Your Emails:

  • As of September 13, 2021, any student enrolled in a Fall 2021 course was given a new email (ending in You'll want to:
    • Look up your email
    • Reset your password
    • Check your new email ending in "" regularly; it will be how your instructors and advisors contact you.
    • Do not auto-forward your student email to another email. Unfortunately that feature does not work and you will lose important GRC emails.
  • ctcLink allows students to use a preferred name. As of October, 2021, student email addresses will use your preferred name (if you have entered a preferred name in ctcLink) instead of your primary name. Please use the Email Lookup to find your new email address and continue to use the same password. (You will continue to receive mail sent to your former @student email address).

Login Troubleshooting and Tips:

  • Student email accounts and any associated content are now deleted one year after the last quarter you attend Green River College. Deleted means the account and content of the account are removed and not recoverable. That said, if you re-enroll in a course after your account has been deleted, the same email alias/address will be assigned to you, though you’ll not have any of your old emails or contents of your old OneDrive available.
  • If you experience trouble accessing your account, first try clearing you browser's cache. If using Internet Explorer, Edge, Google Chrome, or Mozilla Firefox you can quickly clear cache with a keyboard shortcut. While in your browser, press Ctrl + Shift + Delete simultaneously on the keyboard to open the appropriate window.  Be sure and close/quit the browser and restart it after clearing the cache and cookies.

New Email Generation Process

Timeline, as of May 20, 2024:

  • Old process, prior to May 20, 2024: Student email address were generated after a student had enrolled in class.
  • New process: Student email addresses are generated upon successful admission (application is processed).
Online Admission Application Portal account creation  Verification email sent to email address used to set up account  immediate 
Submit Application  Confirmation of submitted application sent to email on application/account  immediate
ctcLink ID number creation  No notification is sent, student will show up in ctcLink  Upon application submission, immediate  
Application Processed  Formal Admission Acceptance Letter sent to preferred email, includes ctcLink ID number  8:30 p.m., same day application was processed 
8:30pm, same day application was processed  Student email account creation  Morning after application was processed 
Student loaded into EAB Navigate & Canvas  No notification is sent  Overnight after application was processed, Approx. 5 a.m. 
Getting Started Steps email  Sent to student email address, from Navigate  2 p.m. the day after application is processed 

The new email generation process occurred for all students who had their admission processed April 1, 2024, and after. If a student applied prior to April 1, 2024, and has not yet enrolled, they would not have a student email address. Once they enroll, they will get one. No need to reapply for this purpose.

From here out, the email address is generated upon successful admission (application is processed).
