Information for Students

About ctcLink

NOTE: Students will be able to access ctcLink starting October 25th, please wait to try to do anything in ctcLink until then.

As we transition to ctcLink, some departments will be operating with limited services or closures between Oct. 11-25. 

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.

What are the benefits of ctcLink to me as a student?

Our former system used outdated technology that didn’t offer the integrated online services you need. ctcLink offers many services online in a mobile-friendly way. ctcLink will help you better manage your entire college experience. 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.

Registration Tips

Fall Quarter 2021 will continue in our current system. Registration for Winter Quarter 2022 will take place in ctcLink. In preparation for Winter Quarter, we’ve developed a list of important tips that will help you get the most out of ctcLink when registering for classes. 

  • Do I really need a permission number for every class? (No, not for every class.)
  • Make sure to select the appropriate academic term.
  • You must be logged in to enroll in a class or add a class to your shopping cart or planner.
  • Remember to include Common Course Numbered (CCN) classes in your search.
  • Your search layout depends on the size of your screen.
