leading to national certification. This program provides students with the skills to process, manage, and report health information in health care facilities and offices. PCC has several other programs for persons interested in working in a healthcare setting. These include Healthcare Management, Medical Coding, Nursing Assistant, Phlebotomy, and Office Administration/Medical Office Administration. PCC continues to offer technology-based programs in Computer Information, Computer Programming, Information Systems Security, and Web Technologies. Specialty programs in Film and Video Production and Digital Effects and Animation are offered in state-of-the-art facilities on the Caswell County Campus in Yanceyville, and the Gunsmithing program, one of only two in the state, is based on the Person County Campus.

Through its Associate in Fine Arts program, PCC offers classes in various arts such as drawing, music, drama, and ceramics (pottery) at the Kirby Learning Studios and the Kirby Theater at the Kirby Cultural Arts Center in uptown Roxboro.
