Free InCommon Membership for CCC Colleges

To facilitate the new CCC SSO Federation and enable single sign-on access to all systemwide technology offerings across the CCC system, the CCCCO and the CCC Technology Center have put together an agreement for InCommon Membership for all California Community Colleges to be paid centrally moving forward. Ongoing funding for this effort is a part of the Technology Initiatives for Student Success funded by the legislature.

The purpose of the California Community Colleges Single Sign-on Federation (CCC SSO) is to provide secure, scalable, and integrated technology solutions for the California Community Colleges that take advantage of economies of scale and facilitated by governance from the colleges themselves. The CCC SSO Federation offers a common framework for shared management of access to CCC resources and secure web applications.

CCCApply-XAP Master Contract Expired December 31, 2016

The CCC Technology Center extended the CCCApply master contract with Xap, originally due to expire on June 30, 2014, to December 31, 2016.
