Academic Calendars for 2005-2006 and 2006-2007 are linked

Spring 2005 Preliminary Schedule. The Spring 2005 preliminary
schedule is linked
to this page. Please note: This preliminary
schedule was issued last April (prior to registration for
the current Fall 2004 semester), and changes will be made
to the schedule before it is finalized. The first-year schedule
for the Spring will be published in the final schedule. The
final schedule will be issued early in the week of November
Fall 2004 Final Exams. 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. If you believe you have an exam conflict or other circumstances
justifying the rescheduling of an exam (see Student
Handbook sections 7.2 and 7.3), please complete a Final
Exam Reschedule form on the Web for Students site (go to https://webmail.kentlaw.edu/exchange/logon.asp,
click on the Web for Students icon, and navigate to the appropriate
form). The deadline is Friday, November 19. The Registrar's
office will notify you of the rescheduled date, time, and
location of your exam.
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 online by going to http://library.kentlaw.edu/Services/students.htm,
clicking on the Exams Database link on the left, and then
clicking on the link indicated there.
Exams on Computer Sign-Up. Many professors allow students
to take their exams on computer (either lab computers or students'
own laptops, or both). Please see the Registrar's
section of the Record for 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 9, 11:30-12:30 pm, in the Auditorium
(for day students) and Wednesday, November 10, 5:00-5:45,
in Rm 590 (for evening 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).
