    Press Release

    PITTSBURGH-The Community College of Allegheny County (CCAC) South campus will host information sessions throughout the spring about the college and its programs. The sessions feature discussion of the steps to enroll at CCAC, including the admissions application, financial aid, placement testing, academic advising, registration and payment options.

    CCAC staff will provide an overview of CCAC career programs that prepare graduates to enter the workforce after just two years-or even less than six months. Those attending the information sessions can also learn about options for transferring to bachelor's degree programs at other institutions after starting at CCAC, a step that can save students $46,000 over two years.

    In addition, session participants will learn about opportunities and activities offered by the CCAC Student Life department.

    The sessions are meant to be interactive, with ample time for questions and answers. The events are free and open to high school students as well as adult learners looking to acquire new skills.

    To register, visit Appointment Central or call 412.469.6480.
