Priority Points were sent out on April 3rd to all students who are eligible to participate in the Room Selection process for next year. (Just a reminder, that means students who applied AND deposited by the February 20th deadline received the Priority Points.) There was a second emailing of corrected Priority Points emailed out on Wednesday, April 8th.
We learned a few things from our email pushes:
- About 150 students applied online for the wrong semester. Students who brought this to our attention had their application corrected and received an email with their Priority Point breakdown and totals. We also ran a report to see if there were anymore out there and contacted them to ask if they had applied for the correct semester. Those who responded back that they meant to apply for the Fall had their application amended and received their Priority Points (if they qualified.) All students who applied and deposited on time will be permitted to take part in Room Selection, as long as they applied and deposited on time. We’re working with our colleagues in web devo to get the application fixed so it’s much more easier to select the correct semester.
- Non-scholarship athletes were accidentally not given Priority Points and this was realized first thing on Monday morning. Also we realized a certain population of resident students did not receive credit for some program attendance. Both of these issues were fixed immediately and students who were impacted received updated Priority Point emails on Wednesday.
