What is ctcLink?
ctcLink is the implementation of a single, centralized, statewide system of online functions to give students, faculty, and staff anytime/anywhere access to a modern, efficient way of doing college processes.
ctcLink is about much more than new software. As the legacy HP system is replaced, we also will align our core processes with the delivered software solution, making for streamlined, standardized practices across our 34 community and technical college (CTC) system.
Replacing "The HP" and Redesigning our Processes
Our 35-year old HP software and related systems are being replaced with PeopleSoft web-based software that does the same things, but in an improved way and with many new features. As we work towards implementing PeopleSoft, we all will be redesigning our college processes to adapt them to the new system.
What are the benefits of ctcLink?
ctcLink will be a massive upgrade for the entire CTC system. Faculty, staff, and students will have access to information from anywhere at any time. Students will use modern online tools for doing their college processes; they will have a more common experience across the CTC system, whether they transfer from one college to another or attend two or more CTCs at once. They will have one student ID and use common online tools for everything from admission to graduation. Among many other things, colleges — and the system as a whole — will benefit from a single source for accurate and timely data and the standardization of select administrative processes to support efficiency and effectiveness across the system.
