CCCApply Public Documentation


CCCApply is the "Online Gateway to the California Community Colleges"

Since 2001, CCCApply has served over 10 million students apply to one or more of 115 California Community Colleges; generating over one million submitted applications per year. In 2011, the CCCApply master development contract between the CCC Chancellor's Office and the Xap Corporation expired, allowing the CCC Technology Center to develop a new version of CCCApply and a statewide student account system called OpenCCC.
