As an open-admissions institution, CCAC does not require college entrance examinations. To enroll as a full-time student, applicants must have a high school diploma or Pennsylvania GED certificate or must be at least 18 years of age with experience reasonably equivalent to a GED.
Health Career Students
Admission to the College does not constitute admission to a health career program. Enrollment in these programs is limited by the availability of clinical sites. If you indicate a preference for one of these limited admission programs, you will be sent complete information on the process you must follow to apply.
In order to be accepted to the Community College of Allegheny County and issued an I-20, international students must complete and submit the international students' application packet. As a reminder, each of the forms can be found on the International Student Forms page. Please contact the Office of International Students for the international application deadlines. An I-20 (application for student visa) will be issued to the student once all documents have been processed. International students must also provide proof of English proficiency.
