GSM Cross Registration Policies and Procedures

GSM Policies and Procedures, Section 2.6.5:  All students can take up to a total of 15 units of cross registration courses 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 Procedure

MBA students can request cross-registration in courses at other GSM campuses under these guidelines.

  • The course fee structure for the Bay Area is different than Sacramento. There is an additional fee of $100/unit (or $300 for 3 units). This course fee differential covers required textbooks, textpaks, meals, refreshments, parking, and other higher fixed costs for each course in the Bay Area program. Optional textbooks are not included in these fixed costs.

The course fee differential will be applied to your MyBill one week prior to the student fee payment deadline.

Administrative Processing

Cross Registration requests are 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
