OSCA 2018-2019 UPPERCLASS CO-OP LOTTERY

Registration for the OSCA 2018-2019 Upperclass Co-op Lottery is now CLOSED, but the following information is still relevant for students on LOA or those who did not get placed into their first-choice co-op.

LOTTERY NOTIFICATION

  • The co-op lottery will be held April 5, 2018.
  • If you are assigned to a co-op at the April 5th lottery, you will be notified via e-mail by April 6th, 4:00pm.

SECURE YOUR FALL ASSIGNMENT

  • You must go to the Wilder Hall lobby and sign an OSCA membership contract and pay a $75 deposit on Sunday April 8, NOON-10:00pm (check or money order only - NO CASH!) to hold your Fall assignment.
  • This mandatory deposit will be deducted from your Fall 2018 bill. No early or late deposit checks will be accepted!
  • If you fail to pay this deposit on April 8th, you will lose your Fall co-op assignment. No exceptions.
  • The deposit is non-refundable after August 1st.

CHANGING YOUR MIND

If you accept a space in a co-op and decide not to return to your co-op assignment, you must notify the OSCA membership secretary as soon as you can.

  • No deposit refunds will be given unless you request in writing by August 1st.

GETTING INTO OSCA AFTER THE LOTTERY

If you entered the upperclass lottery but either did not get into a co-op, or did not get into your 1st choice co-op, and you still wish to become a member of OSCA you must register for the Fall 2018 Wait List at the OSCA web site (http://oberlin.edu/osca).

  • You can retain your lottery number assigned during the upperclass lottery by registering for the Fall 2018 Wait List after 4:00pm April 6 but NO LATER THAN 11:59pm April 8.

ON LEAVE FOR FALL?

There is an extended deadline for students away from Oberlin for Fall 2018. The $75 deposit is NOT required if you will be on leave Fall 2018 since OSCA cannot guarantee you a co-op space for Spring 2019.

  • If you plan to be away for Fall 2018 and want to be a member of OSCA in Spring 2019 you should still register for the upperclass lottery so that you are assigned a lottery number.
  • After the upperclass lottery, in order to keep that lottery number, you must go to the OSCA website and register for the Spring 2019 Wait List NO LATER THAN NOON Sunday, May 20.
  • Be sure to write 0000 as your OCMR# on the Spring Wait List list form so that we know you will be away from Oberlin for Fall 2018.
