Registration Process

There are multiple steps to the registration process.

Registration in RaPS transmits to the campus system on an hourly basis during these times:
Monday – Friday 6:00a.m. to 12 midnight
Saturday – Sunday 10:00a.m. to 6:00p.m.
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 of their payment/registration for the quarter. Within 24 hours payment, 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 the column for additional information on your current status. Do not verify enrollment in SmartSite.

As a reminder, ALL GSM registration activity (adding and/or dropping) must be done in RaPS, NOT SISWEB. By entering registration changes directly into SISWEB, students will automatically activate a registration freeze on their accounts. Be advised that it may take in excess of 72 hours to resolve the conflict in both systems.

1. Manage Schedule

In RaPS, log in (UCD LoginID and Kerberos passphrase) and select courses in Manage Schedule. Proceed to Pay for Courses.

Core Course Waivers
All MBA students are required to complete core courses during their matriculation at the GSM.  Under very specific guidelines, you can waive these courses.  If you waive a course, you would replace those units with an elective course.  The GSM Registrar can provide appropriate elective course options as not all electives are open to first-year first-quarter students.  If you waive out of a core course, you may drop it in September.

2. Pay for Courses – All fees must be paid prior to enrolling in courses*

By Credit Card
By “Temporary” Financial Aid
By Employer Letter of Credit (LOC)**
By Check or Money Order

*ENROLLMENT DEPOSIT AND PAYING FEES
Your $1,500 Enrollment Deposit is automatically credited to your account.

**ENROLLMENT DEPOSIT AND LETTER OF CREDIT
A letter of credit (LOC) can be submitted to pay for a student’s six fall quarter units.  Your enrollment deposit is specifically to hold your place in the UC Davis MBA Program and is non-refundable.  All students are required to pay this deposit and there is no exception.  If you do not enroll, your employer is not obligated to pay.  When you enroll, we will credit the $1,500 deposit toward your student account. Once we have received payment from your employer (usually November), you are eligible for a refund.  If you do not enroll or withdraw from the program, you forfeit the $1,500 deposit.

REGISTRATION PENALTY FEE

You will incur a $250 registration penalty fee, if:
– you have not met both the initial payment and registration deadlines.
– you file the non-registration form after the initial payment/registration deadline.
– you request to add and/or drop a course after the final course change deadline*.
– you have not met the posted candidacy form deadline for graduation.

*Any registration request made after the final course change deadline is an exception, regardless of when the first course meeting is.  If the exception is approved, you are assessed the $250 registration penalty fee.
