Data Delivery Methods

Last update: October 12, 2021

IMPORTANT: Beginning Fall 2021, the CCCApply Download Client (DLC) will begin end-of-life activities. The CCCTC will continue required maintenance and bug fixes for the DLC, but no new student data fields will be made available to the CCCApply Download server or the DLC software. The CCCTC has begun communication campaigns to encourage colleges to move to SuperGlue for Apply as the primary mode of data delivery for CCCApply, OpenCCC Account, and CCC MyPath data, moving forward.

CCCApply application data is delivered to colleges via the methods below.


Data Staging Tables

Colleges have the option to have their CCCApply application data delivered via SuperGlue to a secure staging table, accessible via a CSV file export. College researchers can request access to their college CCCApply LGBTQ data (AB 620) using this option, which is otherwise restricted from basic downloads (CCCApply Download Client) and the CCCApply Report Center.

SuperGlue for Apply

SuperGlue for Apply delivers student application data directly to your college’s SIS via the SuperGlue College Adapter. On average, SuperGlue for Apply is able to deliver the full dataset for each of these applications directly to colleges on average within seconds of application submission. This service is available for the following CCCApply applications:

  • Standard Application

  • Noncredit Application

  • International Application

  • California College Promise Grant Application

  • Multiple Measures Placement data


For a complete listing of the data delivered per application type, see the CCCApply data dictionaries links below.
