Instructions. To register, go to the Spring
2008 Term page and click on the "Online Registration" link. Registration
will run from Tuesday, November 20 through Tuesday, November 27. 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 Friday, November
30. 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
Friday, November 30 to learn what classes you have been admitted into.

you still must register for your Spring courses using the Online Registration
system. Please be careful to register for the doctrinal classes listed for your

•Exam Conflict/Reschedule Requests.
The period is now closed for requesting an exam reschedule due to an exam conflict
or other reason. We are now processing the requests. If you submitted a request,
we will notify you of our response as soon as possible.
Registration. The period is now closed for exam method registration.
Notice About Exam Methods: Beginning this semeser, we changed our "default"
assumption as to how you will take your exams. Assuming your professor has authorized
you to take the exam on computer, the default setting is now that you will take
the exam on laptop. During the exam method registration period, you were able
to change this either to hand writing or lab computer, if you wished. If you did
nothing during the exam method registration period, then you are registered to
take the exam on your laptop computer (assuming your professor authorized exams
Notice to Hand Writers: Beginning this semester, students
who are hand writing an exam will be placed in the same room used by laptop users
for that exam. Hand writers will no longer be segregated in their own room. We
will provide free ear plugs to any hand writers who believe they may be distracted
by the sound of the laptops.
Notice About SofTest: Students taking
exams on laptop must download and install the SofTest exam-taking program. You
will receive information from the Computer Center about when and how to do this.
Even though you do not need to submit an Exam Method Registration form to use
your laptop for exams, you do need to download and install SofTest.
About Borrowing Laptops from the Computer Center: The Computer Center has
a limited supply of laptop computers reserved for use in emergency situations
that arise during exam period. Please contact me if you opt to take an exam on
laptop, and your laptop suffers unexpected problems that cannot be remedied before
your exam. The Computer Center's laptops also may be used (subject to availability)
if your computer has problems immediately before or during an exam, as long as
the problem is not due to your failing to properly configure or register your
laptop to run the SofTest program. Because of limited supply, the Computer Center's
laptops are not available for general loaning purposes during exam period, including
to students who do not own a laptop or are Mac users. However, if you have exceptional
circumstances that you believe justify borrowing a laptop for an exam, please
contact me to discuss your situation.
