Fall 2015 Course Information

Weighted Lottery for Required Specialization Courses

Wagner has a lottery process for most high-demand required specialization courses.  The Fall 2015 lottery will be conducted via Albert.

At the start of registration on Monday, April 20, all weighted lottery courses will be artificially closed but students will be able to add themselves to the waitlist. Once you add yourself to a lottery course waitlist, you have entered the lottery for that course. All students who add themselves to the waitlist by the 9:00 am on Monday, April 27 deadline will be considered for seats in the course. (It is a student's responsiblity to add themselves to their chosen lottery course waitlist and not leave the course in the "shopping cart.") Your position on the waitlist has no effect on your chances of entering the course. If you intend to have a back-up course on your schedule, you must use the Course Swap function (see the Student Registration section on the NYU Registrar's website for detailed registration instructions).

Selection for seats in the lottery courses will be based on weighted factors, particularly whether the course is a requirement for students’ specializations and how many semesters students have remaining at Wagner.

All students who do not earn a seat in the course lottery will be placed on the course waitlist.
