Whereas, In 2011-2012, as a means of improving the application process for California’s community colleges, the California Community Colleges Chancellor’s Office, in conjunction with the CCC Tech Centers, launched CCC Apply in order to establish a common online application;
Whereas, Since its launch, CCC Apply has helped over ten million students apply for admission to one of California’s 116 community colleges, showing that this software has a strong demand and can help prospective students overcome challenges in completing the application process;
Whereas, Various issues have arisen since the launch of CCC Apply that have led to changes as well as legislation in AB3101(Carrillo, 2018) to improve CCC Apply; and
Whereas, Faculty often work with students to help them complete their online applications through CCC Apply and thus have a wealth of experience that can be utilized to improve the system:
Resolved, That the Academic Senate for California Community Colleges request consistent updates from the California Community Colleges Chancellor’s Office as technical changes are made to CCC Apply and communicate those updates during Area Meetings; and
Resolved, That the Academic Senate for California Community Colleges work with the California Community Colleges Chancellor’s Office to collect and consider data and information from faculty regarding issues related to CCC Apply while the process of improvement is ongoing.
