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.
It is important to be aware of college policy concerning withdrawal from all or some of your classes. Notifying the instructor of your intention to withdraw does not count as an official withdrawal from a course. You must complete a withdrawal form at the Registration and Advisement office at your campus or college center. Students can download and print this individual form online at Advisement Forms, but must process it at a campus or center. Failure to process this form at the Registration office may result in F grades and have financial consequences.
The following procedures are important to a student's grade
record at the college.
*The specific deadline for withdrawals appears in the
Academic Calendar. Students
should be aware, however, that credits attempted are used to
determine whether they are making satisfactory academic progress
and can affect their eligibility to receive financial aid.
A medical withdrawal is defined as a withdrawal from courses for
medical reasons. While often this results in a withdrawal from all
courses, the director of Supportive Services, in consultation with
the student's physician, may determine a student's ability to
maintain some courses while withdrawing from others (for example, a
student with a broken leg may need to withdraw from a HPE course
but could maintain other courses not requiring physical activity;
or a student may need to withdraw from courses on campus due to a
medical condition but may be able to maintain online learning
Medical withdrawals received before the end of the drop period
will result in a drop of courses (no entry on the student's
transcript). Medical withdrawals received after the drop deadline
until the last day of classes will result in course entries with a
Adjustment of tuition and fees follow the stated dates in the
Request for Medical Withdrawal Form

The college reserves the right to cancel the registration of a
student at any time for just cause. The cause may include poor
academic performance or disruptive behavior. The student has a
right to appeal such dismissal through the appropriate procedures.
These procedures appear in the Student Handbook.
