Online Courses: dont really know anything about online I take classes online

3 Recent Alumnus

Academic Experience: all advisers who sign up students for classes whether credit or non-credit courses need to be on the same page

3 Recent Alumnus

Tuition & Financial Aid: wish that when our tuition changes or financial aid hits a ruff path they would let students know

3 Recent Alumnus

Campus Resources: not everything is out in the open as they would like to make it seem

3 Recent Alumnus

Career Services: I love the campus and enjoy the people I think there is a little more work needed on who they hire and interviews need to be more intact because some of those professors do not need to be teaching and other need to be teaching in the field in which they received their degrees in and not accept any position

3 College Senior

Tuition & Financial Aid: The deadlines for financial aid are unreasonable. I applied weeks before registration and was told the deadline was months before. Federal aid criteria is ridiculous...you have to be destitute to qualify. The small amount of state aid that I could be eligible for, I cannot get because you have to apply for the following semester BEFORE you are even finished with your current semester.

3 College Senior

Student Body: There is a lot of diversity in the classrooms that I have been in.

3 College Senior

Campus Resources: Because I am working and going to school, I don't have much opportunity to hang around the facilities except to attend classes. I wish I had more time to take advantage of all the extra curricular activities going on in the campus

College Senior

Career Services: I haven't had much interaction on this subject. I understand that they have opportunities, but I am beginning my 2nd year of associates degree and will probably look into this a little further this year.

3 College Senior

Academic Flexibility: There should be more discussions about what is non-transferrable. After taking a course and paying the tuition to find out that it is non-transferrable is aggravating

3 College Senior

Overall Experience: There are certain subjects that are easier to learn in the physical location of a classroom and others that I feel work well online. The courses that I wish to take are not always available at my location but at least they can be offered online as an option.

3 College Senior

Overall Experience: There are mixed results from the people that I have talked to. Some have found job opportunities easily, but others have had to take positions outside of their degree. That could just be the economy and what is in demand at this time.

4 College Senior

Online Courses: It allows me to work at my own pace while I work a part-time job. I like that the teachers are accessible via e-mail and that my grades are posted online as well.

5 College Junior

Overall Experience: I got a degree in BSW already and loved every minute cant wait to transfer back to PITT and further my education.

4 College Junior

Campus Resources: Used a lot of resources, writing center, advisor, library, and labs-all great and accessible at all hours.

3 College Junior

Career Services: I struggled to find employment with my first degree. Hopefully more doors will open with the second degree. Pitt does have current job listings on most major's web pages.

4 College Junior

Academic Flexibility: Offer classes for working full time or part time. Was very flexible.

4 College Junior

Student Body: Classes are full of different backgrounds which makes for very interesting class discussions.

4 College Junior

Academic Experience: work and school is all in one.

4 College Junior

Academic Experience: A lot to learn on campus

4 College Junior

Tuition & Financial Aid: Very easy to communicate with.

College Junior

Online Courses: Never taken an online course

4 College Junior

Overall Experience: Class sizes are great and professors are proactive easy to talk with.

4 College Junior

Overall Experience: Internship opportunity was more than I expected.

3 College Sophomore

Tuition & Financial Aid: Didn't get any financial aid very disappointed and the school had a "glitch" and tried to charge me an extra $800.

Overall, taking classes at CCAC has been a positive experience. Students have the opportunity to choose the classes they need to take for their degree with great flexibility. Since CCAC offers both day and night classes, it's a very welcome approach to college life. The campus offers a pretty good education, with instructors teaching at other major universities in Pittsburgh, too. It is quite a convenient balance between tuition and the quality of education. Most programs offered by CCAC target sought-after careers through a large variety of majors or courses required for either transfers to four-year colleges or toward an associate degree. CCAC offers career orientation and advising through its Placement and Career Services, to make sure students are on the right career track. All in all, many would choose this school again if given the chance because it fits the needs of returning students and combines academic flexibility with a great variety of courses at an affordable rate. Class size favors interaction between teachers and students, so by the end of the semester, teachers get to know students’ names. Since a lot of students take night classes, student interaction is usually facilitated through clubs and student organizations that foster socialization, hobbies, and even volunteering for community causes. A lot of students declare themselves content to be Phi Theta Kappa members or even enjoy the activities CCAC organizes to bring students together, like picnics, nature outings, or discount tickets to shows, theater, or sports events.
