and before are bound in volumes available in the 10th floor reading room in the

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.

conflicts, make-up exams, missed exams, and related issues; and review Article

Laptops During Exams.
Unless your professor specifically authorizes it,
you may not consult materials (notes, outlines, etc.) stored on your laptop computer

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.

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.Spring 2008 Registration.
