Summer/Fall schedule errors and common account activation issues

Please be aware that there are currently errors in some course listings for the Summer and Fall quarters. These errors include incorrect class times, locations and prerequisites for some courses. The college is working to correct these issues as quickly as possible and anticipates a resolution later this week so that you will be able to start registering for Summer and Fall quarter classes next week as scheduled. We will email you again when the errors have been corrected.

Common ctcLink Activation Issues

If you haven’t yet activated your ctcLink account, please do so now. We’ve also noted a few common issues students have experienced during account activation:

  1. Full versus shortened first name — You will need to use the first name you used when you registered at YVC. If your full first name doesn’t work and there’s a shortened name you commonly use, try that.
  2. Hyphenated last names — You will need to use the last name you used when you registered at YVC. If you have a hyphenated last name, try both with and without a hyphen.
  3. Birthdate format — Double-check to make sure you have entered your correct birthdate in the format (MM/DD/YYYY) or use the calendar icon.

If you encounter issues with ctcLink account activation or other technical difficulties, please contact the HelpDesk at 509.574.4717.

Additional Support

ASYVC is hosting student-to-student support sessions to help students learn the basics of ctcLink, including browsing available classes, enrolling in courses and making payments. Sessions are being held daily through Thursday, May 26, from 10 a.m. to 2 p.m. each day. Get help in person at the HUB on the Yakima Campus or at the Student Activity Center on the Grandview Campus or join the support sessions via Zoom.

You also are encouraged to carefully read our step-by-step enrollment help guides and tutorials. This will help you become more familiar with the new registration system.
