CCCApply has created a new, optional, noncredit workflow feature in the CCCApply Standard Application. Development requirements for the first version of the new feature were implemented under the guidance of the CCCApply Redesign Workgroup, the CCCApply Advisory sub-committee for Noncredit application and the CCCApply product development team.
Pilot Project Outline
Below is an outline of the CCCApply Noncredit Application Pilot Project, including development and production phases:
Development requirements for the initial first version of this application (v.1.0) were drafted and implemented by the CCCApply Redesign Workgroup and sub-committee for the Noncredit Application. Details of the v.1.0 development specification development team. Requirements and change specifications can be found here: Noncredit Change Requirements and CCCApply Noncredit Application.
The overarching goal for the project is to prepare the new feature features for a larger scale Beta version release to more colleges in May 2019, and ultimately to production release to all colleges in June 2019.

The Noncredit Application workflow path feature is an optional special implementation in the CCCApply Standard Application - All Changes Are Backwards Compatible - No Actions Required: All the front-end changes deployed in the Noncredit Application path within CCCApply Standard Application (user interface changes, hidden pages and questions, disabling of web services, etc.) should NOT AFFECT YOUR STANDARD APPLICATION. All Noncredit Application back-end changes are optional and not mandatory for colleges to implement. Admissions, Financial Aid, and IT staff can rest assured there are no action REQUIRED by colleges that do not wish to implement the Noncredit Application.
Technical specifications for the Noncredit Application workflow feature are included in the CCCApply Standard Application Data Dictionary.
