Description/Steps for Resolution

Username Information
Your username is a combination of your First Name, Last Name Initial, and the last four digits of your ctcLink ID number.


For example, a student whose name was Jane Doe and whose ctcLink ID number was 123456789 would have her username created as follows:

  • First name: Jane
  • Last name initial: D
  • Last four digits of ctcLink ID number: 6789

With this information, her completed username would be: JaneD6789

Please Note:

  1. If your first name is hyphenated or has spaces in it, these will be removed. For example, Rae-Ann will become RaeAnn; Mary Beth will become MaryBeth.
  2. The system will use the name you applied to school with. Thus, if you applied to school as Raymond, but go by the name Ray, your account will use Raymond for your name.
  3. If you change any part of your name, please change it first with Admissions and Registration. A few days after you have requested the change, then check in with IT about the name change for your account.
