FirstLink Go-Live status update

Many of you have heard a decision was made recently to adjust the ctcLink launch (go-live) date for FirstLink colleges (Spokane and Tacoma). The exact go-live date has not been approved yet, but we wanted to give you a quick status report before everyone heads out for the 4th of July holiday.

ctcLink, Ciber and FirstLink leadership are busy planning out a revised schedule that will put the go-live date somewhere during the latter part of fall quarter 2014. Everyone involved agrees this is a good, sound decision to ensure ctcLink is functionally ready to serve students, faculty and staff and that all users are ready to use the new system.

“We appreciate the support of the SBCTC board in this decision, and I can’t say enough about the collaborative approach taken by Spokane and Tacoma leadership and Ciber leadership, along with the ctcLink project team to determine exactly where we are and where we need to be as a team to ensure a successful transition to ctcLink for all involved,” said project director Barbara Martin.

We will announce the new go-live date for Tacoma and Spokane colleges once a date has been confirmed and the FirstLink colleges have had time to alert their campuses.

Have a happy and safe 4th of July!
