Software malfunction affecting fall financial aid - Friday, September 4

There has been a glitch in the new software system the state is using for handling financial aid records. Unfortunately, this has slowed down the enrollment process for many students, as well as the response times in the Office of Financial Aid. The college is aware of the issue and working hard to resolve it as quickly as possible. 

In some cases, students are getting messages about problems with their tuition and getting dropped for non-payment. Please be aware that the Office of Financial Aid has extended the tuition payment deadline for students who have completed their financial aid application. If you see a "hold" on your tuition record in ctcLink—that's a good thing. It means you will NOT be dropped from classes for non-payment. 

Due to the high volume of students trying to reach the Office of Financial Aid, as well as the work required to resolve the problem with the software, you may experience significant delays in trying to contact Financial Aid staff. Additionally, the office's Zoom room is often at capacity. Please know that staff are working as hard as they can to serve students in the order in which they contacted the office.

If, after today, you receive notifications about tuition and drop for non-payment, and you believe you should have a tuition payment hold due to having Financial Aid eligibility, please contact Kayla Escott at

On behalf of the college, we are sorry this software glitch is causing additional stress at an already stressful time for so many. Again, we are working hard to resolve these issues as quickly as possible and will provide updates as they become available.

Water Station 1 construction project and impacts on the main campus

The City of Vancouver is beginning Phase 2 of its Water Station 1 construction project, located to the north of Clark College’s main campus. This construction, which is anticipated to continue through summer 2022, will affect the main campus in several ways that we want you to be aware of:

Though the City and its contractors will work to reduce impacts where possible, some disruption—including noise, dust, tree removal, and heavy-equipment traffic—is inevitable. The college will work with the City to mitigate its effect on the college community as much as possible.

While this construction may create some inconvenience for our community here at the college, it is important to the future sustainability of the greater Vancouver community. Water Station 1 is the city’s largest source of drinking water. For more information about the project, visit Questions about the construction project can be directed to
