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.
