Community college of Allegheny county is a decent school. The teachers are mostly good so far and do try to work with you. The main issue is having to stay on top of things yourself because advising (especially transfer advising) is challenging to get and not always the most helpful when you do get it.
The zoom feature has been handled very well by all my professors, and communication with courses that don't require zoom is amazing. I have been able to easily register all my required classes and find assistance when needed. CCAC has an amazing staff that helps students navigate the system if needed, and the IT department consistently updates students on when the system will be getting changes.
I have had an amazing time with CCAC, and have found the professors to be very good at their job. The self service feature is very user friendly and blackboard makes it easy to navigate courses. I would like to get notified when teachers grade assignments, but that is my only gripe about the system.
I am currently taking Human Growth and Development online over the summer to lighten my course load for the fall when I start nursing at CCAC. I am learning a lot and my professor is great about answering any questions I have.
I like that the Community College of Allegheny County is easy to get to, all of my professors have been very prompt to answer any questions I have, as well as being informative and learning a lot.
I decided to go back to school during the Pandemic because I decided I needed to change some things in my career. The Staff there is so attentive and quick and to respond to any questions I have had. I am doing all online courses, and I feel like I have learned so much and it's only been one semester!
I learnt a lot in the sessions online. I took 4 courses, three of which were exceptional. I didn't know I could do it, but my professors made sure we all passed.
So far it's been a good institution. The school's relationship between faculty and students is great. I'd change nothing and I love CCAC!
All of my classes were online for the Fall 2020 semester. Many of the older instructors struggled with this adjustment and may have benefitted from more training on distance learning.
Despite the pandemic, my school has been great. I feel safe with the choices they have made and the options for remote learning. I have had nothing but amazing teachers. I attend the Boyce Campus and it is in a great location not far from Boyce Park.
SO far my learning experience has been great and it is much more affordable than other schools. My program is great and I have all the confidence I will find a job as soon as I graduate.
It's affordable, and they worked with me to get my prerequisites for grad school completed in time. They responded to the pandemic as well as any school.
They responded to COVID-19 as well as any school. I was grateful to be able to complete my classes around my new work schedule and from the safety of my own home, though that was not the original plan.
Taking classes in a hybrid setting is difficult, but the college uses the platform Blackboard which is relatively easy to figure out.
Nice programs, straight forward classes as well as affordable tuition. There are a lot of opportunities with student funds as well as student programs in order to stay engaged with the school.
My online experience was good mostly because I already had experience with the last few months of my senior year. Some professors are trying to learn how to get access to online websites, but a lot of them know what they are doing.
CCAC is a good community college for numerous reasons. To start it has a lot of diversity to it which I think is phenomenal. I have had the opportunity to meet a lot of unique individuals and learn so much from them. Secondly CCAC offers you an opportunity to save so much money by taking their courses at such an affordable price. I always say it, if I had to go back and do it all over again, I absolutely would choose CCAC over a 4 yr institute any day! They even offer payment plans to help you cut down the cost of the semester tuition even more! Thirdly, they have professors who have worked in their field of study for years so they really know the course and the best way to help a student learn the material and enjoy what they are learning. Overall CCAC offers a variety of opportunities for a student to take advantage of that is worth their while.
