Need a Brief Break from Reality?
Finding accreditation-related documents on the website can be tricky, especially for those with paws and hooves. How did Delta Dog and Ace the Accreditation goat fare in the quest to find the fabled MFR? Learn more at “ Project Mascots Go Hoof to Paw in 2020 Docu-Race Championship ,” where you can also watch the race.
New Lunch and Learn on Friday
Eat and engage with Delta Dog and friends on Friday, Oct. 2, at noon. Lunch and Learn with Delta Dog gives our campus community an informal chance to ask questions of the ctcLink team. Join us Friday and learn what Delta Dog eats for lunch.
Word of the Week
While you learn and work with ctcLink and its software, PeopleSoft, you’ll come across many words and terms. To help you learn the lingo, here’s this week’s word (find others on the Terminology page):
Campus Solutions (CS) : One of the three main working systems — referred to as “pillars” — in the PeopleSoft software that runs ctcLink. Campus Solutions (CS) will manage student administration, including admissions, financial aid and student records. It will replace the Student Management System (SMS), Financial Aid Management (FAM) and Degree Audit. The other two pillars are Finance and Human Capital Management.
The clock is ticking. Just 87 working days until Highline goes live with ctcLink on February 8, 2021.
Delta Dog wants to connect with her two-legged campus friends through social media. Join her on Facebook, Instagram and Twitter.
