Spring 2002 Registration. To learn what classes you have been admitted into, you must check the registration web site on or after Tuesday, November 27.

Correction: If you plan to add Employment Relationships with Professor Leader during the add/drop period, please note the following correction:  the course number is 391-051 (not 365-051).  If you have already registered for the course, you do not need to do anything further; we have made the necessary corrections in the system.

New Policy on Adding Classes.  Under a new policy adopted by the faculty, you may add an open course without special permission until the end of the first week of Spring classes; during the second week, however, you may add an open course only with permission of the instructor. You may not add a course after the second week of the semester.

Fall 2001 Exams.

Exam Schedule.  The final exam schedule for the current semester is linked to this page. The Student Handbook requires that you take your finals at the times scheduled, even if you have two exams in a row, or one at 6:00 p.m. and another at 8:30 a.m. the next morning.  Absent extraordinary circumstances, the only exception is if you have three exams scheduled consecutively (which rarely happens) or two exams scheduled at the same time.

Exams on Computer Sign-Up.  The deadline for signing up to take your exams on computer is Friday, November 30.  You may sign up online to take exams on computer by going to and logging in.  After logging in, click on the link for Web for Students; at that page, click on the link entitled Register for Exams on Computer. You will be allowed to register to take an exam on computer only if the professor has authorized this option. If the option is not available for a certain course, the professor has not returned the request form or does not allow exams on computer. If you have any questions, please contact the Registrar's office.

Availability of Professors' Old Exams.  Many professors make their old exams available for students to review.  Exams dating from 1992 and before are bound in volumes available in the 10th floor reading room in the Library.  Exams after 1992 are available in the Document Center on the 9th floor of the Library.

Joke of the Week.  Question: What's bright orange and sounds like a parrot?  Answer: A carrot!
