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.
Free tutoring services are offered through the LLS (Library and Learning Services) departments at Allegheny, Boyce, North and South campuses. These services are for CCAC students taking credit courses. Both in-house (face-to-face) and online tutoring services are available regardless of where in the system students take their courses. To get further information on individual campus in-house tutoring services, please call the campus numbers listed below.
Each campus provides slightly different in-house services in terms of hours of operation, courses for which tutoring help is offered, workshop availability and procedures for making appointments.
Centers: Students who are interested in tutoring services should contact the learning centers at the appropriate campus.
Please note all schedules are subject to change.
Ten hours of free online tutoring per semester is offered to all CCAC students and will be particularly useful for students who are not able to use the in-house facilities. Through our partnership with SMARTHINKING, CCAC is able to offer live tutoring anytime, from anywhere. Students will receive real-time assistance in math, chemistry, bilingual math, physics, organic chemistry, biology, intro to anatomy and physiology, economics, introductory finance, accounting and statistics. Writing support for all subjects is also provided through the online writing lab.
