When to Submit Your Lottery & Register

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

Lottery & Registration Dates

Lottery Submission Period
October 21 (9:00am) - November 10 (11:59pm)

You will have the opportunity to make your class choices during this period. 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 10, you will have an equal chance (within your cohort) at all classes requested. Upon submission, students will receive an email confirmation of their registration lottery selections. Please retain this email for verification purposes.

Within the registration lottery, we suggest assigning top rank (i.e., primary #1) to your most valued course. The next prioritized course should then be ranked as primary # 2, etc.
