Summer 2007 Registration.
for Summer 2007 classes is now over. Fortunately, we were
able to accommodate all student registration requests
-- we did not have to drop anyone from any of the summer
courses due to oversubscribed classes.
The registration system has reopened. You may add an open
class, or drop a class and receive a tuition refund, through
the end of the first week of the Summer term.
Fall 2007 Registration.
The preliminary schedule
of classes for the Fall 2007 semester is available outside
the third floor cafeteria and through the main Student
(click on the Fall '07 link). The final
schedule and Registration Bulletin will be issued no later
than Wednesday, April 25. Registration will take place
from Friday, April 27 through Tuesday, 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
Thursday, 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 Thursday, May 3 to learn what classes
you have been admitted into.

Spring 2007 Final Exams.
The final exam schedule
for the current semester is available
You will be notified of the classroom assignments
for your exams prior to the start of exam period.
•Exams on Computer Sign-Up: Extended Through Monday,
It appears that an unusually high number
of students this semester missed the deadline for registering
to take exams on computer. Because of the administrative
burden this is causing, we are opening registration back
up temporarily. For those who missed the deadline, you
may register to take exams on computer through this coming
Monday, April 23, at 5:00pm. If you do not register by
that time, you will be unable to take your exam on computer.
To register, log into your Webmail
account, click on the Web for Students icon, and navigate
to the "Register for exams on computer" link
on the left-hand menu.
Registering for exams on computer
is separate from installing the SofTest program, which
you will need to do if you plan on taking exams on your
own laptop. (You don't need to worry about this if you
take your exams on a lap computer.) Installing SofTest
involves a separate downloading and registration process,
and you will receive information about this from the Computer
Center. The instructions above relate to registering with
Chicago-Kent your desire to take exams on computer, so
that we may make classroom and lab assignments for the
•Availability of Professors' Old Exams.
Many professors make their old exams available for students
to review. Exams after 1992 are available online by going
clicking on the Exam Database link (under Resources).
Exams dating from 1992 and before are bound in volumes
available in the 10th floor reading room in the Library.
Dean's Certificate for Illinois Bar.
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
2007 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.
