ctcLink is the implementation of a new, integrated technology foundation that will provide modern online services—anytime, anywhere—to all students, faculty and staff of Washington’s community and technical colleges.
Called Enterprise Resource Planning or ERP, ctcLink will replace the college system’s aging legacy systems — such as the current Financial Management System (FMS), Student Management System (SMS) and Personnel/Payroll Management System (PPMS)—with a set of interconnected software modules to help the college system streamline and standardize the way colleges do business today.
Washington’s 34 community and technical colleges have shared back-office administrative systems for 30 years, but the software and functionality is both limited and outdated. That’s why the collegs are seeking a new and more flexible information system to meet business and educational needs now and into the future.
