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 2016 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.
Summer 2016 Registration. The registration system has now reopened for Summer 2016 classes. There were no oversubscribed classes, so if you registered during the initial registration period, you were admitted into the classes(es) you registered for.
The add/drop period for the Summer will extend through Thursday, June 2, at 11:50 pm -- unless otherwise noted in the Summer schedule, you may add an open class, or drop a class and receive a tuition refund, through that date.

Fall 2016 Registration.
•Prelminary Fall 2016 Schedule. The preliminary schedule of classes for the Fall 2016 semester is available on the Fall 2016 Quick Guide page. Print copies are available in the third floor elevator bay. Some additions and corrections may be made before the schedule is finalized.
NEW! Unofficial Transcripts
Effective immediately: Students will now be able to receive a “plain copy” version of the unofficial transcript from the Registrar’s Office. Administration has decided that in order to be more cost effective, we will no longer issue copies of transcripts to students on “official” transcript paper. Each copy of the “unofficial transcript will be stamped “issued to student”. You may then copy as many of these as you desire. Official transcripts are issued to: employers, institutions and other entities that require an official copy.
The exception: if you are required to submit the official copy in a “sealed envelope” as part of an application packet, you must indicate the name of *each recipient on the newly revised transcript request form. The recipient must meet the requirement of those who can receive an “official transcript”. Upon verification by the Registrar’s Office, the official transcript will be sent to you in a “sealed envelope” to include with said application packet(s).
*You cannot list your own name as recipient.
Official Student Withdrawal Process.
Students wishing to request a leave of absence from their course of study or complete an official withdrawal from the university should now initiate the process online. To begin the process, log in to the MyIIT portal and under the ‘Academics’ tab, look for the ‘Graduate Academic Affairs’ channel. Chicago-Kent students should follow the ‘I want to take a leave of absence or officially withdraw’ link under the ‘Chicago-Kent College of Law’ header.
Questions regarding the leave of absence or withdrawal process should be directed to firstname.lastname@example.org.
