Procedures and Resources

Summer Session faculty procedures and resources can be found below.

On this page:

Blackboard & Canvas

Blackboard will no longer be available after the Spring 2019 semester. Canvas will be the sole learning management system for Summer Session 2019. Canvas training sessions are available online.

Classroom Access (Keys)

Most of the classrooms on campus will be unlocked by the University Police department if a class is scheduled. Rooms with specialized equipment, such as computer or science labs, may have different unlocking requirements. Please also note that rooms in the Peters Business Building are not unlocked by University Police. Please take note of your room assignment in the MyFresnoState Faculty Center and contact your department office at least six weeks prior to the start of your class to request a key, if needed.


Per campus policy, course evaluations are handled by the department offices. Please contact your department office for more information about evaluations during Summer Session.


Please submit all class grades through MyFresnoState within one week of the class end date. Contact the Summer Session Coordinator if you are having trouble accessing your grade book.

Permission Numbers

Continuing and Global Education will automatically generate 10 permission numbers for each class, which can be found in your Faculty Center. You may request that an entire class be restricted with permission numbers on the course proposal form. 

Permission numbers are valid until online enrollment is closed for your class. Contact the Summer Session Coordinator if you have any questions or want to request more permission numbers.


Textbooks for Summer Session may be ordered from the Kennel Bookstore. The tentative deadline is April 1st, 2019. You should follow all required deadlines to designate zero-cost course materials for summer classes. Contact the Kennel Bookstore Course Materials department at 559.278.4278 with any questions.
