RPTA 122 Information
Careers in RPTA
Commercial Recreation (hospitality/tourism management) is one of four emphasis areas in RPTA - a minor in this concentration makes a nice complement to a degree in Business Administration.
Welcome to RPTA 122. Please note that passing the WPJ is requiredbefore registering for RPTA 122. Most sections of RPTA 122 fill very quickly, so register early. Once the seats are gone, sections will not add extra students. The wait list will automatically be handled online through MySacState (individual instructors will not have their own wait lists).
Please be advised:
If you lose your seat for any reason (including failure to pay fees), you will not be automatically re-added to the course.
MySacState wait lists vanish the Friday before classes begin. To ensure your spot on the wait list, print out the wait list the Friday before classes begin. (Again, wait list students will only be added if other students drop the course.)
If you are on the wait list and you must graduate, you are advised to find an alternative writing intensive course. There's a good chance you won't get into RPTA 122. If you are on the wait list and very much want to take 122, please try again for the course at a later semester - we'd love to have you!
This page contains only basic information about RPTA 122. If you have additional questions, please email Dr. Greg Shaw, RPTA 122 Coordinator, or talk to your 122 instructor. (If you have questions regarding the Ropes Course at Sacramento State that are not related to RPTA 122, please contact Peak Adventures.)
RPTA 122 Ropes Dates for Fall 2013
*Because space is limited per Ropes session and because it is most beneficial to attend the Ropes Course with your own class, you cannot switch Ropes Course dates without:
(1) Prior permission from your instructor, and
(2) Prior permission from the instructor of the class you would like to attend Ropes with.
If you simply show up on a date that is not with your scheduled class, you will not be allowed to participate and you will not be given credit by your instructor for having attended. Failure to attend Ropes can result in an "I" for RPTA 122.
Please Note: For the Peak Adventures course, you must register and pay ahead of time at the Peak Adventures office. Money will not be accepted at the course itself.
Please Note: For the Grass Valley course, you must bring cash to the course for payment. Checks will not be accepted.
