Faculty Information

Summer Session Enrollment Data

After registration opens, enrollment numbers for each Summer Session class will be updated daily and posted online.

Summer Closure Dates

Campus will be closed and no classes will be held on July 4, to observe Independence Day.

Go/Cancel Decision Process

College Deans will make go/cancel decisions this year, informing RCE of their decision by May 13, June 17, and July 15 for sessions 1-5.

Class Rosters

A class roster for Summer can be viewed at any time via the Faculty Center. Please inform RCE if any students are in your class but not on the roster immediately by email. Please inform RCE if a student misses more than 2 days during the first week by email. This may save the student loss of their enrollment fee in part or wholly.


Once your class fills, students can add themselves to a waitlist through the portal until May 19 and by contacting RCE beginning May 20. If your class has a waitlist, a copy will be provided to you before your class starts. You may also view students on the waitlist by looking at your class roster in the Faculty Center, and changing “Enrollment Status” from “enrolled” to “waiting.” If you want to add students, please contact RCE at or 530-898-6105.

Faculty Teaching Agreements and Pay

Continuing Education will deliver by email Summer Teaching Agreements the week of April 18. Please review and sign the teaching agreement(s) prior to May 6. A signed contract is required prior to teaching.

For Summer Session (self-support), faculty pay is calculated according to Pay Schedule 2357 (Instructional Faculty, Summer Session–Extension) using the following formula:

Faculty Pay Formula for Special Session

For example, if your full time salary is $50,000 / academic year:

$50,000 / 30 = $1,667 x 3 (WTUs) = $5,001.00 pay for the class

Note: Supervision/Internship course-classifications generate WTU based on enrollment, not class units.

Your pay request will be submitted to Payroll within 7 business days of submission of grades.  Payroll takes approximately 10 business days (2 weeks) to process the request, then approximately another 2-3 business days for the check to be available to you.  Your summer session pay may be subject to retirement, social security/Medicare tax, and state and federal taxes. Sick leave will not be accrued during Summer Session per CBA 21.23 e.  Should you have any questions contact the Payroll office, 530-898-6771.

If you’re a non-CSU, Chico instructor, your pay can be requested once your grades have been submitted and the Human Resources office has processed your payroll documents. Faculty new to Chico State are required to successfully complete a Live Scan and complete payroll and personnel documents in the Human Resources Office (Kendall Hall, Room 222, 530-898-6435), including an Oath of Allegiance, prior to the beginning of employment, and must bring proof of identity and eligibility to work in the United States. 

LMS Set Up, Including Syllabus and Text Identification

You are requested to upload your course syllabus and text book requirements starting April 1-May 20.  We will then notify students that starting May 21 they can access the course shell to obtain information on what is required of them for the successful completion of your class.

Please contact your department to place textbook orders by March 18 or at the latest by April 1 according to federal mandate HEOA 2008.

Text Books & Class Materials

Place textbook order by March 18. The Chico State Wildcat Store compiles and displays course information on behalf of Chico State in order to comply with the Higher Education Opportunities Act of 2008. Even if you're using "Zero-Cost Course Materials" Open Educational Resources, or nothing at all, your timely response to the bookstore is required to ensure Chico State's compliance. For more information or to place your order email the bookstore at

Any printed materials needed for your class should be arranged through or prepared by your department office.


Grade rosters will be made available to instructors by the end of the class by session. Latest grade deadline is due by noon on August 19.

Classroom Selection

Whenever possible, we schedule classes that are located in the same building as your office or one you have specifically requested. For room change requests, please email Dana Massetti at
