Spring 2006 Preliminary Schedule. The Spring 2006 preliminary schedule is linked to this page. Please note: This preliminary schedule was issued last April (prior to registration for the current Fall 2005 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 late in the week of November 7.

Fall 2005 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 (log onto your Webmail account, click on the Web for Students icon, and navigate to the Final Exam Reschedule form). The deadline is Friday, November 11. If your request is approved, the Registrar's office will notify you later this semester 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.
