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

The college issues refunds on approved credit balances on a weekly basis. Students are encouraged to enroll in direct deposit to ensure the quickest and most convenient refund method. Students who do not enroll in direct deposit will be issued a refund check. Checks are mailed to the student's current address on file. Students need to ensure that their address information is up to date each semester to ensure proper delivery.
The college waits 15 calendar days on all check payments
prior to releasing refunds.
The college does not release loan or financial aid refunds prior
to the beginning of the term. Loans and financial aid (grants
and scholarships) will come in two separate checks.
CCAC has implemented electronic refunds enabling students to have certain refunds deposited directly into their bank account, minimizing problems with lost checks, old addresses or waiting for the mail.
Any additional questions concerning refunds may be addressed to
