Students who plan to register for Fall Semester classes at Piedmont Community College will be able to do so next week on Wednesday, July 23, and Thursday, July 24. Registration hours are 9 a.m.-6:30 p.m. on both the Person County Campus and the Caswell County Campus.

PCC will launch its new Historic Preservation program this fall for students of all backgrounds and levels of experience. The coursework includes archival research, building design, drafting, conservation techniques, building renovation, field data collection, historic preservation, documentation, sustainable building design, and the application of preservation law. Classes will be offered both on campus and online.

PCC also will offer a new Health Science diploma program this fall. This program offers three tracts: Nursing Assistant, Phlebotomy, and Medical Assisting. These tracts offer a new diploma option for students and are designed to help students achieve the prerequisites needed for the Associate Degree Nursing and Medical Assistant programs. Once students complete the required prerequisites, they may be admitted to the Associate Degree Nursing or Medical Assisting programs and may continue course work that may lead to licensure as a Registered Nurse or certification as a Medical Assistant.

Registered nurses (RN) who want to begin working towards a Bachelor of Science degree in Nursing (BSN) may begin that process at PCC this fall. PCC offers prerequisite courses towards this degree and affords the convenience and affordability of a community college.

PCC continues to offer University Transfer options for students who want to complete two years of coursework at PCC and transfer to a four-year college or university. New articulation agreements between North Carolina Community Colleges and the University of North Carolina System ensure a smooth transfer for students earning Associate of Arts (A.A.), Associate of Science (A.S.) or Associate of Fine Arts (A.F.A.) degrees. These students will be admitted to UNC System institutions as juniors.

PCC also offers a variety of career and technical programs for students who want to earn a two-year degree leading to a career. These include Electrical/Electronics, Carpentry, Welding, Electrical Power Production, Industrial Systems, and more!

Schedules of some classes to be offered have been mailed to households in Person County and Caswell County. The publication also provides important information on PCC’s programs of study and resources for students as well as a schedule of Continuing Education classes.

Complete schedules are available online on PCC’s website at 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, 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.
