CCC Accessibility Center

CCC Accessibility CenterThe California Community Colleges Accessibility Center offers accessibility tools that are designed to support testing and evaluation practices and streamline the review of web pages and content. Site-wide evaluation tools can spider through websites and offer a broad perspective as to the issues throughout the site. In contrast, in-browser tools will provide specific information as to any accessibility issues at a single-page level.

Available Accessibility Tools:

  • Website Scanning Tool - PopeTech
  • In Browser Tools - Deque aXe Extension, WebAIM WAVE Toolbar
  • Oz Media Player
  • Color Contrast Analysis - Colour Contrast Analyser, WCAG Contrast Checker
  • PDF Scanning and Correction

The CCC Accessibility Center also oversees accessibility compliance at the CCC Technology Center and systemwide technology initiatives.

In collaboration with the California Community Colleges Chancellor’s Office, the Accessibility Center has formed a Systemwide Accessibility Committee composed of stakeholders from across the system to develop a standards document and implementation plan for the CCC to meet accessibility standards for web and information technology.

The Accessibility Center is working to increase adoption of the CCC Accessibility Standard and expand the usage of accessibility tools by the colleges. Additionally, a library of training materials is being developed to assist in scaling accessibility education across the system.

A new training and monitoring program is also being developed that will teach college IT staff how best to perform self assessments in accessibility to find gaps in meeting the CCC Accessibility Standard.

CCCApply: Common Application For Admission

CCCApply: Common Application for AdmissionCCCApply is the online gateway to the California Community Colleges. Each year at our 116 colleges, 1.8 million students from all over the world build their career skills, prepare for transfer to four-year colleges and universities, or simply enrich their lives through learning.

To date, more than 20 million online applications have been processed through CCCApply.

Recently redesigned with a student-centered approach, CCCApply streamlines the application process for students and staff. The redesign includes a full Spanish translation and is mobile-friendly across all CCCApply applications. The CCCApply suite offers four applications to meet students’ diverse needs:

  • Standard application for U.S. residents
  • California College Promise Grant application (formerly known as the Board of Governors Fee Waiver application)
  • A streamlined Noncredit application
  • International application

CCCApply Milestones

  • 2012: The CCCApply standard (U.S. domestic) application was launched as part of a new suite of student-centric, online applications built on the CCC Systemwide Technology Platform. CCCApply standard application is now live at all 116 colleges.

  • 2014: The California College Promise Grant was launched. It is currently being used at 45 colleges.

  • 2016: The International Application was launched. It is currently live at 19 colleges.

  • 2018: A Noncredit Application workflow was implemented for domestic (U.S.) students enrolling exclusively in noncredit courses.

  • 2019-20: The CCCApply application suite underwent a major redesign and is now fully accessible to screen readers and other assistive technologies, mobile device-friendly, and supports full Spanish-language translation.

The CCCApply Advisory Committee oversees the application suite and determines new features that ensure compliance with state and federal legislation. The Technology Center facilitates meetings, documents change requests, change orders, and data dictionaries, and implements features based on the decisions and advice of the committee.

OpenCCC & Systemwide ID

OpenCCC Systemwide IDOpenCCC is an initiative to establish one systemwide ID for every California Community Colleges student. OpenCCC provides a way to tie together student data to better outcomes and institutional improvement as students swirl among our colleges while taking advantage of a variety of new online services. In addition, having one systemwide student account, known as CCCID, will help provide a single sign-on for students.

With the roll out of OpenCCC and the CCCID with the new CCCApply application for admission, over 10 million students now have an OpenCCC account and a CCCID. Current studies show just over a two-tenths of one percent (0.002) duplication factor on these records, making them very reliable as a way to identify student data.

Student-centered Design

Full Spanish translation and a mobile-friendly interface mirror the look and feel of the CCCApply suite of applications to provide students a seamless application experience.

Security Controls

To ensure the security of millions of student records containing personally identifiable information, our cloud hosting provider and our security practices and controls meet the highest industry standards (currently SOC 2.0 and ISO 27001).

Utilizing Outcomes Data

As the CCCID matures and all CCC students get OpenCCC accounts, we will work with the California Community Colleges Chancellor’s Office to incorporate the CCCID into the MIS data so that outcomes data in MIS can be tied to pre-enrollment data in CCCApply, assessment data in CCCAssess, education plans, and more.

Future Developments

By employing machine learning technologies, we will better identify and prevent duplicate accounts during the account creation process, thus driving duplicates below one-tenth of one-percent (0.001).
