Enhancements were made to the CCCApply applications, as well as the CC Promise Grant application, that will allow colleges to track unique marketing and enrollment campaigns that have been setup to drive traffic to their college-branded u8 applications. 

Up to three unique URL key/value pairs can be integrated into each application using: user1=x, user2=y, and user3=z (where x, y, and z are set to the name of your specific campaign). 

For example, when you provide an application URL link that includes the campaign value such as this one: https://www.opencccapply.net/cccapply-welcome?cccMisCode=231&user1=x&user2=y&user3=z, the "x,y,z" values are stored in the submitted_applications database and downloaded through your job and format definition XML files. The data dictionaries and the Download Client have been updated to include the new <campaign1>, <campaign2>, and <campaign3> (hidden) fields for each application. 

Implementation guide

Adding the new campaign data fields to your download file requires:

  1. In order to implement the campaign feature, when you create your URL for students to link to the CCCApply application you must add the extra parameter of &user1=x (where x = the name of your campaign) on to the end of the URL link. You can do this for up to three parameters, using &user1=x&user2=y and &user3=z (where x, y and z = the names of other unique campaigns). For example, the format for implementing a URL for three campaigns would look like this: http://www.google.com

    https://www.opencccapply.net/cccapply-welcome? cccMisCode=231&user1=x&user2=y&user3=z

    This is an example of a college's CCCApply application URL with the Campaign 1 custom data field appended to the end of the Application URL.

  3. Update your application Format Definition XML file to include the new campaign fields
  4. Configure your SIS system to import the new fields
  5. Update your download client "transfer client jar file" (which does not affect your existing download process).

For more information on updating your CCCApply download XML files, refer to the CCCApply Download Client User Guide.
