- The new schedule does not change the FirstLink colleges’ ctcLink go-live date, which remains as August 2014 for Tacoma and Spokane colleges.
- It also doesn’t change Wave 1. The same 7 college districts are in Wave 1, and their go-live date is still May 2015.
- The change is in waves 2 and 3—those have become 12-month waves each, going live in May 2016 and May 2017.
- Wave 4 has been eliminated. Instead, colleges from wave 4 have been moved into waves 2 and 3
The ctcLink project team is in the process of scheduling Wave Kickoff webinars for each group of wave colleges (and SBCTC). Wave 1 is already scheduled for October and waves 2 and 3 will be scheduled for Dec and February, respectively. These webinars are designed to assist college teams and SMEs gain a better understanding of the process, timing and commitment that will be required for ctcLink, along with providing tools and tips for success along the way.
