Common Questions

What happened to the information in the HP Legacy system

The ctcLink implementation plan converted all enrollment data for any active student within a six-year (prior to May 2022) period. Personnel and payroll data was only converted for the previous two years.

The HP system was put into read-only mode and is available through the legacy software for a time that is yet to be determined. While staff have access to the data after Go Live, they are unable to alter it in any way. When the new system is stabilized, the legacy system will sunset. The legacy data will be available, however, through as yet to be determined methods for reporting purposes.

What if I'm an employee AND a student

The "tiles" you will see in your ctcLink access correspond to your roles at SPSCC. Important note: the contact information you enter through the "Personal Details" tile in Employee Self Service will override the contact information you enter through the "Profile" tile in Student Self Service.

What if I have a ctcLink ID number for another college

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 SPSCC.

What if I can't submit my time and absence by the payroll deadline

ctcLink is available anytime, anywhere that you have internet access. However, for extenuating circumstance (emergencies, etc.) your supervisor can submit time and absence on your behalf.

What systems did ctcLink replace

Financial Aid System (FAS/FAM): The Financial Aid System that administered and managed financial aid services. This transitioned to PeopleSoft Campus Solutions (CS). 

Financial Management System (FMS): The Financial Management System that administered and managed financial and accounting services. This transitioned to PeopleSoft Financial Management (FIN). 

Payroll/Personnel Management System (PPMS): The Payroll/Personnel Management System that managed the human resources and payroll processing services. This transitioned to PeopleSoft Human Capital Management (HCM). 

Student Management System (SMS): The Student Management System that administered and managed all student and curriculum related business functions. This transitioned to PeopleSoft Campus Solutions (CS). 

Some 3rd party software or homegrown applications that use the data from these back-end systems were also replaced in the process. These include, but are not limited to Degree Audit, Instructor Briefcase, and TLR (time and leave reporting).
