If a confirmation email is not received within 24 hours, return to RapS, Manage Schedule and check your status in the Enrollment Status column. Click on the word in that column for additional information on your current status. Do not verify enrollment in SmartSite.

Core Course Waivers
All MBA students are required to complete core courses during their matriculation at the GSM. Under very specific guidelines, you can waive (or test out) these courses. If you waive/test out of a course, you would replace those units with an elective course. The GSM Registrar can provide appropriate elective course options as not all electives are open to first-year, first-quarter students. If you waive out of a core course, you may drop it in September.
UC Davis: SISWEB (MyBill) Student Bill Overview
Student Bill Available: August 25
UC Davis assess fees generally one month prior to the term’s payment deadline and then occur on a nightly basis. Fees are not assessed immediately upon enrollment.
After enrolling in courses and fees have been assessed, students can view their outstanding account balance using MyBill. MyBill account balances and activity are updated in real-time throughout the day and any payments from the Cashier’s Office are posted to the student account at 6:00 p.m. (PST) nightly.
Please note that the MyBill statement is a monthly statement; it is only updated on the 22nd day of each month. Students must be enrolled in courses by the GSM Initial Registration deadline to have a MyBill statement generated BEFORE the Student Fee Payment Deadline.
This bill is a statement of funds owed to the university, not your student account, which will include financial aid disbursements.
If you are expecting a financial aid disbursement for part or all of your fees, it is generally disbursed to your student account 2-3 days prior to the fee payment deadline for the quarter (provided above).
Important information about your Student Health Insurance Plan (SHIP)
As a UC Davis student, you are required to have health insurance. UC Davis provides a major medical Student Health Insurance Plan (SHIP) to you and charges for this coverage are automatically added to your student account unless you request a waiver. You may waive SHIP if you have comparable health insurance.
SHIP coverage for summer starts when you arrive in August, and the SHIP fee for summer is $998. The 2014-2015 quarterly fees for SHIP (fall, winter and spring) are $1,144 per quarter, $3,432 for the year.
2. Keep coverage for both summer and fall — You will automatically be enrolled and do not need to do anything.
3. Request a waiver for Summer, but keep coverage for Fall — email Todd Atwood, UC Davis Insurance Services supervisor, with your name, your program name and your student ID no later than August 20 and let him know that you have other health insurance coverage and do not need the summer coverage. Email address — email@example.com or firstname.lastname@example.org.
4. Keep Summer coverage, but request a waiver for fall — Submit a waiver application online after August 20, but before September 15.
To prepare you for your job search and strengthen your leadership potential, you will engage in a series of workshops, activities and assignments—in groups, in small teams and individually. Sessions will prepare you to present yourself effectively, create your Internship Action Plan, and craft your Leadership Development Plan. Building industry relationships and expanding your professional connections will be a recurring theme throughout the course.
This course spans your first year and focuses on the critical concepts and actions needed to secure your summer internship, and lays the foundation for your long-term career success. The subsequent LCD course in your second year will build upon this foundation while shifting the focus to your initial post-MBA position.

The two elements to the seminar—Career Development and Leadership Development—are equally critical to your overall success:
The Career Development Seminar focuses on career exploration and development designed to help you structure your internship search as well as develop your readiness to present yourself in a variety of ways—in writing, in-person, on the telephone, through email, and through social media. This course will enhance your ability to secure a rewarding internship and full-time job in your career area of choice.
The professional workplace is extremely competitive, and your success is dependent upon your personal work ethic and commitment to be a candidate of choice for your targeted employers. We see this as a collaboration where you drive your success and we provide resources, access and expertise.
The Leadership Development Program consists of four components: the Executive Challenge simulation, the Leadership Practices Inventory assessment, the Leadership Development Plan, and the Leadership Workshop Series.
The Executive Challenge is a daylong leadership simulation that applies leadership acumen, communication skills, and decision-making ability in intense and unique ways.
The Leadership Practices Inventory is a 360 assessment, completed anonymously by former colleagues and peers. The results measure five behaviors and help identify areas for growth—modeling the way, inspiring greatness, challenging the process, enabling others, and encouraging the heart.
An executive coach leads a workshop on creating a personal Leadership Development Plan. Once you have created you own plan, you will meet individually with the coach to discuss and review it.
We will offer nine hands-on, experiential workshops based on the five LPI behaviors. You will participate in a minimum of five of these highly interactive workshops.
Career Seminar Objectives
This course spans your MBA studies and moves you through the career continuum, covering career direction, building connections, self-assessment, presenting yourself, and industry research.
Upon successful completion of the program, you will be ready to:

Develop your career action plan and manage your career.
