Student Support Specialists—Allegheny Campus & Homewood Brushton Center

Academic & Support Referrals

Need help, but not sure where to turn? The Perkins Grant's staff of Student Support Specialists can provide you with information you need and direct you to the proper source for making your experience at CCAC an enjoyable and successful one.

Early Intervention & Mid-Term Reports

If you are having any academic difficulties, as reported by faculty or mid-term grades, the Student Support Specialists will contact you to help get you back on the right track. 

Facilitated Study Groups

Good study skills are vital to your success in college! To assist you, the Student Support Specialists form study groups for interested students. The groups usually meet once a week and provide a great opportunity to learn new study habits. If you are in a class without a study group and would like to have one, contact a Student Support Specialist.


If you need additional support and guidance or if you just want someone to bounce questions, concerns or ideas off of please contact us.
