Lottery Registration

2L and 3L students register for Fall and Spring semester courses through Lottery Registration, an automated process that randomly assigns students to available classes based on prioritized lottery bids. 3L students have priority in the lottery course-assignment process. Lottery registration for Fall semester generally takes place in mid-April; registration for Spring semester generally takes place in mid-November.

Students will receive an email notice from the Registrar’s Office when the lottery process begins with instructions on how to access the lottery. w: Current Students > Lottery
