About Our College
The Pennsylvania legislature passed the Community College Act in 1963 and officials in Allegheny County began the process of creating a local community college. Residents of the county voted in favor of funding the project in May 1965 and the first 15-member Board of Trustees was sworn in that December. The college opened Boyce Campus, in Monroeville, and Allegheny Campus, on Pittsburgh's North Side, in 1966. The following year, South Campus was opened; North Campus opened in 1972. The college also has centers, beyond the main campuses, that offer classes.
