1992 are available online by going to http://library.kentlaw.edu/Services/students.htm

•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 Jenna Moroney (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.
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.
•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.
•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.
