What are the benefits of ctcLink to me?
ctcLink is our new online management platform for faculty, staff, and students that replaces several antiquated, decades-old legacy systems. The transition to ctcLink is a major statewide project to upgrade the information systems at all 34 community and technical colleges. The major benefit is the integration of data systems.
Faculty will have their SID replaced by a universal ctcLink ID ( referred to as the EMPLID). This one ctcLink ID will be used at all community and technical colleges across the state of Washington. With this new ID, you will have one login to access your information across Seattle Colleges as well as at all Washington community and technical colleges.
ctcLink offers faculty new online tools to manage classes and rosters as well as your experience as an employee. With ctcLink faculty can:
- Use My Schedule to view all classes which are assigned to you.
- View and print Class Roster.
- Send messages to a group of students, or individually email from your roster.
- View final exam schedule.
- Use Grade Roster—where you will see what program a student is enrolled in and assign grades.
