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.
Pennsylvania's new Right-to-Know Law took effect January 1, 2009. The law concerns public access to records at public institutions and government agencies. The most significant change is that the burden of proof is now on the institution or agency to show why a record should not be released; there are 31 categories of records exempted under this law. The new law does not overrule existing laws such as FERPA (the Buckley Amendment) that limit access to certain records.Also, while many community colleges (including CCAC) have followed the spirit of the law in the past, they are explicitly required to comply with the new Right-to-Know Law.
What does this mean for you? You should know some of the most important provisions of the law before submitting a request.
