Technical Assistance Application

Applying for Technical Assistance

California’s Cradle-to-Career System brings together early education, K-12, higher education, and social service systems to create better futures for California students. The California College Guidance Initiative (CCGI) forms the core of the System’s college planning and application tools.

CCGI manages, the State’s official college and career planning platform, and we serve as California’s official Technical Assistance provider for aligning “a-g” courses with the University of California Office of the President’s Course Management Portal (CMP). School districts/local education agencies (LEAs) can apply for Technical Assistance to support aligning their “a-g” courses with CMP. This helps eliminate errors that can negatively affect students’ CSU and UC eligibility and provides access to’s innovative transcript-informed college planning and application tools.
