About ctcLink

What is ctcLinkThe ctcLink project is the implementation of a centralized system to give faculty, students, and staff access to modern functionality and a more efficient way to conduct business. The PeopleSoft Enterprise Resource Planning (ERP) system will provide an integrated software experience that will streamline many of our business processes on a standardized platform at all 34 community and technical colleges in Washington State.

The various ERP modules will cover our core processes like registration, course management, payroll, human resources, financial aid, financial services, and reporting. Once implemented, all students and employees will use this new system.


Our current administrative systems (SMS, FMS, and PPMS) are outdated. Washington State Community and Technical Colleges implemented the existing system in 1979. After nearly 40 years, these systems present a serious failure risk. The database and reporting tools in use are no longer supported. Considerable effort is needed to keep this antiquated system operational and this effort continues to grow and become more expensive every day. There is no ability to improve or upgrade this system.
