Academic Calendar Reminder. All Law School classes are canceled on Friday, April 14, for Good Friday.

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 Webmail account, 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 Webmail account, click on the Web for Students icon, and navigate to the appropriate form.

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 here.

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 admitted to.

Fall 2006 Preliminary Schedule. The preliminary schedule of classes for the Fall 2006 semester will be distributed early in the week of April 17 outside the third floor cafeteria; an online version will be available on the main Student Portal page. The final schedule and Registration Bulletin will be issued the following week.
