Overall Experience: As I previously mentioned, the classes were very good. I learned a lot and the professors were very helpful. My favorite class was Intro to Music with Professor Jennings as the class was very passionate about the subject and very lively and the classroom had a very nice ambiance to it.

Overall Experience: CCAC has a lot of recruiters in the front hallways for jobs as well as four-year universities. They are committed to helping students move forward.

Academic Flexibility: This might be the best technical feature of the school. There are multiple different class sections at multiple times, and a majority of them are offered online. This is very helpful to me because I am not in a position to get to class right now in the way a standard four-year college might expect me to do.

Online Courses: The online courses were pretty good. The best online courses I took were Financial Accounting and Business Calculus, which deferred to different software that gave me a detailed, rigorous learning experience.

Academic Experience: The curriculum at CCAC is very diverse, but easily transferrable, which was the most important point for me going into it. I did not initially have the resources to spend on four years at a university, so CCAC is a nice stepping stone until my junior year, and their curriculum is challenging but interesting, and I have the sense that the staff is pointing me in the right direction.

Overall Experience: So far, I would have to say that CCAC has been a pretty great institution for me, especially at the Boyce campus. The campus layout was nice, the classes were extremely informative as well as moderately challenging, and the staff was very helpful in multiple ways from registration to skill set placement to transfer opportunities. My favorite class was the Introduction to Music class taught by Professor Jennings. I have always loved the studies of all kinds of music, and it was nice to learn from a professor who always showed that passion in the classroom. Overall, CCAC has been really good to me.

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.
