Background Information

Our move is part of the Washington Community and Technical College System’s statewide project to upgrade the information systems at all 34 community and technical colleges. Peer institutions, including Centralia, Edmonds, Highline, and Wenatchee Valley Colleges, made the conversion in early February. ctcLink is already in use at the Pierce College District, Olympic College, and Tacoma Community College, among others.

In ctcLink implementation, conversion and validation refers to the process of loading data from the existing legacy systems to PeopleSoft. The conversion process involves identifying the data that must be brought to the new system, mapping the data to PeopleSoft fields, translating old codes into PeopleSoft codes, and finally loading the clean, compatible data into PeopleSoft.

The move to ctcLink is led by the State Board for Community and Technical Colleges (SBCTC) project team. They work with each district to bring them into the system. ctcLink is also how SBCTC has purchased and configured Oracle’s PeopleSoft Campus Solutions, Finance, and Human Capital Management pillars to work together.

Governance structure

ctcLink is a big, statewide system with many global configuration choices that have been made for all college users. There is a formal governance process to manage how the global configuration is set up and improved over time.


The ctcLink project is led by the State Board for Community and Technical Colleges. Walla Walla Community College has a WarriorLink Project Leadership Team to guide our implementation.
