Draw Order and Class Rank

Once students have registered for class, selected a roommate and returned the room draw application card, they will be entered into the room drawing.   

Draw order is determined by class rank - students with senior class rank draw first, juniors second and sophomores third. Within each class, draw order is determined by a random selection of the room draw application cards returned.   

Class rank is determined by the number of credit hours a student has passed plus the hours the student is currently taking. Summer credit hours will not be included in the determination. Class ranks for draw order will be based on whole year standings only. For example, fifth year students do not draw before seniors, and so on. Students with a minimum of:   

  • 88 semester hours will have senior class rank
  • 58 semester hours will have junior class rank
  • 27 semester hours will have sophomore class rank


Note: During room draw, students will go through the process with whichever roommate's draw number is called first.   
   

Everyone Needs to Be There
All roommates must be present for room draw. Students who are unable to attend must complete a room draw absentee form. Students who do not complete this form and are absent will lose their place in the draw order along with their anticipated roommate(s). Absentee forms will be available in the Student Life Office or one can be placed in your campus mailbox. If you need an absentee form mailed to you, please request one by emailing Studentlife@bluffton.edu.
