Spring 2016 CALI Awards. The CALI Excellence for the Future Award, sponsored by the Center for Computer-Assisted Legal Instruction, is given to the student or students who receive the highest grade in each section of each course. The CALI award winners for Spring 2016 courses are available by clicking here. If a section or a course is not listed, that means the professor elected not to give a CALI award, or we have not yet heard from the professor. Congratulations to all of you who received an award - you should be proud of your achievement. There will be a luncheon in the Fall for all 2015-2016 CALI Award winners; certificates will be distributed at that time.
Spring 2016 GPAs and Class Ranks. Cumulative GPAs through the Spring 2016 semester, and Spring 2016 class ranks for J.D. students, are available through Web for Students (click on the Spring 2016 link under Grades and Rank in the left-hand menu). Students who graduated in the Fall or last Summer will find their final class rank under the Fall 2015 or Summer 2015 links. Class ranks are based on cumulative (not just Spring semester) GPA. For those students who transferred into Kent in January, please keep in mind that you will not receive a class rank until you have been here for two semesters. The GPA cut-offs as of the end of the Spring 2016 semester are available by clicking here.
Note to Spring graduates: For J.D. students who just graduated, this information constitutes their final GPA and class rank.
Note to first-year full-time students: If you are a first-year full-time student, the cumulative GPA for you in Web for Students includes all of your coursework through the end of the Spring semester. However, as previously announced, class ranks were determined by excluding Legislation or any elective course taken, in order to ensure that all first-year full-time students were assessed on a common set of courses. Likewise, probation and dismissal decisions, eligibility for Law Review, and eligibility for merit scholarships are based on first-year performance excluding Legislation or any elective course taken.
Summer 2016 Pass/Fail Revocations. The deadline for revoking pass/fail for all elective Summer courses, except Business Organizations, is Thursday, July 14, at 5:00pm.
