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.
A Network Account is required for accessing any CCAC Network Resources. Acquiring a Network Account allows you to log-in to the CCAC network from any campus PC, use local PC software and resources, and access remote data on the network for collaboration. Without a Network Account, you cannot log-in or use any campus PC or any CCAC Network Resources.
Everyone using the network should be aware of the CCAC policies regarding network access. ITS: Guidelines and Standards.
This one login ID and password are used to access:
The supervisor must email a Network Account Request form request to appropriate ITS personnel with the following new employee information:
When you click on the Network Account Request Form link above, a form for you to complete will display. Please complete all of the information before submitting. Upon clicking submit, the form will be routed to the ITS ServiceDesk.
Guest accounts and temporary accounts are available only on a limited basis. See Network Account Procedures.
All requests for changes and deactivations must go through the Human Resources department. If an employee is leaving your department, you can discuss your needs with the HR staff to determine the best way to set delegate access and maintain business continuity. Human Resources staff will initiate change requests with the ITS department.
How long does an Employee Account remain active?
Employee accounts will remain active for the length of employment at CCAC. Accounts will be suspended or deactivated by Human Resources when an employee leaves the college or is on leave. Human Resources will also deactivate accounts for Adjunct Faculty who have not been employed for a period greater than one year.
Once you receive your network username and initial password, you will reset your password to one that you can remember. Keep your passwords private; this plays an important role in keeping CCAC information assets secure. See passwords and password change procedures.
