FirstLink update: Week 3

FirstLink (Spokane and Tacoma) colleges are well into their third week using the new ctcLink system and a little over a week away from the beginning of fall quarter. In other words, BUSY!

Prep work for packaging and disbursing financial aid began this week and colleges have continued admitting and enrolling new students for fall quarter. As of this afternoon, 16,588 accounts have been activated in the system and more than 14,270 of those are students.

This week there have been anywhere from 11,000 to 14,000 logins to ctcLink daily. The ctcLink/Ciber project team continues to assist FirstLink college staff with data cleanup, system familiarity and working out the issues as they come up. This support continues on campus and from the Command Center and ctcLink Service Desk in Olympia.

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.
