Looks like the new online application in ctcLink has had a new version created that is “accessible” based on user testing, college recommendations, etc. You can read below to learn more.

Good morning ctcLink Governance, PMs/OCMs, Executive Sponsors and OAAP stakeholders,

Per the email below, the ctcLink Steering Committee’s conditions for the Online Admissions Application Portal (OAAP) go-live have been met! Please see the attached OAAP accessibility report for details.

The work to transition ctcLink colleges from the old OAA to the new OAAP begins today and DG2/DG3 colleges will be receiving an email shortly with instructions and additional guidance for the new OAAP.

Thank you,

Subject: OAAP Decision from Steering Committee

[Sent on behalf of Tim Wrye, ctcLink Steering Committee chair]

Good morning ctcLink Governance, PMs/OCMs, Executive Sponsors and College/SBCTC OAAP stakeholders,

Last evening, the ctcLink Steering Committee held a special meeting to review status of the new Online Admissions Application Portal (OAAP),

After reviewing the latest accessibility findings and fixes, college user acceptance testing results, and the DG2 and DG3 colleges’ Go-Live Readiness sign-off forms, the committee approved the OAAP go-live for DG2 and DG3 colleges on Feb. 2, 2021 with the condition that the level 10 severity accessibility issue is corrected and tested by 9 a.m. on Monday, Feb. 1, with a plan and dates for any remaining accessibility items to be addressed. Eight members approved the motion and one member opposed.

During the meeting, the committee reviewed the Go-Live Recommendation forms from all 10 colleges—Cascadia College, Clark College, Community Colleges of Spokane (two colleges), Lower Columbia College, Olympic College, Peninsula College, Pierce College District (two colleges), and Tacoma Community College. All colleges planning to implement OAAP signed off on going live on Feb. 2, with some conditions related to accessibility and other considerations.

Update: As of this morning, all level 7 and above accessibility issues on the student facing side have been resolved and tested.

On Monday morning, a small group of project and support staff will convene to ensure all conditions have been met prior to go-live on Feb. 2. If all the conditions are not met, the project and stakeholders will meet to determine a revised go-live schedule.

If all is a go, DG2 and DG3 colleges will receive OAAP go-live instructions and guidance, as well as information regarding post go-live support.
