9/20/22 - Notice from the CCCTC about Finalized Descriptors and Courses

Users have reported issues locating courses in the Articulation Officer queue and on the C-ID public courses page. This issue is caused as a result of the descritpor status changing at the 5 year mark from "Final" to "Draft". While there is a process to review and revise descriptors, the status change in C-ID was not planned and should not have occured. We are actively and immediatley working to return the descriptors that had were changed to "Draft" status from "Final" status and will continue to post updates here until we have verified the issue is fully resovled.
