Open University Students
Blackboard Accounts for Open University Students
Instructors may enroll students at any time providing the student has a Blackboard account. Blackboard accounts are created within 8 hours after the Fresno State email account has been activated. If a prospective student has a CURRENT Fresno State email they already have a Blackboard account. All Open University students will automatically be enrolled in Blackboard courses after they officially register and the registration period has ended for all matriculated students.
Please note: If the prospective Open University student HAS NOT ATTENDED Fresno State for MORE THAN THREE YEARS their Blackboard account will need to be reactivated. Please email firstname.lastname@example.org to make this request and include your Name and student ID number.
Please contact the Division of Continuing and Global Education at (559) 278-0333 for more information on this process.
