Spring 2006 Exams.
Exam Schedule. The final exam schedule for the
current semester is available here.
You will be notified of your Spring exam number and the classroom
assignments for your exams prior to the start of exam period.
Exam Reschedule Requests: Deadline April 14. The Student
Handbook requires that you take your final exams at the times
scheduled unless you have an exam conflict (as defined below),
or you have a "serious illness or other extraordinary
or compelling reason" beyond your control. If you have
an exam conflict or believe you have other reasons justifying
the rescheduling of an exam, please complete the Final Exam
Reschedule form on the Web for Students site (log onto your
click on the Web for Students icon, and navigate to the Final
Exam Reschedule form). The deadline for submitting an exam
reschedule request is Friday, April 14. This deadline will
be strictly enforced. 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.
Under the new policy adopted by the faculty in December, a
student is deemed to have an "exam conflict" if
the student has two exams at the same time, or has two or
more exams within 24 hours (e.g., exams at 8:30 a.m. and 6:00
p.m., or at 6:00 p.m. and 1:15 the following afternoon). A
conflict does not exist if two exams are scheduled exactly
24 hours apart (e.g., exams at 8:30 a.m. one morning and 8:30
a.m. the next morning).
Exams on Computer Sign-Up: Deadline April 21. Many
professors allow students to take their exams on computer
(either lab computers or students' own laptops, or both).
Registration for taking exams on computer is now open and
runs through Friday, April 21. To register, log onto your
click on the Web for Students icon, and navigate to the appropriate
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.
Summer 2006 Registration: April 6-10. The Summer 2006
Registration Bulletin, including the Schedule of Classes and
information about applying for Summer clinical programs, is
available outside the third floor cafeteria. Online versions
are also available on the Student
Portal page (click on the Summer '06 link near the top),
or by clicking
Registration for Summer classes will take place from Thursday,
April 6 through Monday, April 10. You may register at
any time during that period. To register, go to the Student
Portal page and click on the Online Registration link.
You can use any computer with Internet access, either inside
or outside the Law School.
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. Evening Division students have
priority over Day Division students for Summer registration.
Within divisions, registration priority is based on anticipated
graduation date, with the earliest graduation date having
the highest priority.
To learn what classes you have been admitted into, you
must check the Online Registration site on or after Wednesday,
April 12. Registering for a class during the initial
registration period is no guarantee that you will be admitted
to the class -- you must check the web site on or after
Wednesday, April 12 to learn what classes you have been
