Colleagues: based on the advice of our system internal auditor last month, we determined that we cannot ask student applicants for their marital status, parental status, or disability at the point of application, based on federal law and OCR rules. Therefore, we will be removing those questions from the PeopleSoft OAA. We realize that the colleges may be affected by this decision (the FirstLink colleges now and the other colleges as they come on-line). A way of collecting this information "post-enrollment" must be developed in the PeopleSoft environment.
