If you are ready to advance your career with a degree, diploma, or nationally recognized credentials, now is your chance to register for Fall classes at Piedmont Community College (PCC). With programs in healthcare, IT (information technology), criminal justice, early childhood, welding, cosmetology, human services, business and accounting, gunsmithing, digital animation, mechatronics, agribusiness, teacher preparation, and university transfer, PCC has something for everyone. 

PCC team members are standing by to help you apply, register, and complete important financial aid information to help you get started. Offices are open: Monday – Thursday, 8 a.m. – 5 p.m. and Friday, 8 a.m. – 4 p.m. this week, then open until 8 p.m. after August 8. 

Free Resources: 

To guarantee success for 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. In addition, students have free access to computer labs, supplemental instruction, and in-person or online tutoring. 

Class Format Options: 

Select from face-to-face, online, or a mixture of both with hybrid courses offered throughout the year. This makes it easy for students to find the right fit for their busy schedule, especially with programs that are fully online, including: Human Services, University Transfer, Public Service Administration, Early Childhood, Business Administration, and Accounting and Finance. 

Need more options? PCC offers 8- and 16-week classes, allowing students to concentrate on a few courses in a shorter timeframe while still completing a full-load each semester. This also assists students who need to adapt their class schedules around work and childcare to reduce their daily stress. 

“PCC continues to update course lengths and course formats to ensure our students have the best chance for success,” said Dr. David Townsend, Dean of University Transfer and General Education. “For example, you could take Algebra for the full 16 weeks, English 111 and General Psychology in the first 8 weeks, then take English 112 in the second 8 weeks so the classes relate to each other but you’re only taking two to three classes at a time.” 

“This would allow students to have a better focus and more control, while completing the courses in less time.” 

PCC’s fall semester starts Monday, August 15, with other short-term certification opportunities available through December. Prospective students can apply to begin their associate degree at  www.piedmontcc.edu/apply  and students seeking short-term certification can find monthly opportunities at  www.piedmontcc.edu/workforce-development
