At the Community College of Allegheny County, we strive to provide a student-centered learning environment. Our goal is assisting students to develop to their fullest potential and achieve personal success. View our flyer.
Every student deserves the opportunity to succeed. If you are facing the challenge of a physical or cognitive disability - along with the pressures of academic life - you may need some assistance.
