Sacramento MBA Program Cross Registration Information Winter 2015

Students may select cross registration courses during the initial registration period.

To Cross Register: In RaPS, select courses in Manage Schedule and proceed to Register for Courses. Cross registration does not process until after the initial registration period closes.

Cross Registration Deadlines

December 3  Initial registration closes
December 4 Cross registration processes

Note:  Home location students receive priority and when initial registration closes, there must be space available in the course for registration request to process.

Cross Registration Policies and Procedures

See 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 Procedures

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

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.
