⚠LCC is operating - we're just doing things differently.
LCC will continue to operate remotely until further notice (a list of face-to-face and hybrid classes for fall is now available). Medical Assisting, Nursing, Machining and Welding resumed limited lab activity on May 5. Applications for emergency funding assistance are still being accepted. - Learn More.
You get your new ctcLink ID number (called EMPLID in the system) when you activate your ctcLink account. Be sure to write down your new number when you get it and keep it in a safe place.
Plan to use your ctcLink ID number (as your username) and ctcLink password to login to Canvas starting in summer quarter 2020.
Note: all student employees will be assigned an @lowercolumbia.edu email address for use in ctcLink at go live (student workers do not have to set this as their preferred email address).
Pay periods are the 1st through 15th, and the 16th through the 31st. Deadlines for entering time and leave are as follows:
Note: employees who use FMS Query will continue to have access to historical data after go-live, but new transactions won't be entered there.
ctcLink is a version of PeopleSoft that is specific to the Washington community and technical colleges. It will replace LCC's current "Legacy" systems commonly referred to as SMS (student and course information), FMS (financial management information), and PPMS (employee information).
Nichole Seroshek is our designated project manager for ctcLink, and Wendy Hall can also answer project questions. You can also submit questions through the link at the bottom of this page. There are many others involved in project leadership; learn more on the ctcLink Project Leadership page.
Yes, 25Live is a required element in ctcLink, so LCC will continue to use 25Live for room scheduling.
Human Resources will do most of the set-up for new employees before their first day, but employees themselves have to enter key pieces of information (including entering a password and selecting security questions) to activate their accounts. For most employees, this will occur during their first day on the job.

(For example, if a student brings in an unofficial transcript that hasn't been evaluated yet and an instructor decided to waive something for them based on that information.)
If a student is enrolling based on an unofficial transcript, a milestone can be added for the student so that they meet enrollment requirements to enroll in the class via the online registration system. If a faculty member issues a prerequisite waiver, a permission number can be issued to allow enrollment via online the registration system or staff can perform an override based on written permission from the faculty member (using a prerequisite waiver form).
Yes, these transactions will still take place in PeopleSoft. Enrollment Services staff will be able to make these changes (they require a backdate for enrollment counting purposes, so need to be completed by staff).
If a student has had an enrollment within the last 6 years prior to the go-live term, the full student record converts to PeopleSoft (all historical records/courses from the students record will be listed on a student's LCC transcript).
Students who have had an enrollment within the last 6 years prior to the go-live term will have their full academic record converted. Students who have had an enrollment prior to the last 6 years before the go-live term will need to have their record built manually into PeopleSoft by Enrollment Services staff when they return.
We'll post the answer here in the FAQs, or you can include your email address if you'd like a direct response. Thank you!
