Summer 2007 Exams.

•Exam Schedule.
The final exams for the Summer term are listed in the Schedule of Classes available here. You will be notified of the classroom assignments for your exams prior to the start of exam period.

•Exam Reschedule Requests.
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 contact Mindi Mysliwiec ( no later than Friday, July 6, 2007. 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.

•Exams on Computer Sign-Up.
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 will take place from Thursday, July 5 through Tuesday, July 10. To register beginning July 5, log into your Webmail account, click on the Web for Students icon, and navigate to the appropriate form.

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 30 (not July 26, as previously announced). However, IIT offers a free e-mail service to all alumni. Information about alumni e-mail accounts was sent to graduating students recently by e-mail, and is available on the Computer Center's Record page. (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.)
