People using


Anytime, anywhere access to doing college business.



Edmonds College has transitioned to a new software system called ctcLink. The ctcLink project is the implementation of a single, centralized system to give students, faculty, and staff anytime, anywhere access to a modern, efficient way of conducting their college business. It is much more than a new software. All of the 34 technical and community colleges across the state are aligning their core business processes with the delivered software solution, making for streamlined, standardized practices across the 34-college system.

The PeopleSoft Enterprise Resource Planning (ERP) modules cover our core processes like registration, course management, payroll, human resources, financial aid, financial services, and reporting. Now implemented, all students and employees use this new system.

Factoids Background


Why was ctcLink necessary?

Our previous administrative systems (SMS, FMS, and PPMS) were implemented in 1979. After more than 40 years, these systems presented a serious failure risk. The database and reporting tools in use were no longer supported. Considerable effort was needed to keep the antiquated system operational and the effort continued to grow and become more expensive every day. There was no ability to improve or upgrade that system.
