On February 28, 2022, LWTech moved to a new online system called LionsLink powered by ctcLinksfor Student Services, Human Resources, Business Services. All faculty, staff, and students will use LionsLink. This cloud-based software will provide a set of common, mobile-friendly tools for students and staff to manage college business online, such as enrolling for classes, managing courses, processing payroll and more.
As an initiative of the Washington State Board for Community and Technical Colleges (SBCTC), the new software is called ctcLink—branded at LWTech as LionsLink powered by ctcLink. This software is developed by Oracle and the product is known as PeopleSoft. LionsLink replaces the current 35-plus-year-old administrative system.
There are several online resources students will continue to use.
We're excited about you wanting to apply and join the LWTech experience! Visit the Get Started webpage and follow the steps.
If you have already received a ctcLink ID number from another college, you do not need to activate your account or receive a new number. The ctcLink ID number you already have is what you will use at LWTech.
You can look up your ctcLink ID number using the LionsLink Student ID Look up tool.
It is important to know that you can get the same information from either platform, and both are available online using a Chrome or Firefox browser.
Classic View uses a tile layout and is the dashboard used by student employees to report hours worked, and by any student needing screen reader assistance. All students will activate their account in Classic View.
Student View is a menu navigation that is more intuitive to use.
