Late Timesheets: Did you know? 

Being on one, state-wide software system (ctcLink!) means all users are paid on a centralized schedule. Our payroll process is no longer initiated by BC’s Payroll Office. Now it is initiated by the State Board of Community and Technical Colleges (SBCTC).Because of this, the Payroll Office can no longer accept late timesheets. To ensure your paycheck processes as you anticipate, please submit your timesheet early and allow your supervisor time to approve it. Watch the timesheet help session recordings by visiting the Employee Time and Leave Reporting section in Staff How Do I website. In-person support for timesheet completion will be offered on Nov. 30 in the B Building from 8 a.m. – 5 p.m. Virtual help is also available next week: MON – TUE: 8 a.m. – 12 p.m.
WED – THU: 1 – 5 p.m.
FRI:  10 a.m. – 2 p.m.

Systems Migration This Week

For anyone who has had to move from one living space to another, you know the many steps and challenges that go with packing up a household and transporting it to another location. The migration of 25 business applications into ctcLink is a similar undertaking. BC is moving our applications over in four phases. Migration began this week for the second phase to the new backend system for: 

  • Team Dynamix
  • eRezLife
  • TargetX
  • AIM
  • Online Directory

The good news is that applications will remain functional as we transition to the new data. Our ITS team will be working toward a smooth transition, but please be aware that there may be service interruptions. Visit the ctcLink websitefor information on future phases for systems migration.

In Case you Missed It

  • Employees are noticing a different view when logging in using the ctcLink button on BC’s homepage. That link leads to the ctcLink mobile application for students to access ctcLink and various BC resources. Click on the first tile to go to the ctcLink login: myaccount.ctclink.us.
  • To bypass the mobile view, use myaccount.ctcLink.us to go directly to the login. Staff and faculty can also login from the Resources for Faculty & Staff page. Bookmarking this page or the direct link is recommended for logging in.
  • Finance, Human Resources and Payroll Offices are open with limited service.
  • Requisitions, Quick Invoice, Travel & Expense, and Expense Report (Employee Reimbursement) operations are ready for submissions. Visit the Finance Resource Center for training dates and times.
  • Human Resources will accept requests for new hires starting Dec. 1.
  • You can still review your past paystubs in Employee Earnings & Leave. 
  • Are you interested in how BC is communicating with students regarding the transition to ctcLink? Go to the student section of the ctcLink website. You’ll be able to read the latest news and communications.
