ctcLink Project

What is ctcLink?

Edmonds Community College will be transitioning to a new software system called ctcLink. ctcLink is the implementation of a single, centralized system of online functions to give students, faculty, and staff anytime, anywhere access to a modern, efficient way of doing their college business. It is much more than a new software. As the current 35-year-old administrative system is replaced, all of the community colleges will also align their core business processes with the delivered software solution, making for streamlined, standardized practices across the 34-college system.

Once implemented, all employees and students will use the new ctcLink system. It will replace the current way we enroll for classes, manage courses, process payroll and much more.
