Click on the link in the column for additional information on your current 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.
All GSM registration activity (adding and/or dropping) must be done in RaPS, DO NOT ACCESS 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.
Before entering the registration system, you will be asked to update your Student Directory information. It is recommended that students not use a mobile device when accessing RaPS as it is not mobile-optimized.
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.) Proceed to Pay for Courses.
UC Davis: SISWEB (MyBill) Student Bill Overview
UC Davis assess fees generally one month prior to the term’s payment deadline and then occur on a nightly basis. Fees are not assessed immediately upon enrollment.
After enrolling in courses and fees have been assessed, students can view their outstanding account balance using mybill.ucdavis.edu. MyBill account balances and activity are updated in real-time throughout the day and any payments from the Cashier’s Office are posted to the student account at 6:00 p.m. (PST) nightly.
Please note that the MyBill statement is a monthly statement; it is only updated on the 22nd day of each month. Students must be enrolled in courses by the GSM Initial Registration deadline to have a MyBill statement generated BEFORE the Student Fee Payment deadline.
This bill is a statement of funds owed to the university, not your student account.
Refunds are processed by the Student Accounting Office weekly. Any questions should be directed to Student Accounting.
