Welcome to Spring HSSP!

Welcome to the Spring HSSP website. This page will guide you through Spring HSSP's online registration process. If you have any questions not answered in the page below or the FAQs linked at the bottom of this page, please email spring-hssp@mit.edu.


Next Deadline: Lottery results are expected to be released tonight via email to registered students. The Schedule Adjustments phase of registration will open soon; check back for an exact date.


No Parents Past This Point, Please! We strongly encourage our students to exercise independence when selecting classes and contacting us with questions.


1Bookmark this page. You'll need to return here for instructions throughout the registration process.
2Create an Account. If you already have an ESP account, log in. Otherwise, create one now! Here's how:
  • Go to esp.mit.edu/myesp/register and fill out basic information about yourself. You'll be asked to choose a username and password that you'll use to log in. Accounts are permanent, so you don't have to create a new one every time you attend an ESP program.
  • Next, you will be asked to check your email account for a message containing a confirmation link. Wait for this message to arrive (it might take a minute), then click the link.
  • Clicking the confirmation link will take you to a login screen. Enter the username and password you just chose to continue.
  • Finally, you'll be asked for more detailed profile information.
When you're done, return to this page. Note: you must use a student account, not a parent account, to register for Spring HSSP!
3Enter the Class Lottery.

Space in popular classes is limited, so we run a lottery to determine who gets these seats. Entering the class lottery is the best way of ensuring a full schedule at Spring HSSP. Be sure to read the directions carefully. Preferences were due at 11:59 PM on February 13th, after which we'll run the lottery algorithm, which attempts to place students into classes fairly based on your rankings.

Note: before entering the class lottery, you will need to double-check that your profile is up to date and fill out a medical information form.
Questions? See our FAQ.
4Review Your Classes. Results from the class lottery will be released the evening of February 14th.

You will be able to review the classes you received in the lottery and see the list of classes with open space. Then you will be able to change your schedule, dropping any classes you don't want and joining any with free space on a first-come, first-served basis.

5Is it Spring HSSP yet? Spring HSSP will be run from February 24th to April 7th, excluding March 17th. More information will be sent out by email and posted on this site closer to this date.
