The Community College of Allegheny County is about students learning from expert faculty in a learning-centered environment. It’s about a full campus life that includes athletics, social organizations, honor societies, service clubs, student services, the Honors Program and more. It’s about choice—more than 155 programs that lead to great careers and great four-year colleges. It’s about convenience—four campuses, four neighborhood centers and flexible schedules, including online courses. Quality college education at an affordable price—that is what CCAC is all about.
Why should I choose CCAC?
It’s no wonder CCAC is the number one choice of high school graduates and the largest provider of educational services in western Pennsylvania. CCAC has more credit and noncredit students each semester than the universities of Pittsburgh, Carnegie Mellon, Robert Morris and Duquesne combined. Every year, thousands of students transfer CCAC credits to the four-year college of their choice.
The college continues to benefit the region in multiple ways. More than 95% of CCAC graduates live and work locally. The college raised more than $26 million in public and private grants in 2011–2012, directly benefiting students and the region. What’s more, 44% of CCAC students report they could not have attended college without CCAC. That is why CCAC is proud to be The first choice for faster results.
