Revise the layout of the Residency page
Reorder the questions and sections on the Residency Page for all users
- Switch the positions of the Special Residency Categories section and the Out-Of-State Activities section.
Currently the layout of the Residency page places the Special Residency section in the middle between the California Residence and the Out-of-State Activities sections. This layout prohibits the ability to implement skip logic to streamline the experience for CA residents.
The new order of sections/questions on the Residency page is:
- California Residence section (no changes to questions, fields, or logic)
- Out-of-State Activities section
- Special Residency section - with specific questions hidden by default.
This is a layout change and there are no changes required by the college
- (with added skip logic to only Show specific Special Residency questions based on the user's Out-of-State activities and the most recent year is within 2 years of the RDD.
Hide three questions in the Special Residency section by default for all users
- Public School Employee
- State College Employee
- Seasonal Agricultural Worker
Add logic to Show the three questions as a group if user selects one or more Out-of-State activities and the most recent year is within 2 years of the RDD.
|Currently, all Special Residency questions display to all users in Yes/No radio button format and a response to each question is required.|
The Special Residency section now only displays the Homeless Youth Status and Foster Youth Status questions to all users with all existing validation and logic in place.
If user selects (checks) one or more of the "Out-of-State Activities" with the most recent year of activity is within 2 years of the RDD, then the three hidden special residency questions will display as a group and responses will be required.
Note: The Homeless Youth and the Foster Youth questions ALWAYS display and each requires a response by all users.
College needs to be aware that this field will now allow a null
Note: In 2018, only 1% of all applicants responded Yes to this question.
Revise the "Out of State Activities" Section by combining four separate, required questions into one optional question with skip logic to shorten the Special Residency section
Combine the four current "Out-of-State Activity" questions into ONE new question, and change the format of the response options from required, Yes/No radio buttons and set the default to "No".
Currently, the "Out-of-State Activities" section consists of four separate, required, Yes/No questions with conditional "Year" fields that appear if the user answers Yes to any of the specific questions.
The new "Out-of-State Activities" section now contains one question (onscreen text) with four optional checkbox response options (the original four OOS questions, revised).
"As of <RDD minus 2 years>, have you engaged in any of the following activities? Check each activity that applies."
[checkbox] I paid taxes outside of California
[checkbox] I registered to vote outside of California
[checkbox] I declared residency at a college or university outside of California
[checkbox] I filed for a lawsuit or divorce outside of California
All existing data fields would persist (no change to data output, downloads, etc.)
There is no change to the text, conditions, logic or data fields for the four, corresponding Out-of-State Activity Year fields section/questions.
The four Out-of-State Activities questions/fields are now optional (responses are no longer required by default) and the data fields will now accept Null or blank.
Hide the College Education Level and
Colleges/Universities Attended questions on the Education page by default for all users
Add logic to the College Enrollment Status question to only show college sections if the user is NOT a first-time in college after leaving high school
|Currently, the College Education Level section and the Colleges/Universities Attended sections are required questions/sections that appear to all users on the Education page, even for students who have never attended college in the past. |
The College Education Status and Colleges/Universities Attended sections/questions will not display on the Education page unless the user indicates they have attended one or more colleges in the past.
If the user selects "first-time in college after leaving high school" option in the College Enrollment Status question, do not show college questions and default field value to Null.
|Noncredit Application||Add a Prefix to the Confirmation Number for Noncredit Applications||The Confirmation number (as well as the App_ID) will include a prefix of "NC" if the application is started and submitted using the Noncredit URL.||Example:|
|Noncredit Application||Hide the Residency Page in the Noncredit Application path||When a student applies to your college using your Noncredit URL, the user interface and the user experience will be very similar to the Standard Application but the residency page is not included in the workflow. No residency page questions are required at the time of submission.|
|Noncredit Application||Hide the Citizenship & Military Page in the Noncredit Application path||The Citizenship & Military page of questions do not appear in the Noncredit Application workflow|
Hide questions from the Needs & Interests Page in the Noncredit Application path:
Are you comfortable reading and writing English?
Are you interested in receiving information about money for college?
Are you receiving TANF/CalWORKs, SSI, or General Assistance?
Are you interested in participating in a sport while attending college?
|Several Needs & Interests page questions do not appear in the Noncredit Application workflow; however, the Programs & Services table DOES APPEAR in the Noncredit Application workflow as a series of optional checkboxes.|
|Noncredit Application||Auto-population of Noncredit Application responses in the Standard Application ||Note: Auto-population will pre-fill previously submitted responses from the last application submitted within 2 years of current date.|
|Noncredit App||Add logic to allow applicants to re-apply to the same college and the same term when transitioning from Noncredit to Credit status||Currently, the Standard Application prevents a user from submitting two applications to the same college for the same term. This ||With the implementation of the Noncredit Application path, a student who submits a Noncredit Application to college (A) for term (A) is now able to re-apply with the Standard Application to college A for term A. This logic has been modified for Noncredit > Standard Application only. ||(NOTE: This means that a student who has submitted an application to a college (example: College A, Term A) using the Noncredit Application, can now re-apply (submit a Standard Application to the same college for the same term A). However, this only applies to students transitioning from Noncredit status to Credit status; otherwise they will be blocked from submitting a second Standard Application to the same college, same term.)|
