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.
Community College of Allegheny County has been
accredited by the Middle States Commission on Higher Education since 1970. “The
Middle States Commission on Higher Education is a voluntary, non-governmental,
membership association that is dedicated to quality assurance and improvement
through accreditation via peer evaluation. Middle States accreditation instills
public confidence in institutional mission, goals, performance, and resources

In November of 2011 MSCHE accepted CCAC’s
Periodic Review Report, reaffirmed accreditation, and commended CCAC for
progress to date and for the quality of the report. CCAC’s next Self-Study
Evaluation is scheduled for 2016 – 2017.
