Getting Started & Setting Up Contacts FAQ

Each district/college will have one primary CTE contact who is that district/college’s ‘power user.’ They will be able to set up all of their colleagues’ log-ins and determine what type of access they should have. The power user will have access to all modules within the system; currently only program approval and Perkins grant management is live in The district/college’s power user will be able to assign whether the users should be able to submit programs, modify programs but not submit, or have read-only access to programs, as well as manage access types to their Perkins Grant. Please reach out to this user at your district/institution for access.

New user accounts will receive an automated notification email from a “noreply” address with your log-in information for how to enter Your user name is your work email – hurrah! The first time you log-in might be a little wonky, so please don’t give up.

DO NOT SHARE YOUR LOG-IN PASSWORD. Do you realize that if you share your log-in you are liable for any actions taken by your user account? Think about it, once we have all of the modules housed in the system–if you can access program approvals, Perkins grant funding, CTA funding, etc. through your log-in, then whoever you share the password with will be able to, too!

If you did not receive an automatic notification email with log-in information, you can still go to the website and click the forgot password link to receive a verification code to reset your password.

Make sure the url shows the ‘s’ in https : as in, .

We’ve also noticed that if your browser has a setting on to “Block third party cookies” then you will have issues with your log-in attempts. So, for initial troubleshooting, do check this setting to make sure it is off. We’ve noticed the site works better in Chrome and Firefox, not as well in Safari.

If you need instructions on how to clear your browser cache, we have a brief video here.

When you log on (especially for the first time), sometimes you might be directed to a 404 error page. Click on any link (the home link on that error, the CTE logo, or the menu at the top right) and that should take you out of it.

If you are still having issues, you can submit a technical assistance request via this form.
