Bay Area Part-Time MBA Cross Registration Information Summer 2014

Students may select cross registration courses during their registration period.

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

May 27:  Initial registration closes
May 28: Cross registration processes

Reminder:  Home location students receive priority and when initial registration closes, there must be a space available in the course.

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 course 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:

  • The course fee structure for Sacramento is different than for the Bay Area. If you take a course in Sacramento, your course fee is reduced by the $100 per unit Course Differential Fee. RaPS automatically calculates this differential fee when you pay for courses.

Sacramento fee structure: textpaks are included. Textbooks, parking, meals, refreshments and other costs are not included.

If you paid the full amount for a Bay Area course and are changing to a cross registration course, a refund will processed during the third week of the quarter.

  • 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 payment.
    • 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.
After You Are Enrolled

Sacramento Course Information

Textbooks, parking, meals, and other costs are your responsibility.  Textbooks are available from the UC Davis Medical Center Bookstore.

Allow 5-7 business days from the time you are enrolled for the GSM Office of Project Resources to provide password access to textpaks.

Directions (including parking information) to the UC Davis-Sacramento Education Building

Key card information for the UC Davis-Sacramento Education Building:
The Education Building requires your access/card badge for entry to the building and to the GSM Office after hours.  These keycards function as your ID Badge that is required because the building is part of a medical campus. Once your cross registration enrollment is confirmed, the GSM administration will take care of having a security badge created for you.  You will be contacted by Rodney Alexander when your card is ready and when you can pick it up.  Please be aware that this process can take up to 2 weeks.

Information returned from the instructor will be available at the GSM front desk at Sac Ed Bldg.  Students only have a mailbox at their home campus.
