Academic Calendar Reminder. Please note the following dates for the closing weeks of the Spring semester:

Monday, May 1: Monday classes meet (King Birthday make-up)
Tuesday, May 2: Last day of classes: Friday classes meet (Good Friday make-up)

Read Period runs from Wednesday, May 3 through Sunday, May 7. Exams begin Monday, May 8 and end on Friday, May 19.

Fall 2006 Registration. The preliminary schedule of classes for the Fall 2006 semester is available outside the third floor cafeteria and through the main Student Portal page (click on the Fall '06 link). The final schedule and Registration Bulletin will be issued on Tuesday, April 25. Registration will take place from Thursday, April 27 through Monday, May 1. 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 3. 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 3 to learn what classes you have been admitted into.

"Where Do We Go From Here?" Program. This program introduces first-year students to the course requirements after the first year, the certificate programs offered by Chicago-Kent, and clinical, externship, and other program opportunities available to upper-level students. The program will be offered at the following times:

Dean's Certificate for Illinois Bar Exam. We will mail a Dean's Certificate to the Illinois bar examiners for every graduating student after final grades for the Spring semester are received and processed, and we can confirm completion of all graduation requirements. We compile the list of graduating students from the list of those who submitted Applications for Graduation listing Spring 2006 as their final semester.

Bar Exams in Other Jurisdictions. If you plan to take a bar exam outside of Illinois, you should provide the Registrar with appropriate forms for the Law School to complete as soon as possible.
