Michelle,
I did not want this to go "un-answered".  I have requested this information from the Product Manager, as I do not know if "non-binary" will be included in the Gender options.  When I hear back, or there is a public announcement I will follow up in this stream.

Non-Binary will be included in the  6.5 Release

New "Non-binary" Value Added to the Gender Field in the Standard & Noncredit Applications

 Click here to see new screen shot...


A new value has been added to the Gender field question <gender> on the "Demographic Information" page in the CCCApply Standard & Noncredit Applications.   

To support recently passed legislation (SB179) and the Academic Senate resolution (F18 Non-binary Gender Option on CCCApply) calls for an additional value be added to the CCCApply Gender field to support all student populations, including LGBTQIA + students and others who identify as non-binary.  

See change specification:  2019-11: Add Value to Gender Field for Non-Binary Genders
See New & Changed Data Fields section below.

The following data values should appear in the Gender Field dropdown for the Apply application for both credit and non-credit paths in this order:

Male = M
Female = F
Non-binary = B
Decline to State = X
No Response = Null
