Revenues collected from CAPS fees are used to pay costs of campus security and parking lot rental and maintenance at all Central Piedmont campuses and centers. You will be issued a parking permit for access to Central Piedmont parking lots. With few exceptions, this fee is charged to all students, at all campuses, even if you don't drive to campus. You are not required to pay the CAPS fee if you meet any of the following.
- You are enrolled in fully online classes only. If you enroll in both online classes and in-person classes that meet on Central Piedmont campuses, or in courses that are blended or hybrid (part in-person, part online), you are required to pay the CAPS fee.
- You are a Central Piedmont student enrolled in classes that meet at area high schools or other locations not owned and operated by Central Piedmont. (You will not be issued a parking permit.)
- You are a Central Piedmont student enrolled in classes that have no tuition costs (e.g., Adult High School, English as a Second Language, compensatory education students).
- You are a senior citizen.
If you enroll in for-college-credit courses but drop all your courses prior to the first day of the academic semester, your CAPS fee will be refunded.
