Have a Nice Summer!
Congratulations on (almost) completing the school
year. For those of you who will be back next year, I hope you have a productive
and restful summer. For those who are graduating this semester, I look forward
to seeing you at Commencement -- and I wish you good luck on the bar and in starting
Spring 2007 Final Exams. •Exam Schedule.
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. •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
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. Notice to Graduating Seniors.
