I imported an updated majors list for Reedley College (572) and now applicants are getting this error message: "Major Code cannot be longer than 5 characters"

All of our major codes for Fresno City College and Clovis Community College are at least 9 or more characters, such as F.8872.AS-T. 

Why is this a problem for Reedley College now?

I did not find any duplicate Major Codes on my list.  Before I uploaded the new list, I exported the old list.  I re-imported the old list and we are still getting the same error.

We're getting this as well with Golden West College.  We have an "Undecided" major that maps to another major in the list so there is a duplicate major code in the list.  This was brought to my attention today which tells me that the problem was not occurring in the past.  Is it possible to have the same major code twice?
