Spring 2001 Exam Schedule. The final exam schedule for the current semester is linked to this page. Room assignments for exams will be posted in the main lobby and on the second-floor bulletin board. If an emergency occurs that may prevent you from taking a final exam, you or someone on your behalf should call Chris Matheny (312/906-5271), Boo Choi (312/906-5286), or me (312/906-5282) as soon as possible. If you cannot reach either of us, call the Registrar's office (312/906-5080). Please read Section VII of the Student Handbook, which contains the rules governming exams, exam conflicts, make-up exams, missed exams, and related issues.

Fall 2001 Registration: Changes to Final Schedule.  The Registration Bulletin for Fall 2001, including the final Schedule of Classes, is available outside the third floor cafeteria; an online version is linked to this page. Initial registration is now concluded. To learn what classes you have been admitted to, you must check the registration web site. You may do this by gong to the same site as the one used for initial registration (i.e., go to the Intranet page 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 to learn what classes you have been admitted to.


Business Organizations: The exam for the day section of Business Organizations will be on Wednesday, December 12, at 1:15 (not 8:30).  The time appears correctly on the exam grid accompanying the final schedule, but is listed incorrectly on the schedule itself.

Estates & Trusts: The final schedule correctly lists Estates and Trusts as meeting on Mondays & Wednesdays, 10:40-12:40.  The course grid for the Day courses, however, lists both the correct days and times, and incorrect days and times (Tues./Thurs. 1:55-3:45).  There will only be the one section, on Mondays and Wednesdays.

Summer 2001 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 students to have read the assignments for the first night of class.

Fall 2001 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 3. 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 3 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 (
