Fall 2005 Registration. The final Fall 2005 schedule,
the Registration Bulletin, and the course and exam grids are
available by clicking
here or by going to the main Student
Portal page (click on the Fall '05 link). Print copies
are available outside the third floor cafeteria. Registration
runs through Monday, May 2. 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. To
learn what classes you have been admitted into, you must check
the online registration site on or after Wednesday, May 4.
Registering for a class during the initial registration period
is no guarantee that you will be admitted into the class –
you must check the web site on or after Wednesday, May 4 to
learn what classes you have been admitted into.
Please note the following corrections to the Fall schedule:
*Alternative Dispute Resolution: This course will meet Tuesdays,
6:00-7:50 pm (not 4:00-5:50 pm). The course number has been
changed to 575-051.
*Personal Income Tax: The evening course grid inadvertently
listed the evening section of Personal Income Tax as meeting
Mon./Wed. at 6:00. As indicated on the actual schedule (preliminary
and final), the class will actually meet Tues./Thurs. at
In addition, the charge for student health insurance next
year was given incorrectly in the Registration Bulletin.
The annual premium will be $885 (not $891).

schedule of classes for the Spring 2006 semester is available

Spring 2005 Final Exams.
Exam Schedule. The final exam schedule for the current
semester is linked
to this page. The Registrar's office will notify you
by e-mail next week of the classroom assignments for your
Exams on Computer Sign-Up. If you missed the
initial period for registering to take exams on computer,
you may still do so beginning on Monday, May 2, 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. The sign-up system will be available
until noon on Friday, May 6. To access the system, 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).
If you take any of your exams on computer, please report
to your exam room at least 20 minutes prior to the scheduled
start of the exam.
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) 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.
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.
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 above applies whether
you are writing your exam by hand or on a lab or laptop
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.
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.
Joke of the Week. "According to most studies, people's
number one fear is public speaking. Number two is death.
Death is number two. Does that seem right? That means to
the average person, if you have to go to a funeral, you're
better off in the casket than doing the eulogy." (Jerry
