Information for Students

Activate your ctcLink Account Guide

Important: When you activate your ctcLink account, do not click OK in the pop-up window until after you’ve written down or taken a screenshot of your ctcLink ID number.  If you forget your ctcLink ID number, you can look it up on the legacy toolbox here (if you have a legacy SID and PIN.)

ctcLink provides you with a centralized system to conduct your college business. This system combines student information in a single data set to allow more self-service options and to improve the experience if you are looking to transfer to or from other community and technical colleges within the state.

Your ctcLink account gives you access to the following applications:

  • Manage Classes Enrollments: Class Enrollments and registrations
  • Financial Aid: Manage financial aid awards and applications.
  • Academic Records: View past classes with grades and get unofficial transcripts.
  • Profile: View or update personal information.

Using the new online student center, you can do the following 24/7 from your mobile device, laptop, or home computer:

  • View or update your student information and manage personal contact info.
  • Register for classes, add, and drop.
  • Pay tuition and fees and handle financial aid processes.
  • View grades, track academic goals, and apply for graduation.
  • Register for specific courses that apply to remaining program requirements.

With your ctcLink ID, you have one login to access your information at Skagit Valley College as well as at all Washington community and technical colleges. If you transfer in from or out to another community or technical college in Washington state, you will be able to use that same ID to access your information, which will follow you.
