FALL 2014 REGISTRATION DEADLINES & INSTRUCTIONS
Registration and Payment System (RaPS)
GSM Students may accomplish their GSM registration actions by accessing the GSM Registration and Payment System (RaPS).
GSM Registration actions include registering, adding, and dropping a course. These changes are processed in RaPS and then forwarded to SISWEB. DO NOT ACCESS SISWEB DIRECTLY.
In order to register for courses, students need their personal UC Davis Login ID and Kerberos pass phrase.
- Reg Group 1 Opens (Fall 2013 entering students or prior) August 14
- Reg Group 2 Opens (Fall 2014 entering students) August 5
Registration in RaPS transmits to the campus registration system on an hourly basis during the following time blocks:
Monday – Friday 6:00 AM to 12 AM Midnight
Saturday – Sunday 10:00 AM to 6:00 PM
NOTE: Any registration and payment submitted outside of 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. Expect to receive an automated enrollment confirmation email within 24 hours of registration (See Troubleshooting Registration below).
Unit totals are limited to 12 units through the initial registration deadline.
Unit totals increase to 16 on August 29, at 12 Noon.

Troubleshooting the Registration Process
When should I receive my enrollment confirmation email?
If a registration confirmation email is not received, then return to RaPS, go to Manage Schedule and check your status in the Enrollment Status column. Click on the link in that column to define your current enrollment status. NEVER verify enrollment in SmartSite.
When do I select my cross registration courses?
Cross registration courses may be selected during your assigned registration period during initial registration. Enrollments for these courses do not process until after initial registration closes.
When should I add non-GSM courses to my schedule?
ALL GSM registration activity (including adding and/or dropping) must be done in RaPS, NOT SISWEB. Adding GSM courses must be done prior to adding non-GSM courses. Entering registration changes directly into SISWEB will result in automatic registration freeze. 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.
How do I log in to the RaPS system?
In RaPS, log in (UCD Login ID and Kerberos passphrase) and update Student Directory information first. Proceed to Manage Schedule and select courses you plan to take for the quarter (cross registration courses may be selected as well).
How do I view my account balance and UC registration payment records?
Your account balance is generated after you enroll in courses. Students can view and pay account balances at mybill.ucdavis.edu. Students 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.
When do I receive my financial aid disbursement?
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 each quarter. Please refer to the “Payment Deadline” above.
