All students will use their Wildcat ID to access emails and log into their class in Blackboard Learn. Students not currently enrolled at Chico State will be sent their Wildcat ID in their class registration confirmation email, which should be kept for future reference.


Textbook information is available from the AS Bookstore.

Blackboard Learn

Blackboard Learn is the Chico State Learning Management System. Online classes are delivered using Blackboard Learn and all students can access textbook information and course materials in Blackboard Learn beginning Friday, May 20. Early review of coursework is highly recommended.

Access Your Class Information

It is strongly recommended that you make sure your computer can access your class as soon as possible. Sign into the Chico State Portal and follow the links to Blackboard Learn. If you need assistance with Blackboard Learn, visit the campus' Learning Technologies support pages.


California State University, Chico considers e-mail to be the essential method for communicating official University business with students. Each student is provided with a campus WildcatMail email account. Review the contents of your WildcatMail account on a frequent and regular basis. Communications from your instructors, as well as official notifications from the university regarding enrollment, fees, holds and financial aid will only be sent to your WildcatMail account.

If you do not want to check your WildcatMail account on a regular basis, you can have your emails forwarded to another email address. Forwarding instructions are available in the ITSS Knowledge Base.

Grades & Transcripts

Faculty may submit grades anytime after the class ends and no later than August 19. Grades can be viewed in the Portal.

Official transcripts are obtained from the Students Records Office. For more information, or to request a transcript, visit their website.
