These rates were not finalized by the time registration opened for Fall quarter 2021. Please look for email updates that will provide additional information, and remember to check your student portal. Adjustments to your tuition and fees will reflect the final rates once those are available.

Service Update: ctcLink is Now Live!

Students, the new ctcLink system is now live to help you better manage your college experience. Many systems, including class registration, have transitioned to ctcLink. Learn more and activate your ctcLink account today.

View a table with a brief overview of what each system (ctcLink, Starfish, Canvas, MySouth) is used for along with relevant resources and login information.

Students should expect delayed responses from our offices because, much like you, we are also learning how to use and navigate the new system. Thank you for your patience during this transition and please continue to contact Student Services through Virtual Assistance.

Did you forget your ctcLink ID?

If you need ctcLink help, contact the IT Helpdesk. Zoom information and Q&A sessions are also available.
