When to Submit Your Lottery & Register

After you register, it is your responsibility to check your My Academic Progress to ensure that your status is recorded accurately and you know your graduation requirements.

Lottery & Web Registration Dates

Web Lottery Submission Period
October 12 (9:00am) - November 1 (11:59pm)

You will have the opportunity to make your class choices during this period via the Web. If you do not have online access at home, you can use the Stern computer labs or the Business Center, located in the lobby of KMC. For your convenience, terminals can also be found on the first, third, fourth and sixth floors of KMC.

We encourage students to submit selections early. While there is no advantage in submitting your selections earlier or later, we urge you not to wait until the last day. As long as you submit your requests on or before November 1 you will have an equal chance (within your cohort group) at all classes requested.

Within the registration lottery, we suggest ranking your most valued class as primary #1, second most valued class as primary #2, etc.
