You Can Win With ctcLink Training
“Doing the training made me excited because I learned that I won’t need to have five or six programs open at the same time,” said Barbara Lester, who works in the Advising Center. Her tip: “Don’t wait to do the training. Do little pieces as at a time. It makes it easier to get through.”
Get started today and you could win a $25 gift card to Amazon. See “Delta Dog Offers Tips for Tackling Training” to learn how. The next drawing will be October 15. Enter today.
Congratulations, Justin Farris!
This week’s Golden Paw Award winner is Justin Farris, who works in Continuing Education. Through his extraordinary effort, Highline is making great strides in our collective journey to ctcLink. Read about his accomplishments on the Paws Up page.
Sixteen people joined Delta Dog for lunch on Friday, October 9. They asked great questions and ctcLink project team members provided great answers, like this one:
Question: Will the Financial Aid Portal still exist after we go live with ctcLink?
Answer: It won’t go away immediately, but it will be phased out for existing students. New students will use ctcLink for financial aid right away.
The next Lunch and Learn with Delta Dog. will be October 30. (Delta Dog will be furloughing with the rest of us on October 16 and presenting at Professional Development Day on October 23.)

Delta Dog and ctcLink team members will present three workshops during Professional Development Day, October 23. You can learn how to get started with ctcLink trainings, see key functions and features impacting faculty, and learn what ctcLink has to offer for staff and faculty advisors.
The clock is ticking. Just 72 working days until Highline goes live with ctcLink on February 8, 2021.
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):
One of the three main working systems — referred to as “pillars” — in the PeopleSoft software that runs ctcLink. Finance (FIN) will support all of our business processing and will replace the Financial Management System (FMS). The other two pillars are Campus Solutions and Human Capital Management.
