Student Authentication

Starting this Wednesday, February 2, your students may receive a series of authentication questions designed to help us authenticate and verify student identity. This process is managed by a third-party company called Acxiom. This is part of our on-going effort at improving student identification, attendance and retention.

The following e-mail has been sent to all students regarding the start of our use of Acxiom on Wednesday and our authentication policies in general. The 24x7 Support Center (PerceptIS) has also been informed of this change.


CCCOnline Course Authentication and Participation Policy (CAPP)

To improve our overall program integrity, ensure that each student is doing his/her own work and comply with our home colleges’ accreditation agencies, CCCOnline is implementing the following steps:

• During the semester, students may be presented with random pop-up security questions when logging into their online course(s). It is important that students answer these questions as accurately as they can.

• All students will be required to complete at least two assignments within the first two weeks of the semester.

Students who do not meet the CAPP requirements may be reported by their instructor to the CCCOnline Student Services Department.

The random security question authentication process is managed by a third-party company. CCCOnline does not have access to this database. This data is secured by the third-party company, which complies with student privacy and FERPA regulations.
