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.
Students must obtain a NetID account. Your CCAC NetID and password identify you to the CCAC network and allow you to access a variety of resources and services. NetID creation is available upon registering for courses at CCAC. Student academic email is available on the day after your NetID is created. Having a NetID allows you to log on to the CCAC network from any campus PC, to utilize local PC software, resources and files necessary for some of your coursework. Without a NetID, you cannot log-in or use any campus PC or CCAC network resources. Most CCAC applications are web-based, (MyCCAC Portal, Blackboard, Academic Email, CCAC Central, etc.) and may be accessed on your home computer or mobile device as long as you have an internet connection.
