On the application there is a spot where you can write I think up to 500 words describing anything that you had not been able to in the application itself. Is it worth putting something here , or it is better just to leave it blank? If I don't have anything that personally affected me while attending community college, would I not write anything or describe something personal to me? Thanks in advance.

Also, on the application, where you enter your grades some of them show up with "CCCT" in light grey. I know this means california community college transferrable, but why do only a few of the grades have this next to them if every class I took is transferrable to where I am applying? Thank you!

    ok so this happened to me too. so to resolve it, you simply drag the screen up to the top, "select" the courses by clicking on the + sign by each course abbreviation instead of trying to type them in. I hope this helps!

    In which step does the "500 word box" appear? I'm looking through the Transfer App, but don't see an area.

    It is in the step with the personal statement, following the first two prompts.

    for the CCCT part, i had the same problem too, and in the end, i found out that my CC had changed the course name , for example: spring 2007 Political Science 180 , it will be put as Pol Sci 180, but in the fall 2007, my school changed it to PolSc A180.

    K, I figured it out. Under Academic History where you input all of your grades, instead of doing it manually choose each class under the assist.org drop down list. CCCT in grey will appear after each one once that is done. Thanks for all the help!
