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.
There are three levels
of wireless access at CCAC locations:
1. CCACwireless: ITS strongly recommends that CCAC community
members (students, faculty and staff) use this secure level of access.
CCACwireless uses strong encryption that serves to protect your information
from unauthorized interception and viewing. A valid CCAC e-mail username and
password (based on NetID or employee network account) will be required
to connect. ITS still recommends caution with transmitting personal and
financial data over a wireless network.If you need help accessing CCACwireless, download the detailed instructions for your operating system below.
Separate instructions for Android and iOS devices.
Having problems accessing the wireless? Download these
instructions for additional troubleshooting steps.
Please be advised that wireless access points (or
"hotspots") are strategically located throughout the campuses. Any
number of factors may influence your ability to access the wireless system. You
should exercise caution when performing critical tasks--such as taking an
online exam--over a wireless network. For best results, we recommend you
disconnect from wireless when you leave the area of the campus and reconnect
when you return.
Other operating systems or devices might be able to successfully connect to CCACwireless, but operating systems not listed above or declared end of life are not supported. Assistance will be provided on a best effort basis. A device must support WPA-2 wireless security protocol in order to connect to CCACwireless.SSID.
Using Other Vendors for Wireless Connections? Users should attempt to replicate the settings contained in our instructions (Network Authentication = WPA-2, Data Encryption = AES, EAP Type = PEAP).
Guest accounts may be available to allow a faculty or staff member to request a temporary account for guests they are sponsoring (such as vendors demonstrating software or other people doing temporary business with the college) who need to connect their own computer to the CCAC network. If you are the guest of a faculty or staff member and need a network account, speak with them about requesting a Guest account from ITS.
