To learn what classes you have been admitted to, you must check the registration web site on or after Wednesday, May 10. You may do this by gong to the same site as the one used for initial registration (i.e., go to and click on “Web Registration System”). Registering for a class during the initial registration period is no guarantee that you will be admitted to the class – you must check the web site on or after Wednesday, May 10 to learn what classes you have been admitted to.

Summer 2000 Initial Reading Assignments.  If you are enrolled in a summer session class, you should periodically check the second floor bulletin board for initial reading assignments.  The summer session is short, and many instructors expect student to have read the assignments for the first night of class.

Fall 2000 Initial Reading Assignments and Course Books  Reading assignments for the first week of the Fall semester will be posted on the Chicago-Kent Intranet page ( no later than Friday, August 4. If you will not have Internet access in August, please notify us that you would like a paper copy mailed to you by sending me an e-mail (SSOWLE) with the address where you can be reached over the summer; or fill out the bottom portion of a form that will be available at my office and outside the third floor cafeteria. Assignments not received by August 4 will be posted on the second-floor bulletin board as they are received. 

You may ask the bookstore to hold your Fall course books for you when they arrive, or for an extra fee you may request that the books be mailed to you over the summer.  If you would like to take advantage of either of these options, stop by the bookstore before you leave, or call the bookstore at 312/906-5605.  In addition, you may order your course books over the web by clicking on the bookstore link on the Chicago-Kent Intranet page (
