Registration is now open for the spring 2022 semester at Piedmont Community College (PCC). Current degree-seeking students can register for classes anytime by visiting the student portal at www.piedmontcc.edu/self-service. New students interested in enrolling can begin the process by completing the PCC application form and NC Residency Determination at www.piedmontcc.edu/apply. Classes begin January 5.
To provide increased opportunities, the college will also offer a robust array of accelerated eight-week classes, in addition to the traditional 16-week semester. Sixteen-week courses are the traditional length for college classes, but the eight-week course format proves to have many benefits for students.
Dr. Barbara Buchanan, PCC Vice President of Instruction and Chief Academic Officer, explained that, when enrolled in eight-week courses, students will not have to juggle as many classes at once.
“Data shows increased success rates when students can concentrate on fewer subjects in a shorter time frame,” Buchanan said. “Eight-week classes increase entry and exit points for students who need to focus on class schedules around work, childcare, and other challenges.”
To guarantee success for our students inside and outside the classroom, PCC’s Student Development Office provides academic, career, and personal counselling. Students can also receive assistance through other services such as admissions, financial aid, advising, veteran’s services, and financial planning.
Piedmont Community College is a public two-year institution that offers more than 80 programs that lead to an associate degree, diploma, or certificate, and recently provided more than $150,000 to students through scholarships.
PCC provides diverse educational opportunities in a learner-centered environment and serves the citizens of Person and Caswell counties. The College’s mission focuses on transforming lives, strengthening community, and inspiring individuals to excellence.
