ctcLink for Faculty

In February 2021 a new payroll, accounting, and student management system will launch at Centralia College.

Centralia College is scheduled to go live with ctcLink during the week of Feb. 8-12, 2021.

IMPORTANT: You will receive specific instructions via email as the college gets closer to our go live date. This information will tell you exactly how to access ctcLink, obtain your new ctcLink ID, and activate your user account. Please stay tuned for that communication to come from the ctcLink project team via official college email in early February.

For faculty, you will have new online tools to help you manage class rosters, enter grades, submit early alerts, and manage advising. Additional ctcLink self-service features will help you manage your own experience as an employee.

ctcLink is entirely web-based, which means if you are working remotely you will no longer need to use VDI to access certain advising or early alert tools.    

A universal ctcLink ID (also referred to as EMPLID) will replace Faculty SIDs and will enable access to a wide range of faculty-specific tools. This ctcLink ID will serve as your faculty and employee ID number at Centralia College, as well as any other community and technical colleges in the SBCTC consortium.

Faculty need to complete all introductory training prior to Friday, Jan. 29.

The following online self-paced Canvas classes provide an essential introduction to ctcLink functionality:

Prerequisite courses

The courses below must be completed before you can activate your ctcLink ID

Please remember the deadline to complete all required online self-paced training is Friday, Jan. 29.

Faculty members from each Instructional Area are working with the local project team to develop a ctcLink communications and training plan and timeline specifically geared toward our faculty needs and concerns.

The following faculty members have agreed to be points of contact for other faculty as well as “super users” who can provide walkthrough demos, peer support, and resource recommendations.   

Please contact any (or all) of us for more information.
