Student Online Sign-Up FAQs
A. The routine does not work with certain firewall and proxy server situations. Firewalls and proxy servers change the address of the page you are viewing. The program needs to make sure certain pages are read, and changing the page address prevents the program from recognizing it. Try signing up from a computer in another location, or you can come to the RSF and signup in person, or at the computers in the lobby.

A. The system checks to make sure you are eligible for the rate. You are eligible if you are: registered for the current semester, enrolled in the minimum number of units, fees current, and no registration blocks at the time of signup. Note: being on a waitlist does not count as being enrolled in that class. We don’t know which of the above conditions is blocking your eligibility. Please check with the Registrar’s Office.
Q. I checked with the Registrar’s Office on my eligibility, and they say I am eligible. Why can’t I sign up?
A. The Registrar’s Office has access to your data in real time. The data Rec Sports gets is only updated once per day. Please check back in a day or so to make sure your data is downloaded from the campus.
Q. My P.E. instructor told me to sign up and said I was eligible for a fee waiver. But the program is asking me to approve the $10 CARS charge?
A. Only classes that meet in the RSF are fee-waived courses, so if the program is asking you for the $10 it may be because your class is not in the RSF. Also, until you are enrolled in a course marked as a fee waived course, the program – both online and in-person – will charge you for your membership. The campus does not record “waitlist” as officially enrolled.
A. Was your membership fee waived when you signed up, because you were enrolled in a course marked as fee waived? Have you since dropped that course? This situation causes your fee waived membership to immediately expire. If you paid the membership fee, please see the clerk at the Cal Rec Club desk.
