What wave are we in? Now you know.

As many of you know, the ctcLink implementation schedule calls for deployment of the new system at our FirstLink colleges (Spokane and Tacoma) first, followed by four implementation waves of up to 8 colleges per wave. What we didn’t know (until today) was which colleges were in which wave. That information was revealed today at the presidents’ association (WACTC) meeting, so now we have the answer to the frequently asked question: What wave are we in?

The ‘go live’ timing is included below, but even more important will be the schedule of when the work begins for each wave and all the steps and processes in between. We’ll be sharing all of those details soon. But, for now, let’s get straight to the point:

The FirstLink colleges will go live on the new system in August 2014.

 Wave 1 – Go Live: May 2015

Columbia Basin, Pierce, Green River, Grays Harbor, Lower Columbia, Peninsula, Clark

Wave 2 – Go Live: February 2016
