Spring 2007 Final Exams.

•Exam Schedule. The final exam schedule for the current semester is available here. You will be notified of the classroom assignments for your exams prior to the start of exam period.

•Exam Emergencies. If an emergency occurs that may prevent you from taking a final exam, you or someone on your behalf should call me (312/906-5282) or Mindi Mysliwiec (312/906-5005) as soon as possible. If you cannot reach either of us, call the Registrar's office (312/906-5080). Do not contact your professor about any problem connected with your exam, as this may compromise your anonymity. Please read Section VII of the Student Handbook, which contains the rules governing exams, exam conflicts, make-up exams, missed exams, and related issues; and review Article II of the Code of Conduct in the Student Handbook.

•Cell Phones During Exams. You are not permitted to use a cell phone during any exam, including during any restroom breaks. If you have a cell phone with you during an exam, it must be turned off and stored out of sight.

•Consulting Laptops During Exams. Unless your professor specifically authorizes it, you may not consult materials (notes, outlines, etc.) stored on your laptop computer during an open book or limited open book exam; you are limited to consulting print materials authorized by your professor. Please note: This is separate from the issue of whether you may write your exam on your own laptop. The limitation described above applies whether you are writing your exam by hand or on a lab or laptop computer.

•Access to Computer Labs During Exams. Because we use the computer labs during many of the exam slots during exam period, access for other purposes (e.g., printing out papers or exam outlines) is limited. Please keep in mind that there is a printer in the 5th Floor Student Lounge that you can use if the labs are all in use.

•Availability of Professors' Old Exams. Many professors make their old exams available for students to review. Exams after 1992 are available online by going to http://library.kentlaw.edu/Services/students.htm, 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.

Notice to Graduating Seniors. If you are graduating this semester, please read the information below about your Kent e-mail and network accounts, and your locker. If you have any questions, please let me know. Note: If you are not graduating this semester, you will keep your e-mail account and locker until you graduate.

•E-mail and Network Accounts. E-mail and network accounts will be terminated on Thursday, July 26 (the first business day after the summer bar exam). However, IIT offers a free e-mail service to all alumni. More information about alumni e-mail accounts will be e-mailed to you at a later date, and will be posted on the Computer Center's Record page. The alumni accounts will likely be created in early July. (Note: The e-mail address on the account will not be the same as your current Kentlaw e-mail address -- it will be an IIT address.)

Clearing Out Lockers. Please clear your lockers out no later than Wednesday, August 1. Anything left in lockers after that date will be removed. If you are unable to clear your locker out by that date, please contact me to make arrangeents for your locker contents to be set aside for you.

Summer 2007 Term Information.

Classroom Assignments. The Schedule of Classes for the Summer 2007 term, including classroom assignments, is available here.

Initial Reading Assignments. A list of initial reading assignments for Summer 2007 courses will be available no later than Monday, May 14. It will be linked to this page, and available on the main Student Portal page (click on the Summer '07 link). Please note: If a course is not listed, that means we did not receive an initial assignment from the professor.

Fall 2007 Registration. The initial registration period is now over. If you have not already done so, please log back into the online registration system to see what classes you were admitted into. You may make adjustments to your schedule through the end of the second week of the Fall semester. The Fall 2007 Registration Bulletin, which includes the final schedule of Fall classes and course and exam grids, is available outside the third floor cafeteria. Online versions of these documents, and of the preliminary Spring 2008 schedule, are available through the main Student Portal page.

Fall 2007 Initial Reading Assignments and Course Materials. A list of initial reading assignments for Fall 2007 courses will be posted on the main Student Portal page (click on the Fall '07 link) no later than Friday, August 3.

You may ask the bookstore to hold your Fall course materials for you when they arrive, or for an extra fee you may request that the books be mailed to you over the summer. If you would like to take advantage of either of these options, stop by the bookstore before you leave, or call the bookstore at 312/906-5605. In addition, you may order your course books over the Internet by clicking on the Bookstore link on the Student Portal page.
