Fall 2004 Final Exams.
Exam Schedule. The final exam schedule for the current
semester is linked
to this page. You will be notified of the classroom
assignments for your exams prior to the start of exam period.
Room Assignments and Exam Procedures. You should
have received an e-mail from the Registrar's office with
room assignments for your exams. If you have not received
that information, you can find it by logging into your Web
for Students account and clicking on the "Fall 2004"
link under "Schedule" (on the left hand menu).
Room assignments will also be posted in the front lobby.
Exams on Computer. If you missed the initial period
for registering to take exams on computer, you may still
do so for any exam that still has computer slots available.
(Please keep in mind that not all professors allow students
to take exams on computer.) You may also change your exam
preference from computer to hand-writing. For both of these
options, log into your Web for Students account and click
on the "Register for exams on computer" link under
"On Line Forms" (on the left hand menu).
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.
Exam Emergencies. If an emergency occurs that may
prevent you from taking a final exam, you or someone on
your behalf should call me (312/906-5282) or Jamie Lake
(312/906-5247) as soon as possible. If you cannot reach
either of us, call the Registrar's office (312/906-5080).
Do not contact your professor, as this may compromise
your anonymity. Please read Section VII
of the Student Handbook, which contains the rules governing
exams, exam conflicts, make-up exams, missed exams, and
related issues; and review Article II of the Code of Conduct
in the Student Handbook.
Consulting Laptops During Exams. Unless your professor
specifically authorizes it, you may not consult materials
(notes, outlines, etc.) stored on your laptop computer during
an open book or limited open book exam; you are limited
to consulting print materials authorized by your professor.
Please note: This is separate from the issue of whether
you may write your exam on your own laptop. The limitation
described just above applies whether you are writing your
exam by hand or on a lab or laptop computer.
Cell Phones During Exams. You are not permitted to
use a cell phone during any exam, including during any restroom
breaks. If you have a cell phone with you during an exam,
it must be turned off and stored out of sight.
Access to Computer Labs During Exams. Because we
use the computer labs during many of the exam slots during
exam period, access for other purposes (e.g., printing out
papers or exam outlines) is limited. Please keep in mind
that there is a printer in the 5th Floor Student Lounge
that you can use if the labs are all in use.
Spring 2005 Registration.
Changes to Class Schedule. Please note the following
corrections to the Spring 2005 schedule:
Gift & Estate Tax: Personal Income Tax must
be completed or taken concurrently.
International Organizations: The course number
was listed incorrectly in the schedule. The actual course
number is 315-001.
Legal Writing 3 (section 431-004, Tues./Thurs. 4:30):
This section has been canceled due to low enrollment.
Adding and Dropping Classes. The initial registration
period is now over. If you have not already done so, please
log back into the online registration system to see what
classes you were admitted into. You may make adjustments
to your schedule through the end of the second week of the
Spring semester. The Spring 2005 Registration Bulletin,
which includes the final schedule of Fall classes and course
and exam grids, is available outside the third floor cafeteria.
Online versions of these documents and access to the online
registration system are available here
and through the main Student
Portal page (click on the Spring '05 link).
Initial Reading Assignments and Course Books.
Reading assignments for the first week of the Spring semester
will be posted on the Student
Portal page (under the Spring '05 link) on Tuesday,
December 21. Assignments not received by December 21
will be posted as we receive them.
You may ask the Bookstore to hold your Spring course books
for you when they arrive, or for an extra fee you may request
that the books be mailed to you over the holiday break.
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 Student Portal page.
Joke of the week. "I like dogs. I do. But they're
not that bright, really. Let's examine the dog mind. Every
time you come home, he thinks it's amazing. He can't believe
that you've accomplished this again. You walk in the door.
The joy of it almost kills him. 'He's back again. It's that
guy! It's that guy!'" (Jerry Seinfel
