Davis MBA – Cross Registration Instructions
Instructions and deadlines for cross registration - Winter 2014

To Cross Register: In RaPS, select courses in Manage Schedule and proceed to Register. Cross registration does not process until after the initial registration period closes.
February 25: Initial registration closes
February 26-27: Cross registration processes
Reminder: Home location students receive priority and when initial registration closes, there must be a space available in the course for cross registration requests to process.
GSM Policy on Cross Registration
GSM Policies and Procedures, Section 2.6.5: All students can take up to a total of 15 units of cross registration courses during their matriculation at the GSM. Not all courses are taught in all locations and students are advised to make cross registration requests judiciously with this in mind.
Cross Registration Process
MBA students can request cross-registration in courses at other GSM campuses under these guidelines:
- Sacramento Courses – If you would like to take a course in Sacramento, there is no additional fee.
- Bay Area Courses – If you would like to take a course in the Bay Area (San Ramon), the course differential fee is $100/unit. This fee covers required textbooks, textpaks, meals, parking, and other higher fixed costs for each course in the Bay Area program; optional textbooks are not included. You order your books using our online textbook form. All cross registration enrollment must be confirmed prior to you ordering textbooks. Allow 5 to 7 business days to receive books from the time you submit the order. If you have questions or concerns, please contact Caroll Sandifor, Bay Area Instructional & Operations Manager.
- Administrative processing:
o Cross Registration enrollments are processed through RaPS after the close of initial registration. As with all registration, cross registration enrollments are prioritized based on the date/time stamp of a student’s payment. Course fees are applied directly to your student account and must be paid in full prior to the start of instruction for the quarter.
- After initial registration closes, cross registration processing begins. Within 24 hours, once it has been verified that space is available in the course, you will receive an automated enrollment confirmation email.
