Schedule Builder General Information

  • Schedule Builder is a new web-based class planning and registration tool that will allow you to plan your class schedule and register for classes in the upcoming term all in one place. The beta version is available for use for Spring 2014 term class planning and registration, and we welcome your feedback.
  • As with SISWeb, continuing undergraduate students can find their pass appointment times and any holds that would prevent registration on Schedule Builder. All class planning through Schedule Builder can occur in advance of your pass appointments, and actual class registration activity through Schedule Builder will only be available during your scheduled pass appointments, Open Hours, or Open Registration periods. Graduate students may register for classes using Schedule Builder during any hour registration is permitted for the term.
  • New Undergraduate Students, who did not register during summer Orientation, will have registration information sent to your UC Davis email address.
  • If you are being readmitted or are a new graduate student, your registration information will be sent to your UC Davis email address. Students returning from PELP who have been receiving Financial Aid should make an appointment with a Financial Aid counselor at 530-752-2390.
  • All students are responsible for confirming their enrollments and making any changes by the designated deadlines, and dropping any and all unwanted classes.
  • If you know before the first day of instruction that you will be absent from the first class meeting of a course that you are enrolled in, you are responsible for notifying the instructor of your absence, University of California Standards of Conduct for Students.
  • For assistance using Schedule Builder, see the Help menu provided for basic user information or Contact an Expert by email.

SISWeb General Information

  • SISWeb is also a web-based registration system. You can add or drop courses, place yourself on wait lists, check your class locations and meeting times, order official transcripts, and search for open courses.
  • SISWeb can be used during your scheduled appointment time or after your appointment time during Open Hours. SISWeb is also available to all students during the Open Registration periods following Pass 1 and Pass 2 appointments and during Schedule Adjustment. Undergraduate students should enroll in classes during their assigned appointment times. Graduate students may enroll during any hours of SISWeb operation.
  • All students must enroll in classes, and pay fees and any outstanding balance due by the Student Fee Payment Deadline to avoid being dropped and incurring the late registration fee.
  • Continuing Undergraduate Students log on to SISWeb to check appointment times. Appointment times are available one week before registration begins.
  • All students are responsible for confirming their enrollments and making any changes by the designated deadlines, and dropping any and all unwanted classes.
  • If you know before the first day of instruction that you will be absent from the first class meeting of a course that you are enrolled in, you are responsible for notifying the instructor of your absence, University of California Standards of Conduct for Students.
  • For assistance using SISWeb, students may contact the SISWeb Help Desk at sisweb@ucdavis.edu.

Using SISWeb

Registration Menu

  • Add/Drop Classes: To add a class, enter the Course Reference Number (CRN) for each class you want to add. When you have entered the CRNs of all the classes in which you want to enroll, select Submit Changes. To drop a class, select Drop via the Web from the pull down menu in the Action column. Remember to select Submit Changes after dropping a class.
  • Search for Classes: The Class Search Tool, separate from SISWeb, is available. The Class Search Tool provides real-time class search by CRN, subject, course number, course title, instructor, day of week, time, General Education and Revised General Education course, or whether seats remain open. You can search for open courses using SISWeb.
  • Add/Drop using a Permission to Add (PTA) or Permission to Drop (PTD) number: Use this menu option to register for classes that require a PTA or PTD number. You must request a PTA from the instructor or the department offering the course or a PTD from your Dean's Office.
  • Change Grade Mode and Change Variable Units: Use this menu option to change the grading option or change units for a variable-unit course in which you are enrolled.
  • Student Schedule by Day and Time: Display and print your classes arranged in a grid according to the day and time of each class. Select the term you want to check (it will default to the current term), and then select a class to view the detail schedule.
