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.
CCAC offers free placement testing on each campus. However,
remote placement testing is available to applicants outside the
geographic region. You may take the Accuplacer Placement Test(s) at
any authorized Remote Accuplacer testing site after signing up for
the test through the CCAC Counseling Office (instructions below).
Remote testing centers typically charge an administration fee
between $20 and $45. The CCAC Counseling Office will determine the
appropriate test package and assist in locating a testing center
where you can take the test.
