Next Steps and Close Meeting
The new CCCApply Noncredit Application workflow in the CCCApply Standard Application for Admission was launched on June 30, 2019. We are approaching our six month anniversary. The purpose of this meeting is to kick-off the first meeting of a new "user advisory group" that can support the CCCApply product development and marketing & communications teams to ensure the Noncredit Application is continuously improving and focused on the student experience - before, during and after the application process.
Refer to the recent workgroup discussion about AB540 to determine of Noncredit students are covered: CCCApply Sub-Committee: Requirements for AB540/SB68 Compliance
|#||Title / Description||Change Suggestion||Our Response||Requirement Notes|
|Does the Noncredit Application comply with the MIS data requirements for Noncredit programs?||Concern: the Noncredit Application does not comply with all the MIS data requirements for Noncredit programs||Some of the required MIS questions for noncredit are Term based and therefore implementing them into the Application doesn't necessarily add value because the college will have to collect them at registration anyway.|
Noncredit students are eligible for nonresident tuition exemption under AB540. Does the current Noncredit application identify these students?
Concern: The residency page and other residency RDD questions were removed from the Standard Application to form the Noncredit Application. Therefore there may be some need to update the application or the AB540 logic to ensure Noncredit students who are eligible for AB540 are identified by the college.
Check that integrity flags are also reviewed for requirements.
Review the AB540 laws with the User Group and start identifying needs.
12.12.19: Not much feedback or discussion in the meeting around this. We will keep it as a topic in the Parking Lot for now and revisit in the next meeting. .
Administrator Needs: Social Security Number in the NC App
Concern: Are their other custom requirements we should be tracking for Administrator configuration or reporting?
12.12.19: We discussed whether the SSN should be added to the NC application or not. The ideal feature would be to have an opt-in/out toggle built into the Administrator.
|12.12.19: The feature that was discussed was implementing the ability to opt-in or out of displaying the Social Security Number question in the Noncredit app. The SSN will be moved into the Standard application in Fall 2020.|

Alerts college Financial Aid personnel to applicants who are eligible for AB540 tuition waiver.
Determines whether AB540 information and links are included on the Links and Opportunities page.
CCCApply facilitates early awareness of financial assistance in two directions. The application process asks questions about the Needs & Interests of the applicant to alert them to the possibility of financial assistance, and offer links to the online BOG Fee Waiver application and FAFSA federal aid application form. Based on responses to the Needs & Interests questions, CCCApply can send notification to financial aid departments at the same time as the application is downloaded by the college so that financial aid departments can begin their processes of contacting and assisting the applicants.
The process of identifying the student and the information required in the notification to the financial aid departments are outlined below.
If the AB540 Eligibility flag is “Yes”, then the following links are automatically generated on the Special Links and Opportunities page:
You may be eligible for a special tuition waiver.
