Overall Experience: The reason, I believe, my school is great is because the friendliness of staff and students. Also, another huge factor on why my school is one of the best, is that it is not expensive for someone who is looking to transfer out and get the highest level of education. The reason why I did not rate it as being "the best" because teachers do not give you a course guide on what you need for that particular class, for example books. You would think something as getting the necessary books, would usually be a key topic to discuss. Besides not knowing what certain materials one would need for a class, I believe CCAC is a great school.

Overall Experience: Its not a bad place just doesnt feel like a good time

5 College Junior

Overall Experience: There are so many tutoring opportunities available, every professor I have had acknowledges my hard work, there are several local branches and the classes are small which allows for questions or concerns.

3 College Senior

Overall Experience: I like how flexible the class schedules are. You can take online classes basically your whole time there to receive your degree. Therefore, it is a great choice for those that work full time or can't have their entire life be school. The only thing I hate is I don't really actually learn anything because it's easy to get by without doing so and the lack of help from advisors.

Overall Experience: My overall experience at this school has been great. If I could redo anything, it would be that this would have been the first college that I attended. I feel like I would have gotten more out of college that way. The fact that I can say that I love my professors and have learned a lot should mean something. This school is unique to me because the students actually mean something to their professors and aren't just a number in their classroom like they can be in other schools. The classes I have been, the professors have gotten to know me on a personal level and I feel that has helped a lot with my final grade in the class. It makes me want to work harder in my classes when I know that the professor actually cares about our grades and how we are doing.

Academic Flexibility: My classes work with my schedule and are pretty reasonable. Transferring my credits was an easy process.

4 College Junior

Overall Experience: The courses have been very informative and helpful. The professors know what they are teaching and always willing to help a student with any problems they might be having. There a lot of classes offered and sometimes its hard to choose because so many seem so interesting. The class sizes are small and I feel like makes it more personal and easier to learn.

Online Courses: All the classes for my major have been online by the same professor and they have been the best classes I have ever taken. I have enjoyed them so much! I have ADHD and struggle to pay attention in a traditional classroom setting but online classes are a lot easier for me to participate in. The workload wasn't a lot to me. I developed a great professor/student relationship and I was able to go to him with any questions or random thoughts about the class. This past semester he even made me his assistant. I have learned so much in my online classes that will help me out a lot once I graduate.

Student Body: I also loved small schools over big ones. It's nice that there aren't so many students here. There are many different diversities at this school which I feel is good. In your classes you could have anyone in your class ranging from handicapped to bisexual to black to Indian. It taught me a lot and I'm grateful for the different diversities around. I can't just describe a typical student because everyone there is unique in their own way. There isn't a typical student there.

Tuition & Financial Aid: I thought the tuition was very affordable. I definitely feel like I am learning something and will remember it once I make it out into the real world to work. The financial aid office has been very helpful. Compared to the other schools I have had to deal with, this school is a lot easier to deal with when it comes to financial aid.

5 College Junior

Academic Experience: I love my major and everything involved with it. I have been given the opportunity to get out into the community and help people which is what I love to do. I have had the same professor for almost all my classes from freshman year till senior year in my major classes and that makes my classes so much easier. The workload is not a lot and and I really enjoy the homework that we are given.

4 College Junior

Academic Experience: My school is rather small and I don't really know everything that is offered. I do know that they have a wide vareity of academics available. The professors are great and I have loved all of them! Tutoring is available but hard to sign up for.

4 College Junior

Campus Resources: I haven't experienced a lot of different centers on campus. I am just really busy with school work and other activities going on that I don't have the time. The people that I have come in contact with are very helpful and are always available if you have any questions. I never really have any problems going to anyone with questions for help.

3 College Sophomore

Academic Experience: The professors at CCAC are amazing. I have had some great experiences taking even basic classes. The curriculum is great and prepares us for more difficult topics and courses. The registration process could be fine tuned. It is definitely a downfall of CCAC.

Overall ExperienceWhat's this?

View student contributors
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.
