Project History

Over the last 15 years a number of California Community Colleges have used EDI technology for electronic transcript exchange, but to a limited degree, primarily due to costs and complexities of supporting EDI services. In 1999, the CCC Chancellor's Office awarded a grant to Contra Costa College and Yuba College to study the feasibility of developing new systemwide solutions for Electronic Records Exchange, including an application for admission and transcript, using new Internet-based technologies. This resulted in the report, "Electronic Data Interchange Feasibility Study" (FSR), published in Spring 2000, that described the benefit, costs, and general requirements of such systems.
