HIATUS

This will be the last ctcLink Update for December. Publication will resume during the first week of the Winter Quarter. We wish you and your loved ones a wonderful holiday season.


CS PILLAR OUTAGE

There will be a Campus Solution Pillar outage of ctcLink on Saturday, Dec. 18 from 7 a.m. – 1 p.m. The outage is necessary in order to address critical system maintenance issues.


HCM TAX UPDATE

SBCTC will be performing maintenance on the HCM pillar on Tuesday, Dec. 21 from 7-10 p.m. The pillar will be unavailable during the maintenance period.

However, the Portal, Campus Solutions, and Finance pillars will remain online during the maintenance period. Additionally, Canvas will not be impacted.


SYSTEMS MIGRATION

Bellevue College has successfully migrated the following 19 business applications into ctcLink:

  • NetID
  • ADInfo
  • Request Center
  • Rave Alerts
  • Canvas Data Upload
  • DataAPI
  • Selective Admissions Applications TerraDotta
  • Team Dynamix
  • eRezLife
  • TargetX
  • Alma
  • LabZone
  • Online Directory
  • AIM
  • Maxient
  • Edquity
  • ReUp
  • Techzone

This is a significant accomplishment, given the complexity involved in transitioning these systems. Congratulations to all those who work so hard to make this happen!


PILLAR WORK SESSIONS

SBCTC is sponsering Pillar-specific learning sessions that will
cover important updates as well as an array of interesting topics. This is a forum for ctcLink users to share discoveries, issues, quirks, best practices, questions, business process options – and whatever else might come up.

Please note, these sessions are not trainings. They are intended to build community, develop collective knowledge, and share information. The goal is to support each other by sharing common experiences and identifying solutions.

It’s an informal community – a place everyone is invited and participation is encouraged.

View a schedule of sessions here.

DELEGATING FINANCE-RELATED APPROVALS

Approvers can delegate authority to another user for a period of time for certain modules within Finance.

In addition, view a video on how to create, review and accept delegations.


HIRING GUIDANCE

W2 AND W4 FORMS

It’s the end of the year – and quite often, questions come up over W2 and W4 forms. This recorded presentation contains many of the answers you need to necessary adjustments.


UPDATING PREFERRED EMAIL

Would you like to update your preferred email address? The option is available – and it takes less than a minute to complete the process. Update your email here.


WHAT’S HAPPENING WITH STUDENTS?

VIRTUAL SUPPORT – Virtual Support for student account activation and enrollment is available:

  • MON-THU: 8 a.m. – 5 p.m.
  • FRI: 8 a.m. – 4 p.m.

ON-SITE CTCLINK SUPPORT – On-site ctcLink Student Support for account activation is available in the U Building:

  • MON-THU: 9 a.m. – 4 p.m.

CLASS PERMISSIONS – Staff and faculty can view sessions about class permissions in preparation for Winter Quarter registration.

HELPING STUDENTS ACTIVATE ACCOUNTS – Need to help a student activate their ctcLink account so they can enroll for Winter Quarter this week? Check out the Staff Helping Students Guide.

ASSISTING STUDENTS WITH REGISTRATION – Student registration is a top priority. Staff are working to facilitate the process. If virtual support is unavailable, students can open a ticket in one of two places:

Please include course numbers and course names,
student ctcLink ID, student contact information and screenshots if possible.

A few notes to keep in mind:

  • Students cannot see Request Center tickets, so someone will respond to them once their issue is resolved.
  • Student Central Tickets are visible to students.
  • Staff cannot open tickets for students.

IN CASE YOU MISSED IT

BYPASSING THE MOBILE VIEW – The ctcLink button link for students on BC’s homepage leads to the ctcLink mobile application, which may not provide certain tiles for staff and faculty once users log in. 


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. 

PAST PAYSTUBS – Users can still review current and past paystubs under Employee Earnings & Leave.


If you have suggestions on improving this email, we would enjoy hearing from you. Contact Yves Martin, Communications Manager, at: yves.martin@bellevuecollege.edu.

CORRECTION In today's ctcLink Update, it was erroneously reported that the Campus Solution Pillar outage would occur on Nov. 13. Clearly, this is impossible. Even within ctcLink, time marches forward. The correct time for the outage is Saturday, Dec. 18. ...
