3 College Junior

Online Courses: I really enjoyed the fact that I could do everything I needed to from my bed. However, I completed every assignment before the first day of class even began and I passed as soon as those assignments were complete. It just felt like a waste of money because it was so simple and there was nothing substantial to the course.

2 College Junior

Career Services: I went to career services when I was unsure about what degree I wanted to pursue. I was given a career placement test (what field would be best for me dependent upon my answers) and both degrees I was between were the top 2 choices. I was told there was nothing more they could do to help me decide and I just needed to pick something to study or take the year off and figure it out. That isn't exactly a luxury I could afford.

3 College Junior

Overall Experience: While I was at Boyce, I was given a clinical site that was an hour (one way) from home. I had to get up at 4 am just to get to clinical on time each week. Then they wanted us to go back there the next semester for a 10 hour clinical beginning at 2 and ending at midnight. I was afraid to drive home because I was exhausted. They never take the student's location into consideration when deciding clinical sites, and they tell us we aren't even allowed to ask for a change in site.

4 College Junior

Overall Experience: My mom graduated with an associate's and is a manager at her facility. Most places want at least a bachelor's for management, but she's so qualified her degree doesn't matter.

2 College Junior

Academic Experience: Nursing is a hard major in general, but most of these teachers don't take into consideration that you have other things going on in your life. I can't even count the number of people that had to drop out because the school couldn't accommodate for family matters. Try to make sure everything is in order before you apply and hope that nothing major comes up over the next 2-3 years.

4 College Junior

Overall Experience: Overall, the college is nice. I liked being at both South and Boyce campuses. The teachers could be more helpful, but overall having an affordable college close to home that I don't have to pay additional for housing is pretty nice.

Overall Experience: I'm having a very good experience thus far.

4 College Sophomore

Academic Flexibility: My plan from the start was to attend CCAC, take as many general education courses as I need, and transfer after 2 years. I am finishing my 2 years with more than 30 credits, that all will be transferring to my desired college. Even classes were I received a D still transfer as a General Elective.

3 College Sophomore

Online Courses: In many cases, students usually take an online course because they do not have as much time to take a regular college course in a classroom because of reasons such a their job or maybe an internship. Some teachers of online courses seem to forget the nature of an online course, and like to pile on the workload where it is not necessary. I find myself stressing more about my online class than I ever did with any of my regular classroom courses.

3 College Sophomore

Overall Experience: Being that I was there for my gen. ed. credits, I took many different classes and experienced many different professors. For the most part, there were only 2 teachers I was not that fond of, the rest I really got along with and felt they wanted to help me do well. Class size was usually a fair amount of students, ranging from about 15 - 30 students. There is such a wide variety of courses you can take a CCAC, so if you are unsure what you want to do and want to save money, this is the perfect place for you.

3 College Sophomore

Overall Experience: I don't think the school holds any value in the degree. No matter what school you attend, if you put in the work and learn as much as you can about your desired career prospect, you will give your degree a value.

3 College Sophomore

Overall Experience: Most of the professors I encountered were very easy to get along with and seemed to want to have a relationship with their students. Because it is a Community College, everything is very familiar and it is a great balance in between high school and a real university. I also saved thousands of dollars and went there for free because of financial aid.

4 College Freshman

Online Courses: Online classes offer for convenience and allow students to work and also complete various homework assignments' go through topics, ect.

3 College Freshman

Career Services: I have yet to experience the post-grad services.

5 College Freshman

Overall Experience: The professors are very well educated and can relate to information they are teaching the students. The professors have prior experience in the subjects they teach and that allows students to learn the information through many different ways.

Overall ExperienceWhat's this?

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.
