CCAC expands weekend, evening classes to reach more students

The Community College of Allegheny County is hoping to reach more students by expanding its evening, weekend and online class offerings.

CCAC said in a news release the changes are designed to be more flexible for students who may be working or busy with families.

Students also can receive online tutoring, class scheduling and instructor-led discussions in addition to face-to-face help.

Some certificate programs can be completed in a few semesters and are available in a variety of program areas for students who want to upgrade their skills or pursue a new passion. Weekend and evening offerings for certificates include accounting, paralegal, medical insurance, barber and computer forensics programs, among others.

Associate programs that can be completed on weekends or evenings include respiratory therapy, tourism management and radiologic technologist programs.

TribLIVE commenting policy

You are solely responsible for your comments and by using you agree to our Terms of Service.

We moderate comments. Our goal is to provide substantive commentary for a general readership. By screening submissions, we provide a space where readers can share intelligent and informed commentary that enhances the quality of our news and information.

While most comments will be posted if they are on-topic and not abusive, moderating decisions are subjective. We will make them as carefully and consistently as we can. Because of the volume of reader comments, we cannot review individual moderation decisions with readers.

We value thoughtful comments representing a range of views that make their point quickly and politely. We make an effort to protect discussions from repeated comments either by the same reader or different readers

We follow the same standards for taste as the daily newspaper. A few things we won't tolerate: personal attacks, obscenity, vulgarity, profanity (including expletives and letters followed by dashes), commercial promotion, impersonations, incoherence, proselytizing and SHOUTING. Don't include URLs to Web sites.

We do not edit comments. They are either approved or deleted. We reserve the right to edit a comment that is quoted or excerpted in an article. In this case, we may fix spelling and punctuation.

We welcome strong opinions and criticism of our work, but we don't want comments to become bogged down with discussions of our policies and we will moderate accordingly.

We appreciate it when readers and people quoted in articles or blog posts point out errors of fact or emphasis and will investigate all assertions. But these suggestions should be sent via e-mail. To avoid distracting other readers, we won't publish comments that suggest a correction. Instead, corrections will be made in a blog post or in an article.
