Why is this change happening?Expand ContentCollapse Content

ctcLink: With the arrival of ctcLink and the ctcLink ID, the SBCTC has done away with the use of SIDs and PINs as a means to identify and authenticate students and staff alike, effective Spring quarter 2021.


FERPA Compliance: As a result, the college is required to come up with a replacement way for students to log into Edmonds technology resources using a new type of username that is also FERPA compliant.


Convenience to the Student: Additionally, this requires us to provide ways for students to change a password, reset a forgotten password, or unlock their network account, both with and without Help Desk assistance, so students are prevented from being unable to take classes because they can’t log into anything (e.g. Canvas, Google, etc.)

Your Triton ID is what you will use to access Edmonds College resources including your Student Email (Gmail), Google Account (Drive, Docs, etc.) EC Chromebooks, and more. To obtain your Triton ID, go to the Triton ID Lookup Tool and follow instructions to activate your Triton ID.
