Westmoreland County Community College, commonly referred to as WCCC or 3C's, was founded in 1970 and is located in Youngwood, Pennsylvania, USA. In 2009, a new enrollment record was set, with WCCC registering its 7,000th student.
WCCC was founded in 1970, during an era of community college proliferation within the state. Its location on the suburban fringe was designed to attract students from both the Westmoreland County suburbs of Pittsburgh and the Monongahela Valley, then a still booming industrial center. WCCC has also extended its outreach to provide services to students from Fayette, Somerset, Greene, Indiana and Armstrong Counties.
The college has four main buildings: Founders Hall, Commissioners Hall, Business and Industry Center, and Science Hall. Currently, 54 associate degrees, as well as 48 certificate programs are available on-site. An education center was established in New Kensington in 2008 to complement a long active facility in Rostraver Township.
