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.
CCAC offers a priority registration period at the beginning of each registration cycle for the Fall and Spring terms. Course schedule preference is given to: (1) Veterans and their dependents, (2) Honors Students, (3) Current students based on the total number of credits completed to date. For this third category of students, dates are assigned over a five-day period based on total credits in descending priority order (example, students with the greatest number of completed credit register first). Students who are afforded priority registration will receive a notification via email that specifies their priority registration date. Students can register on the date listed on the notice or any day prior to the first class meeting.Ways to Register:
*To enroll online, you must be a returning student who has
completed or placed out of developmental classes and is in good
standing (cumulative GPA greater than 2.0).
Students may register for credit classes until the first class meeting and online courses prior to the start of the term. Registration using CCAC Central is available up until one day before the class begins.For courses that have met (including online courses), students may request the instructor’s documented approval and submit it to the Registration and Advising Office for processing within two business days of signature and before the end of the first week of the term (or first two days of the course term for courses 10 weeks in length or less). Students who are on probation or suspension must also obtain permission from an advisor (probation) or a counselor (suspension).
Students may drop, add, or withdraw in the following ways:
Students receiving financial assistance through grants, loans, and veterans benefits should consult with the Financial Aid or Military and Veterans Service Center before dropping, adding, or withdrawing from class. Students’ aid may be impacted by a change to the total number of credits in which the student is enrolled, or by receiving a W grade in one or more classes.Drop/Add forms sent by mail, email, or fax must be received by close of business before the deadline to drop with either 100% or 80% refund, or the deadline to withdraw. Standardcollege refund procedures will apply. See additional information on Withdrawal Procedures.
