The California Community Colleges Chancellor’s Office (CCCCO), in partnership with Accenture, has initiated the reimagining and development of a new student-centered application process and supporting system architecture for our prospective and returning students, to:

  • Improve the user experience
  • Reduce the pressure of the application process on students
  • Better support equitable access
  • Increase data accuracy
  • Protect against and mitigate fraud

The new CCCApply application will consider industry best practices while also exploring innovations in technology, user experience, and data collection, given the unique challenges and opportunities that the California Community College system must consider. The goal is for the resulting CCCApply Application to be one that is intuitive, inclusive, and secure, providing a best-in-class first impression to current and future students. The Chancellor’s Office is committed to gaining a thorough understanding of the needs, challenges, opportunities, and perspectives of important stakeholders in the system’s application process.
