The 2006-2007 Summary of Changes for the Application Processing System guide provides information about the changes and enhancements made to the 2006-2007 application processing system.

The November version of the guide, which updates the original edition published in late October 2005, contains revisions and text updates in the following two areas:

1) In the "CPS Edits" section, we revised bulleted text describing the conditions and intent of date of birth warning edits.

2) In the "Application Output to Students" section, we updated the "Processing Time Table" to explain more clearly the types of paper and electronic output sent to students under different scenarios.
