PITTSBURGH—People interested in attending the Community College of Allegheny County (CCAC) still have time to register for the fall term. Registration will remain open through August 20 for 15-week courses beginning August 22. Students must enroll by September 3 for the 13-week “late start” semester with classes beginning September 6.

“People can go to school to pursue their lifelong dreams, change careers and develop new job skills for today’s modern workforce,” said Charles Bostaph, dean of student development at CCAC–Boyce Campus in Monroeville. “There are local jobs available, but you must have up-to-date skills.”

Nationally, almost 40% of the college student population is made up of adults going back to school, compared to 6% in 1980. Another 3.4 million older students are enrolled part-time, many training for new careers or upgrading job skills in the current challenging economic climate.

CCAC offers financial aid packages, career services and job placement assistance. An exceptional value, CCAC saves students $19,000 over two years at public colleges and universities and $47,000 over private institutions.

CCAC–Boyce Campus offers majors in Accounting, Allied Health, Business, Computers, Criminal Justice/Homeland Security, Engineering, Hotel & Restaurant Management, Nursing, Paralegal and many transfer programs. CCAC students have transferred to more than 500 colleges and universities.
