Week of November 10, 2003
Spring 2004 Schedule and Registration. The preliminary
schedule of classes for the Spring 2004 semester is available
outside the third floor cafeteria. An online version is linked
to this page and to the main Student
Portal page. The final schedule and Registration Bulletin
will be issued during the week of November 10. Instructions
for registering online will be included in the Registration
Bulletin. Registration will take place Friday, November 14
through Monday, November 17. You may register at any time
during that period. After the end of the registration period,
the registration requests will be processed according to each
student's registration priority. In other words, registration
will not be conducted on a first-come, first served basis;
as long as you register during the designated period, you
will have an equal chance of being admitted to a class as
other students within your registration priority group.
Exams on Computer Sign-Up. Many professors allow students
to take their exams on computer (either lab computers or students'
own laptops, or both). The deadline for signing up to take
exams on computer is November 14. The Registrar's
section of the Record has details about the procedure
for signing up.
ASP Program on Preparing for and Taking Exams. The Academic
Support Program will present its final Fall workshop on Tuesday,
November 11, 5:00-5:45 pm, in Rm. C50 (for evening
students) and Wednesday, November 12, 3:00-4:00,
in the Auditorium (for day students). This workshop
will focus on strategies for preparing for and taking exams
and will feature comments from both the faculty and student
perspectives. Although the workshop is mainly aimed at first-year
students, all students are welcome to attend. If you are unable
to attend but would like to see a videotape of the program,
contact Jamie Lake (e-mail: JLAKE).
Illinois Bar Exam: Q&A With Bar Examiners. Representatives
from the Illinois Board of Admissions to the Bar will be at
the Law School on Thursday, November 20, 12:00-1:30 pm
(for day students) and 5:00-6:00 pm (for evening students)
in the Auditorium to answer questions from third-year students
concerning the completion of your bar application. A separate
session will be held early in the Spring semester for first-year
As announced in previous issues of the Record, first-year
students who plan to take the Illinois Bar Examination after
graduation should submit a registration application, which
must be postmarked by March 1, 2004. The forms and
instructions are available on the bar examiners' web site:
Although you are not required to register as a first-year
student, the advantage of doing so is that you will avoid
paying a late fee of $350 imposed on those who register at
any point after March 1 of their first year.
ASP Teacher's Assistant Applications. If you are interested
in applying for a Teacher's Assistant position for the Spring
2004 semester, the deadline for doing so is November 25.
