    be on lookout for

    The university releases its undergraduate forms in the month of april, so be on the look for it during that time.

    Has the italicized phrase been used correctly here?

    Yes, assuming 'look' was a typo for 'lookout'.

    Re: be on lookout for

    For the interest of learners, "in the month of April" is tautologous. It's not wrong but there is no reason why it couldn't have said "... releases its undergraduate forms in April ...".
    Remember - if you don't use correct capitalisation, punctuation and spacing, anything you write will be incorrect.

    Since the word 'forms" is used, the pronoun at the end should probably be "them" instead of "it".
