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.
Federal Student Aid is something to consider in conjunction with
your GI Bill®. This can be done by completing a Free Application
for Student Aid (FAFSA). Many students think that this
isn't necessary because they have GI
Bill® benefits, but there are grants and
scholarships available which don't need to be paid back and
don't go against the VA Education Benefits. Grants are need-based
awards determined by income and cost of living.

The following list only represents some of the more commonly
