Good Luck and Happy Holidays. I wish all of you the
best of luck on your exams, and a joyous holiday season.
Fall 2004 Final Exams.
Exam Schedule. The final exam schedule for the current
semester is linked
to this page. 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.
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 about any problem connected with your exam, 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
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.
