FLC SMEs attend ctcLink Academic Advisement workshop

Cielito Lane, TCC Transcript Evaluator, used the TCC course list in ctcLink to practice creating degree rules.

Some FirstLink college SMEs got a chance yesterday to practice using the Academic Advisement Report (AAR) in the ctcLink system, which will replace the current Degree Audit process. The workshop gave Spokane and Tacoma credentials evaluators and other student services SMEs a chance to get a detailed overview of AAR and how it’s structured before getting some hands-on practice of their own.

Using their college’s course list, SMEs were able to practice creating degree rules for Academic Advisement in the ctcLink Sandbox.  After the rules were built, they ran a student Academic Advisement report to see the output.

“It looks more intimidating than it is,” said TCC’s Robert Drake. “It is basically parallel to the existing Degree Audit process, we’ll just be using a different tool. We’ll still go through the same steps of building the rules, limits to those rules, then putting the rules into the certificates, then the certificates into the degrees.”

Catherine Kwong, ctcLink Student Functional Analyst, led the session. Here she is assisting SFCC Credential Evaluators Tamara Wittstruck and Lisa Baldwin.

This was  the first of several hands-on workshops planned for FirstLink SMEs to start practicing in the ctcLink system using their own college data!
