This year we will continue using a seniority system within the lottery process. Each student will receive points based on their class year, as outlined below. Eligibility order will be determined first by the total number of points the group has, then the lowest lottery number within the group. This means that the more points a group has, the higher they will be on the eligibility list. The point system is reversed for doubles and suites, making that process “reverse seniority”.
Special Note on Class Year: Your class year will be determined by whatever is in the system on January 24. The lottery application will show you what your class year is when you apply. If you see any problems with your listed class year, you must notify the assignments office by January 24.
