Hello Christina,

In response to your question, so far that has been a pretty clean transition for us because we had the Advising Tool prior to go Live. Anyone who had access to the Advising Tool was loaded to the Advisor Table in ctcLink giving them the required access to Advisor Center. Basically, we didn’t have to go through a process of determining who should and should not have access to Advisor Center because we already had that information in another form through the Advising Tool, so we just copied it over. I’m not sure how helpful that is to you but we could talk it through further.

Dear Colleagues,

For those of you who are up and running on ctcLink, I'm wondering if you have defined the role of an "advisor" on your campus for the purpose of who gets access to the Advising Center in ctclink and at what access level. I'm specifically speaking of professional advisors not teaching for counseling faculty.

Background: The title "advisor" is loosely defined at Edmonds. We have "advisors" in many programs outside of our general academic advising center (e.g, in grant programs like TRiO, Worker Retraining, Opportunity Grant, etc; pre-college areas like IBEST, EDCAP, etc.; Running Start; and the list goes on).

So, I'm wondering if you have defined "advisor" and outlined duties that constitute an advisor for the purpose of ctcLink access and if you would be willing to share your work.

Edmonds College went live with ctcLink on Monday. So far, so good. Our biggest challenge is making sure staff have the appropriate access and access levels to do what they need to do.

Thank you,
Christina Castorena, M.Ed. (she/her/hers)
Vice President for Student Success
