Individual Point Total:
On February 25th, the website used to calculate individual point totals will be activated. Please use these point totals for the entire Room Draw process regardless of what building you are hoping to live in next year. If you feel an error has been made in calculating your individual point total (this is quite possible, as some portions of the information are done by hand), it is your responsibility to contact the Office of Residence Life by no later than 5:00 p.m. on Friday, March 8th for Suites applications and 5:00 p.m. on Friday, April 19th for Singles and Doubles Room Draw. After this time, no recalculations will be made. If you are including a person on your suite application or are rooming with a person who is unable to use the website to calculate an individual point total, be sure to contact Residence Life to get that information prior to 5:00 p.m. Friday, March 9th or 5:00 p.m. Friday, April 19th. An individual's point total is calculated in the following manner.
GPA - An individual gets the points of his/her GPA (through Interim 2013) out to the 2nd decimal place. If you have a 3.567 GPA, you get 3.56 points. No rounding up is done.
Class Status - Individuals will receive points for one of the following classifications: 3 points for rising 5th year seniors and rising seniors, 2 points for rising juniors, 1 point for rising sophomores. Rising means that on the day the application is due, you have enough credits earned and being taken to place you in that class as verified by the registrar's office. Anticipated summer classes do NOT apply. Students who will still have freshman status for the upcoming fall get zero points for class status.
Student Conduct Record - Points could be deducted for certain sanctions resulting from violations of University policy during the current academic year or for probation status from last year carried into this year. Sanctions resulting in point loss will be all official warnings, community service or educational projects, loss of privileges, fines, required counseling, probations or suspensions given by the Office of Student Affairs, and/or the Campus Student Conduct Board. Below are examples of points losses by students during previous Room Draws.
