The Community College of Allegheny County provides a supportive and transformative learning environment that prepares graduates to meet critical needs in the region’s workforce.
At CCAC, we believe that life outside the classroom is an important part of your college experience. Each CCAC campus has a variety of activities to enhance your lifestyle – including athletics, cultural events and personal development seminars.
The CCAC Educational
Foundation is the fundraising and benefactor arm of the college. It seeks to
create vital connections between the college and the wider community
to ensure the ongoing viability of the college.
The College has an open admissions process, supported by an online system. College Board scores and other entrance examinations are not required. Students are, however, required to take placement tests so that your academic advisor can help you select courses appropriate to your educational goals and background.
Application Process To apply for admission, a prospective student needs to:
See the Dietetic Programs Student Handbook for additional information about the Dietetic Program at CCAC.
Registering for classesAfter review by the program director, prospective students will receive written notification of admission.

Written permission to register for dietetic program courses (courses with a DIT alpha code) must be provided each semester by the program director. This may be completed in person or via mail or email for students in Internet courses.
