Full-Time MBA Program Registration Instructions
Detailed information on Paying Fees, Course Registration, and more for the Full-Time MBA
Winter 2014 Registration Timeline & Overview
RaPS (Registration and Payment System) Features:
- Registration and all GSM adds/drops/course changes are processed in RaPS (and forwarded to SISWEB). Do NOT access SISWEB directly.
- In Manage Schedule, core courses are pre-loaded to your schedule. Previously taken courses do not appear for selection eliminating the need to scroll through redundant course offering.
- Cross registration is included with your home campus course registration and processed automatically after initial registration closes
- Wait lists are available as soon as class fills
- NEW: Student Directory feature. To better serve student collaboration and connections, each student will be asked to update their information as part of the quarterly registration process in RaPS. This information is ONLY available within the GSM (to those with Kerberos authentication) and is not public.

Registration in RaPS transmits to the campus system on an hourly during these times:
Monday – Friday 6:00am to 12 midnight
Saturday – Sunday 10:00am to 6:00pm.
Any registration and payment submitted outside these times are date/time stamped and submitted as soon as the campus system re-opens. Students are enrolled in courses based on the date/time stamp of their registration for the quarter. Within 24 hours of registration, students receive an automated enrollment confirmation email. If a confirmation email is not received, return to RaPS, Manage Schedule and check your status in the Enrollment Status column. Click on the link in that column to define your current enrollment status. Do not verify enrollment in SmartSite.
Cross registration courses may be selected during your initial registration period. Enrollments for these courses do not process until after initial registration closes.
As a reminder, ALL GSM registration activity (adding and/or dropping) must be done in RaPS, NOT SISWEB, prior to adding any non-GSM classes. By entering registration changes directly into SISWEB, students will automatically activate a registration freeze on their accounts. A freeze will also be applied when non-GSM courses are entered into SISWEB prior to the completion of GSM course registration in RaPS. Be advised that it may take in excess of 72 hours to resolve the conflict in both systems.
In RaPS, log in (UCD LoginID and Kerberos passphrase) and update Student Directory information. Proceed to Manage Schedule and select courses you plan to take for the quarter. (Cross registration courses may be selected as well.)
Your account balance is generated after you enroll in courses. Students can view and pay account balances at mybill.ucdavis.edu. You are responsible for paying all fees and other debts by the posted deadlines. No bills are mailed to students. This bill is a statement of funds owed to the university, not your student account that 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).
