Many Bryn Mawr students chose Bryn Mawr in part because of its relatively small class size and emphasis on discussion and active learning. Setting limits on class size means setting limits on class enrollment, and this sometime requires course lotteries after preregistration has closed. Information about enrollment limits and the criteria for course lotteries is listed in the TriCo Course Guide descriptions of individual classes. Please keep the following in mind:
For those limited enrollment classes that do require them, lotteries are conducted at some point between the end of preregistration and the beginning of the subsequent semester.
Haverford's lottery procedures may differ slightly from Bryn Mawr's; see the Haverford registrar's website for details. In almost all cases, Bryn Mawr and Haverford students have equal access to courses on the other campus. However, Bryn Mawr students are not given priority at Swarthmore and Penn and are not included in lotteries. If a course at Swarthmore or Penn goes to lottery, it is closed to Bryn Mawr students.
Dorms open for returning students at 9:00am
