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.
Office 365 Education is a plan that's available to students who
are currently attending an academic institution. The service is
being offered free of charge to all CCAC students and will enable
you to download and install the latest version of Microsoft Office
up to five times on multiple devices. This agreement is made
between Microsoft and CCAC students. CCAC can assist with some
questions but does not determine eligibility, use of the plan or
licensing structure. This is determined through Microsoft.
Upon installing Office 365, you will have access to full
versions of Word, Excel, PowerPoint, Outlook, OneNote and more,
plus 1 TB of free storage on OneDrive. You can install Office up to
5 times on any PC or Mac. It's available for free to students who
are currently attending CCAC.

enter a reduced functionality mode, which means documents can be
viewed but it isn't possible to edit or create new documents. In
addition, online services associated with the school email address,
for example Office Online and OneDrive, will no longer work.
