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.
Set among 212 rolling acres in West Mifflin, CCAC's South Campus

years, house lecture halls, traditional classrooms, technology
rooms, a learning assistance center, full library, theater, radio

campus has a library, learning assistance center, media center,
