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.
To help meet the need for skilled interpreting professionals,
the Community Training and Development Division of Community
College of Allegheny County has developed a new, 175 hour
intensified program of interpreter preparation. This non-credit program differs from CCAC’s Interpreting (915.1) Associate of Science 60-61 credit program. See details at American Sign Language–Interpreting (915.1).
This nontraditional approach to interpreter education is ideal
for individuals who have intermediate level ASL skills, and who
already possess a degree (associates or above) in any field. It is
also appropriate for working interpreters who currently lack
sufficient opportunities for continued professional
Important facts about the new CCAC Interpreting Skill
