ctcLink for Faculty

What are the benefits of ctcLink to me?

For most faculty this will mean new online tools that will help them better manage classes and rosters as well as their experience as an employee. Faculty will have their SID replaced by a universal ctcLink ID (sometimes referred to as the EMPLID). This one ctcLink ID will be used at all Washington community and technical colleges.

Once ctcLink is implemented faculty will be able to do the following:

  • Use My Schedule to view all classes which are assigned to you
  • View and print class roster
  • Send messages to a group of students, or individually email from your roster
  • View final exam schedule
  • Use grade roster—where you will see what program a student is enrolled in and assign grades

What systems will be replaced by ctcLink?

  • Financial Aid Management (FAM)  PeopleSoft Campus Solutions (CS)
  • Student Management System (SMS)  PeopleSoft Campus Solutions (CS)
  • Financial Management System (FMS)  PeopleSoft Financial Management (FM)
  • Personnel & Payroll Management System (PPMS)  PeopleSoft Human Capital Management (HCM)
  • Time & Leave Reporting (TLR)  PeopleSoft Human Capital Management (HCM)

25Live, Canvas, and Starfish will be used in conjunction with PeopleSoft. Learn more.

When will this change take place?

ctcLink is scheduled to go live for Seattle Colleges – Central, North, and South – on Monday, February 22, 2021.


Seattle Colleges ctcLink faculty training is currently under development. A small team is working on a focused set of ctcLink presentations tuned to the needs of our faculty. We plan to ask faculty to complete this training in January 2021. If you’re interested in how faculty will use ctcLink, two courses offered in Canvas cover the generic, state-wide ctcLink functionality and are appropriate for faculty to complete at this time.

  • ES100 HCM Employee Self-Service
  • CF100 Faculty Self-Service

To enroll in these two classes, go to the Training page.
