ctcLink for Students

Moving to ctcLink

On May 9 Yakima Valley College launched a new student self-service portal and mobile app that provides an improved user experience. Your college services will be easier to navigate and use.

As we prepare, many services for students will be closed or have reduced hours in the weeks to come. We appreciate your patience as we work toward creating a better student experience.

Activate Your ctcLink Account

Common ctcLink Activation Issues

Please be aware of 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 — 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 or email helpdesk@yvcc.edu.

Our Student Tutorials will help you learn how to:

  • Manage Classes – Class Enrollments and registrations
  • Financial Aid – Manage financial aid awards and applications.
  • Academic Records – View past classes with grades and get unofficial transcripts.
  • Profile – View or update personal information.
  • And more!

Please note: Classes will operate as usual in Canvas. For assistance with IT questions related to student email, Canvas, Microsoft Office applications, and more, please contact the YVC Help Desk.
