Pilot Environment

The OpenCCCApply Pilot Environment is a full-featured testing environment available to colleges for implementation, testing, and the pre-deployment review of application changes prior to each annual update.

For most of the year, the Pilot environment mirrors the Production application and staff tools exactly; however, the only time the Pilot site does not mirror Production site is 30-60-90 days prior to a release or the annual update in order for colleges to prepare their systems for upcoming changes to the download file or the residency logic.

For more information about communicating application releases and the CCCApply annual update, see the Annual Update page on this website.
