Full-Time MBA Program Cross Registration Instructions Fall 2014

Students may select cross registration courses during the initial registration period.

 In RaPS, select courses in Manage Schedule and proceed to Register for Courses. Cross registration does not process until after the initial registration period closes.

Cross Registration Deadlines

August 28  Initial registration closes
August 29 Cross registration processes

Note:  Home location students receive priority and when initial registration closes, there must be space available in the course for registration request to process.

Cross Registration Policies and Procedures

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, given the following conditions:

Sacramento Courses: If you would like to take a Sacramento course, there is no additional fee. Only textpaks (if required) are included in the course fee.

Bay Area Courses: If you would like to take a course in the Bay Area MBA Program, the course differential fee is $100/unit ($300/3 units). The fee includes required textbooks, textpaks, meals, parking and other higher fixed costs. Optional textbooks are not included.

Order your books using our online textbook form. Review textbook and textpak ordering instructions here. All cross registration enrollment must be confirmed prior to ordering textbooks.

Allow 5 to 7 business days from the time you submit the order to receive your books.

If you have questions or concerns regarding textbooks, please contact Caroll Sandifor, Bay Area Instructional and Operations Manager.

Administrative Processing

Cross Registration is 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 registration.

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.
