Attention U.S. Students: Purchasing Course Resources

Effective Fall quarter, students in the U.S. may use a vendor of their own choosing to purchase the resources listed on their Course Resource Guides, accessible by clicking the Find Your Textbook button on the library homepage or the Course Overviews and Resources link on the portal.

Required and recommended online resources that are available to students at no cost are listed on Course Resource Guides (available 24/7) or in Blackboard courses (available 3 days prior to the start of class).

The move away from a dedicated online bookstore is a direct result of the evolving textbook marketplace and buying patterns of CityU students.

Important Notice:  Spring Onsite Class Schedule Change

As we continue to monitor the guidelines from government and public health officials related to COVID-19, the University has adjusted the delivery of some CityU classes for spring quarter. As a means to limit in-person contact and support the social distancing that is being called for to suppress the spread of the virus, for the first four weeks of spring quarter (April 1st – May 1st), all class meetings that were scheduled to be held face-to-face will be moving to synchronous, video-conference delivery.

What does this mean? This means if your course has a required face to face meeting(s) during this period, the class meeting(s) will be held as scheduled, but rather than meet in person at a CityU or hosted CityU location (school district, community college), you will be meeting virtually from a location of your choice via video conference. Your instructor will post information on accessing class session(s) in your Blackboard course shell. There will be how-to and other resource materials provided both on the My.CityU.Edu Student Help Center page and in your blackboard shell. It is vitally important that you review the posted information when it becomes available three days prior to your scheduled class start so that you have no issues with attendance in your class.

At this time, there are no plans to completely close campuses. That means that regular services are still available to you both virtually and in person. If you need to access a service such as disability services, counseling, the financial aid office, etc. please call the campus prior to coming in to ensure that appropriate staff are available to work with you.

We will continue to monitor the situation and update you should our plans change.  Our goal is to safely keep you on track for graduation and avoid disruption in your learning. Please check your CityU email and the My.CityU.Edu portal regularly for the latest information from your instructor and the University.
