The Community College of Allegheny County provides a supportive and transformative learning environment that prepares graduates to meet critical needs in the region’s workforce.
At CCAC, we believe that life outside the classroom is an important part of your college experience. Each CCAC campus has a variety of activities to enhance your lifestyle – including athletics, cultural events and personal development seminars.
The CCAC Educational
Foundation is the fundraising and benefactor arm of the college. It seeks to
create vital connections between the college and the wider community
to ensure the ongoing viability of the college.
Please allow sufficient time for the
evaluation, procurement, license verification and installation
processes. Once software is procured, the ITS staff needs a two week notice to
validate and schedule installation of software in computer labs. Remember that proof
of purchase and/or software licensing agreements will be required.
If the textbook for a course comes with
software or supplementary files (tutorials, data files, examples etc.), please
provide the ISBN# of the Textbook, the Name of the Publisher and the Name
of the Textbook. An ITS team member will contact you if additional information
is required. Keep in mind that software that comes bundled with a book is
usually a user specific license, meaning that the purchaser of the book can
install it on one computer that is accessed only by that person, and usually
can NOT be installed on a computer in a classroom or lab that has multiple
users. Once the licensing has been verified, a ticket will be created for the appropriate
location and you may need to provide the ITS staff member with the CD and the
room location where it will be needed. We need at least one week prior to
utilization of these resources so that it may be installed and tested. We will
determine the best way to implement and notify you so that you can give your
students appropriate instructions.
Files that are common to many sections of a
course may be placed on the coursework folder under a discipline or course
number. Data files that are specific to a particular faculty member (course
outlines, study guides, assignments, etc.) may be placed in the coursework
folder under the discipline and in a folder named for the faculty
member. See information on Coursework storage files.
Programs and/or data files should not be
stored on hard drives on any computers used in classrooms, computer labs,
or other shared student work spaces. If the ITS Department must restore the
hard drive image on a computer, those files will not be part of the restored
image. All students should be instructed to store their files external
and/or cloud storage. The ITS team members are not responsible for any software
or files on classroom or lab computers, placed there by faculty or
