Changes to Logic

Add a Confirmation Pop-Up Box to the "No Permanent Address - Homeless" for Homeless Youth

NOTE:  Per feedback from colleges, a growing number of applicants are not providing their permanent address when they are creating their OpenCCC Accounts. Unfortunately, many colleges are finding that a good number of these students are not being truthful and rather than providing the required information they are selecting the "I have no permanent address because I am currently homeless" checkbox.

Although CCCApply can't determine if a student is being dishonest, we can require the user who claims they have no permanent address because they are homeless confirm their response (or lack of response) by requiring them to confirm their response by responding with Yes or No to a Confirmation validation box. 

 Add validation to <no_perm_address_homeless> field:
IF checkbox is not empty (student answers Yes/True) THEN display a confirmation validation box and require a Yes or No response. 

No change to downloads.


N/A
Add Additional Onscreen Text to "No Permanent Address - Homeless" Checkbox for International students.

At the time a new user applies to a California Community College through CCCApply they must first create an OpenCCC Account before selecting an application for admission (CCCApply Standard or International Applications). At this point in the Account creation process, the system may not know which application the user will select; therefore we cannot remove the "No Permanent Address - Homeless" checkbox from displaying to international students.

To inform potential international applicants, the following onscreen text was added below the "No Permanent Address Homeless" checkbox:  International, F1, M1 or J1 students MUST provide a permanent address.

N/AN/A
Add Validation: If user's Permanent Address if Outside US Then Do Not Display the "No Permanent Address - Homeless" CheckboxValidation was added to prevent international applicants from checking the "No Permanent Address - Homeless" checkbox.
Condition:  If user selects "Yes/True" to "My permanent address is outside the United States" - THEN, DO NOT display the <no_perm_address_homeless> checkbox.
N/AN/A
Update Additional Text in the Preferred Name Question

Per the CCCApply Steering Committee the "additional question text" that displays for the Preferred Name question was revised in Account Creation FROM: "Note: Not all colleges may allow the use of preferred first names for academic purposes due to legal or technical restriction.”

TO: "Please contact your college for more information on how a preferred name may or may not be used at their institution."

Note: The additional text is only implemented in Create Account and doesn't appear in Edit account (once the initial toggle is selected to enter a Preferred Name, the additional text does not appear again to the end user.)

N/AN/A
Add Confirmation Field to Date of Birth Question to Minimize Incorrect Birthdates Entered to OpenCCC

The three primary fields used in the Account Matching and Verification service are:
1) Date of Birth <Birthdate>
2) Social Security Number <SSN>
3) Email Address <email>

Each of these fields are used multiple times in the matching algorithm. Therefore, to help prevent duplicate accounts from being created, we added a "Confirm Date of Birth" field to the Account Creation process. This is similar to the confirmation field used in the Social Security Number/Taxpayer Identification Number question.

NOTE: This confirmation field is not an additional download field; only one value for <birthdate> will be stored in the database.

CCCApply Standard Application

Below is a summary of the enhancements deployed to the Standard Application in this release (6.1.0).

Description / Summary

Change to Logic

Remove Homeless Youth Logic from Area B Residency Algorithm

Per feedback from the CCCApply Steering Committee, the logic added to the Area B Residency table in March 2017 to identify homeless applicants under age 25 was removed to help minimize the number of California students being determined "Possible Residents" based on temporary homelessness.  
The Area B logic was reverted back to pre-6.0.0 logic - before AB801 logic was added.

NOTE: If the student doesn't provide a Permanent Address in their OpenCCC Account, the residency logic identifies their "State" as not California, which is triggering Flag 02 - which is telling the logic that the student should supply further proof of residency (B2 - Possible Resident).  The logic change made in this release is simply ensuring that the applicant isn't being classified as a "possible resident" just because they answered Yes to the homeless_youth question and are under 25. 

N/A

Removed Step 12 from Area B Logic in Standard App only. See "Changes to Logic" section below for more details..

Update Homeless Youth Question with Conditional Logic & Error Validations

Changes were made to the Homeless Youth data field question <homeless_youth> to better identify homeless applicants under age 25.  The logic that was removed from Area B Residency algorithm (see above) and moved to this field to remove any dependency on the residency status. In addition, the following new conditions and validations were added to <homeless_youth> data field:

1) If <homeless_youth> = Yes/True, THEN trigger integrity flag (40) <integrity_fg_40> alerting admissions that the student has been homeless within the past 24 months. 

2) Must be "Yes/True" if <no_perm_address_homeless> = Yes/True, else error message, "We found a conflict in your responses. You must provide a Permanent Address or select "yes" to indicate that you have been homeless within the last 24 months."

3) Must be "Yes/True" if <no_mailing_address_homeless> = Yes/True, else error message, "We found a conflict in your responses.You must provide a Current Mailing Address or select "yes" to indicate that you have been homeless within the last 24 months."

N/A

See "Changes to Logic" below for more details.

Add Validation: If user's Current Mailing Address if Outside US Then Do Not Display "No Current Mailing - Homeless" CheckboxValidation was added to prevent international applicants from checking the "No Current Mailing Address - Homeless" checkbox.
Condition:  If user selects "Yes/True" to "My current mailing address is outside the United States" - THEN, DO NOT display the <no_mailing_address_homeless> checkbox.
N/AN/A
Added Confirmation Validation Popup Box if "No Current Mailing Address - Homeless" is YES

NOTE:  Per feedback from colleges, a growing number of applicants are not being truthful and choosing to say they have "no mailing address because they are currently homeless" rather than being honest and providing the required information. A number of validations have been put in place to thwart this behavior including displaying a confirmation validation pop-up box asking the applicant to confirm they have no mailing address because they are homeless. There may be little that can be done to ensure applicants tell the truth, however if they are going to be dishonest, we want them to confirm their answer twice.

Add validation to <no_mailing_address_homeless> field: IF checkbox is not empty (Yes/True) THEN display confirmation pop-up message and require a Yes or No response. 

N/AN/A
If Visa Type is F1, M1 or J1, "No Permanent Address Homeless" Must be NO

A validation was added to ensure international students provide all required information, including their Permanent Address.  Therefore, if the applicant selects F1, M1, or J1 from the visa type field, then they must have a permanent address entered in their OpenCCC Account. 

Add validation to <visa_type> on Citizenship/Military page:
"IF <visa_type> is F1, M1, or J1, THEN <no_perm_address_homeless> must be empty (No/False), else error message, "We found a conflict in your responses. F1, M1, or J1 student visa holders, must provide a permanent address in order to submit this application. Please enter your permanent address by editing your OpenCCC Account on the Account Information section."

N/AN/A
Layout Change to the Enrollment Page:
Swap the position of the Intended Major input field and the Education Goal Drop-down Menu

Meta Majors/Ed Goal Alignment Phase I: In preparation for the ability to filter your custom list of Intended Majors or Programs of Study by a custom category, meta majors, term, and/or by education goal, it was necessary to swap the position of the Education Goal menu and the Intended Major menu. 

NOTE: This was just the layout (user-interface) change at this time. The actual data filter implementation will be available in the new CCC Administrator tool, coming in March 2018.

N/AN/A
Implement User-Friendly Format Widget & New International Main Phone & Second Phone Data Fields to Capture International Phone Numbers


Implemented a new, user-friendly formatting widget to the Main Phone & Second Phone fields in the Standard Application and the BOG Fee Waiver Application that ensures international phone numbers are formatted correctly and consistently for their corresponding country codes. In order to download international phone numbers using this new widget, two new data fields were added to the database: mainphoneintl and secondphoneintl.

NOTE: The international phone number format widget was not added to the Supplemental Questions module at this time.

Two new data fields were created to capture and download international numbers:

<mainphoneintl>
<secondphoneintl>

See Change to Data Downloads section below for instructions on adding these new fields to your Download files.

N/A
Do Not Display "Attended HS in CA for 3 years" Question on Education Page if User Didn't Graduate or Equivalent

Per the CCCApply Steering Committee feedback, there's a bug in the High School Education level field which displays the "Attended High School in California for 3 Years" question only if the user is a high school graduate or equivalent.  Up to this change, the application has been incorrectly displaying this question regardless of the user's high school education level. The conditions for this field are now:  

Do NOT display <cahs_3yr> IF <hs_edu_level> = 1, 2, 6, OR 0.

Changes to Logic

CCCApply Residency Logic Changes

REVERSAL of Homeless Youth Logic Change in Area B Residency Logic

As summarized above, a change was made to the Area B residency algorithm to reverse the Homeless Youth logic added in March 2017. 

NOTE: Reason for the reversal
In the weeks following the March 2017 release, a number of colleges reported an increase in incorrect residency status determinations, mainly due to the logic added to Area B.  The logic was added to identify students who are under 25 years of age (at the time of application) and homeless (or homeless any time within 24 months of application submission). Unfortunately students who may have been but are no longer homeless were being blocked from being admitted in a timely manner.

Fix Implemented

  • Remove the logic to identify homeless youth from Area B Residency logic completely
  • Move the homeless youth logic and the Integrity Flag 40 to the Homeless Youth question (see above) and
  • Trigger the flag if user - under 25 years of age - answers Yes to Homeless Youth question

To see the logic change specification (for the Area B Residency Table), click below or refer to Appendix A of the CCCApply Data Dictionary-V.2017.2 to see the full Area B logic table.

Info

What action does the college need to take?

No action is required by the college (unless you have implemented custom reporting and/or workflows around the residency calculation that would need to be updated with the removal of step 12 from the Area B residency logic). NOTE: With this reversal of Step 12 from the logic, Area B residency logic reverts back to the logic in place prior to release 6.0.0. See the changes reflected in the CCCApply Data Dictionary v.2017.2-PILOT (linked below).

Roadmap & Development News

New CCC Administrator - Coming March 2018

A new version of the CCCApply administrator tool is currently under-development. The new application, called the CCC Administrator, is due to release to colleges in March 2018. 

The new CCC Administrator is a robust, master admin configuration tool, providing one single point-of-entry for CCC college faculty and staff for all CCCTC web applications, services, and utilities, including Canvas, CCCApply, Course Exchange, MyPath, CCCAssess, and more.

The core product is built around an intuitive global infrastructure, SSO-based authentication, and shared (global) functionality including Colleges & Districts, Applications, Users, and other shared database elements and components (Terms, Majors, Courses, Rules, Messaging, and more), and provides a streamlined, user-friendly experience for college IT, Admissions and other staff, for managing application data across multiple Tech Center applications.

Development and integration is underway and will continue through 2018-2019.  CCCApply functionality is being integrated now and will roll out to a Pilot environment in February 2018. All existing college data will be migrated to the new system and colleges will be provided implementation training for the new system beginning in January 2018.

A beta version with Canvas-College Adapter functionality will launch in November 2017. 

CCC Report Center Upgrade 6.4 - Coming November 2017

An upgrade to the current version of the CCC Report Center in the Amazon Cloud is currently underway. The new version will be faster and provide more functionality than the current version for CCCApply, BOG and International Application reporting. Look for more information about the upgrade on the CCC College Support Site as soon as all approved feature customizations have been developed for this release.


Special Implementations

CCCApply Articulation with California Colleges Guidance Initiative 

CCCApply has partnered with the California Colleges Guidance Initiative (CCGI) to  works with twenty five school districts across the state that collectively serve upwards of 400,000 sixth to twelfth grade students. Those districts upload student’s academic transcript data into individual student accounts on CaliforniaColleges.edu, and all CCGI legal documentation allows for that data to be shared with institutions of higher education at the point of application.

CCCCO is moving towards the use of multiple measures placement. CCGI would like to push student data through to OpenCCCApply in order to support multiple measures placement, and create additional efficiencies for Admissions and Records staff.

Note
RESTRICTED DATA - The details of this data sharing agreement and micro-service is governed by the CCC Chancellor's Office and the California Colleges Guidance Initiative (a project of the CCC Foundation). No student personal identity data is viewed, stored, or exchanged as part of this service. Student applications submitted through CCGI are processed exactly the same way all CCCApply applications are. See below for key business needs and benefits to CCC colleges and our partner K12 schools. 

K12 Needs

By articulating CaliforniaColleges.edu with CCCApply, students are able to launch their CCCApply application from within their CaliforniaColleges.edu accounts (as they currently do with the CSU Mentor applications) and the system will automatically migrate over the key demographic information to populate CCCApply (current and potential future data fields).

This:
a. Creates an efficiency for students while increasing the accuracy of information received
b. Enables K12 educators to track which students have applied to which campuses both for:
i. Reporting Purposes and
ii. To support “warm handoffs” to the colleges by coordinating with outreach and counseling staff.

CCC Needs:

In future phases (not Phase I) - Through such an articulation, CCCApply could take in the following information from CaliforniaColleges.edu:

1) Student Name
2) Student Address
3) Student Statewide Identifier
4) Foster youth status
5) Completion of three years of high school in California (relevant for AB 540 verification).
6) Courses completed and grades received during all four years of high school


The Pilot Environment

The OpenCCCApply Pilot Environment is a preview and testing site used by colleges to implement the CCCApply applications and the OpenCCC Student Account System. The Pilot environment provides a copy of the production code during the year, except during the 30-Day Pilot Preview period - when it will contain pre-production code for an upcoming release. The Pilot Environment has separate Terms of Use & Support, and different SLAs than the production versions of OpenCCC and CCCApply applications.

30-Day Pilot Site Preview

In order to give colleges time to review, implement, and test the bug fixes and changes being deployed in a CCCApply release, the code is first released to the Pilot environment (aka sandbox or QA environment) 30 days in advance of the production release. For this release (6.1.0), the code is being rolled to the Pilot environment on September 28, 2017. This is the version of the application that will remain in the Pilot environment until the next 30-day Pilot Preview, tentatively scheduled for February 25, 2018.
