It is your responsibility to be aware of these deadlines.

Registration Groups

Registration groups are designated to allow students with higher unit totals (and closer to completing their degree) to pay and enroll in courses first. Additional registration groups will follow in descending order of unit totals. All students are notified by email before registration starts the date they are opened for registration. All registration group dates are listed in the registration instructions of each program, respectively.

Group Definitions – Full Time

Reg1 Students who entered in Fall 2012 or earlier
Reg2 Students who entered in Fall 2013

Note: Currently enrolled units are not counted as “completed” units.

If a student in Reg1 fails to pay and register before Reg2 starts registration, they do not receive any “priority” status. All enrollments are based on the date stamp of payment and registration in RaPS.

Group Definitions – Part Time (Sacramento and Bay Area)

Reg1 Students who have completed 42 units or more
Reg2 Students who have completed up to 41 units
Reg3 Students who have completed 0 – 21 units

Note: Currently enrolled units are not counted as “completed” units.

If a student in Reg1 fails to pay and register before Reg2 starts registration, they do not receive any “priority” status. All enrollments are based on the date stamp of payment and registration in RaPS.

As always, if a student requires a particular class or section, we encourage you to pay and register on the first day your registration group is open for the best chance at getting their choice.  Be aware this strategy does not work in every instance based on demand.

Wait Lists

When a class is fully enrolled, RaPS immediately starts a wait list.

Because a student will be automatically enrolled in a place in the course becomes available, students must pay course fees to be wait listed.  Your place on the wait list is based on the date/time stamp of your payment.  If a place in the class is not available as of the first class meeting, you can drop the course and request a full refund with no registration penalty fee.

The instructor cannot change your place on the wait list.

Process for enrollment adjustments, including courses with waitlists

Please note that no enrollment changes are made during the initial registration period. Once the initial registration as closed, course enrollments and waitlists are review by the Associate Dean and academic staff members.

That review is guided by set GSM course enrollment guidelines. For elective courses, the maximum enrollments are based on the number of seats in the assigned classroom or a maximum of 60, whichever is lower of the two. Faculty members may also set a lower enrollment cap for their class based on pedagogical reasons. Within a week of initial registration closing, any adjustments that can be made (e.g. changing room assignments) will be done in an effort to move as many students into their preferred courses as possible.

Because of a variety of factors, it is not always possible to accommodate all students on the wait list. However, our goal is to provide the best educational experience for all students and every decision is made with this in mind.

Non-GSM Units: Adding units to your RaPS schedule and registration process

If a student intends to enroll in a non-GSM course, they are not listed in RaPS. To assure that RaPS and SISWEB synchronize, a student may select the non-GSM course listed in Manage Schedule. This is NOT a list of non-GSM courses available to MBA students, but a place holder in RaPS for enrollment to process accurately. Enter the number of units for the non-GSM course and proceed with finalizing registration.

ADDITIONAL STEP REQUIRED: As with other RaPS registration, it may take up to 24 hours for your registration to process. You will not receive an automated enrollment confirmation from RaPS for a non-GSM course. After 24 hours, your total unit count for the quarter is reflected in SISWEB, login to SISWEB and use the CRN for the non-GSM course, enroll yourself. If you attempt to enroll in SISWEB prior to RaPS submitting your unit total to SISWEB, you will receive an error message: Maximum Units Exceeded, which will prevent you from adding the non-GSM course.

By-passing RaPS entirely and enrolling in SISWEB directly will prevent a student from enrolling in any MBA courses for the quarter. See Registration Process for additional information.

Student Directory

A review/update is required each quarter prior to registration. A few students have experienced difficulty with the Directory feature. If you have updated the Directory for the quarter and the system asks that you update it again rather than allowing to enter RaPS, delete your browser history and login to RaPS again. This allows you to proceed with registration.
