CCCApply: Common Application For Admission

CCCApply: Common Application for AdmissionCCCApply is the online gateway to the California Community Colleges. Each year at our 115 colleges, more than 2.1 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.

Beginning in 2001, the CCC Technology Center led the effort to implement a Common Application for Admission, Online California College Promise Grant (formerly known as the Board of Governors (BOG) Fee Waiver), and International Application for Admission.

  • In 2012 a new suite built on the CCC Systemwide Technology Platform was launched, and is now live at 111 colleges, with the remaining colleges in various stages of implementation. To date, more than 7.5 million online applications have been processed.

  • The California College Promise Grant is live at 37 colleges.

  • The International Application is live at 17 colleges.

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

Next Generation

Working with the CCCApply Advisory Committee and other stakeholders, the Technology Center will next build the CCCApply applications as configurable forms on a forms engine. This would ensure we could offer multiple languages, responsive mobile interfaces, WCAG 2.0 AA accessibility, and full integration with the CCC MyPath student services portal. A universal functionality approach to the new form engine will enable new systemwide and local college forms to be easily created and deployed to students.
