Notices to Graduating Seniors. If you are graduating this semester, please read the information below about your Kent email and network accounts, and your locker. If you have any questions, please let me know.
•Email, Network, and Print Accounts. Email accounts: Your Kent email account is for life. You can continue to use your Chicago-Kent email as long as you chose to do so. Network accounts: Your network account will be deactivated on Monday, August 4 (the first Monday after the July bar exam). Print accounts: Your free printing quota will be reset to zero on May 19 (the first Monday after Commencement). You can use TechCash funds to print and copy until August.
•Clearing Out Lockers. Please clear your lockers out no later than Friday, August 1. Anything left in lockers after that date will be removed. If you are unable to clear your locker out by that date, please contact me to make arrangements for your locker contents to be set aside for you. Note: This applies only to graduating students. If you are not graduating, you do not need to clear your locker out; you will keep your current locker until you graduate.
•Student Health Insurance. If you have student health insurance through IIT, your coverage will end on August 13, 2014.
Dean's Certificate for Illinois Bar. We will mail a Dean's Certificate to the Illinois bar examiners for every graduating student after final grades for the Spring semester are received and processed, and we can confirm completion of all graduation requirements. We compile the list of graduating students from the list of those who submitted Applications for Graduation listing Spring 2014 as their final semester.
Bar Exams in Other Jurisdictions. If you plan to take a bar exam outside of Illinois, you should provide the Registrar with appropriate forms for the Law School to complete as soon as possible.
Spring 2014 Grade Submissions. Spring grades are due no later than four weeks from the date of the exam or, if there is no final exam, four weeks from the last day of the exam period. All Spring grades should be in by Friday, June 13. Grades are released as they are received. You can access your grades by logging into Web for Students, then clicking on the Spring 2014 link under the Grades and Rank heading. Note to Spring graduates: We have an earlier internal deadline for submission of graduating student grades. Although we do not have most graduating senior grades until after Commencement (even if you participated in the Commencement ceremony, your graduation is contingent on successful completion of all of your Spring courses), we will have your grades in time to submit Illinois bar certificates for you.
