FirstLink Go Live: Day 4

Good evening from the ctcLink Project. Just a quick update on day 4 of go-live for FirstLink (Spokane and Tacoma) colleges. It was another productive and long day for all involved–TCC, SFCC, SCC, Ciber and SBCTC staff.

Before Noon today, a total of 2900 people had activated their new ctcLink account since Monday and 1515 of those were students. Some bugs are being worked out with the new Online Admissions Application (OAA), but there was still some success, with more than 50 new students applying to Spokane or Tacoma colleges using OAA. That number is expected to go up significantly next week when all 3 colleges actively advertise ctcLink and the new OAA to students/future students.

Stay tuned for a week-in-review blog post with a bit more detail on what was accomplished this first week of FirstLink colleges being the trailblazers in implementing ctcLink for the WA community and technical college system.

About ctclinknews

ctcLink is a single, centralized system of online tools for student services and administrative functions for all 34 community and technical colleges in Washington. In the next several years, ctcLink will be implemented on every campus, providing online tools for everything from admissions to graduation. The first three ("FirstLink") colleges came online in August 2015. A wave of 8 more colleges (cleverly named "Wave 1") will switch over to the new ctcLink system in August 2016, followed by Wave 2 in 2017 and Wave 3 in 2018.
