ctcLink Student Account Information

ctcLink provides you with a centralized system to conduct your college business. This system combines student information in a single data set to allow more self-service options and to improve the experience, especially if you are looking to transfer to or from other community and technical colleges within the state.

Your ctcLink account gives you access to the following applications:

  • Manage Classes: register for, add, and drop classes
  • Academic Records: view grades and past classes and download unofficial transcripts
  • Profile: view or update personal information, including your contact information
  • Financial Account: pay tuition and fees and check your account balance
  • Financial Aid: manage and accept financial aid awards and applications
  • Report Time as a Student Employee
  • Apply for Graduation
  • Your ctcLink ID and password are also the credentials used to access your Canvas learning account (but note that Canvas is a separate application).
