News & Updates sent October 28, 2021

Posted on October 28th, 2021

We’re nearing the mid-way point of week three since Skagit Valley College went live with our new ctcLink system after years of planning and preparation. To say these three weeks have been busy is an understatement, but we are finding our way day by day. Please take a few moments to review important dates and deadlines for this week.

Timecard Early Submission Today – October 28, 2021

This week we have another early payroll deadline. All timesheets need to be submitted by Employees, today, Thursday, Oct 28th by 3:00 p.m. Supervisors need to approve all timesheets by Friday, Oct. 29th at 5pm. To ensure that all timecards are approved, supervisors, please check your Manager Self Service throughout the day Friday and one last time late Saturday morning.

Emails generated from ctcLink have intermittently landed in recipients’ junk mail folders. Please don’t rely on these emails to remind you about timecards.  As noted above, we suggest you check your Manager Self Service over the weekend for pending approvals.

If you do receive any in ctcLink emails in your junk folder, please mark them as not junk to help “train” Outlook to deliver to your inbox.  Contact the IT Helpdesk if you need help.

Students Activate their ctcLink Accounts this Week

Students were invited to activate their ctcLink accounts on Monday, October 25. It is imperative that students complete this step so that they are able to begin registering for classes next week! If you interact with students, please spend a few minutes to ensure they’ve completed this step. How-to guides for students are available on the student pages of the ctcLink website. 

The IT Helpdesk is standing by to help with account activation. We also have open drop-in help sessions via Zoom this week for those who have questions during the activation process.
