Incarcerated students do not have access to the internet or email, is it possible for CCCApply to ask the question:  Are you incarcerated in a CA federal or state prison?  if they answer the question yes, then they do not have to provide an email address.

Good Morning Josie,
If an inmate doesn't have access to the internet, how would they complete the CCCApply application?

I would enter the app for them as I do today.  I can no longer use CCCApply because they all use the same email address.

Josie,
So they fill out a paper app, you go on-line and fill out the CCCApply app?

Well in that the student has not been the one to "grant permission" to their data your method of submitting applications for students that have no access to the internet is a problem.  I am aware that the Chancellor's Office has a work group developing a solution for issues similar to this.

The students grant me permission to enter their applications via CCCApply.

Well that is good, as long as your College keeps a record of that.

This is a great suggestion!  We have struggled with this also.
