Welcome Back!  We hope you enjoyed your summer break. 
Program Changes 
To add or drop a course you must complete a registration change form, sign it, and submit it to 
the Registrar's office.  You may add an open course until 5:00 p.m. Friday, September 4.   You may drop a course other than a required or a clinical course any time before the final exam or the final paper due date.  If you drop a course and reduce your credit hours, you will be charged tuition 
according to the  following schedule: 
During the first week                  no charge 
During the second week            50% of tuition 
During the third week                75% of tuition 
After the third week                  100% of tuition 

All students registered for at least 12 credit hours (whether day or evening) will automatically be charged the basic student health insurance fee of $442 for the full academic year.  If you have other health care coverage, you may waive the Student Health Plan by completing the waiver form and returning it to the Counseling & Health Service office at the main campus.  The deadline to waive coverage for the Fall semester is Monday, August 31.  The waiver forms and brochures are available in the Registrar's office. 

Notice to evening students enrolled in Intensive Trial Advocacy:  If your registration in Intensive Trial Advocacy brings your total credit hours for the Fall semester to at least 12 credits, you will automatically be billed the student health insurance unless you waive coverage. 
Students registered for fewer than 12 credit hours who want to be covered by the insurance plan must apply for coverage.   Call the Counseling & Health Service's insurance line at (312) 808-7101 for an application.  January graduates and students who withdraw before the second week of the Spring semester who paid for the full-year policy may request a refund for the remainder of the policy by submitting a letter to Terry Shapiro, the Director of IIT Counseling 

Pass/Fail Election 
Students in good academic standing may elect to take up to six credit hours of non- required 
courses on a pass/fail basis.  The deadline for making a pass/fail election  is Friday, September 4, at 5:00 p.m..   Make sure to submit two copies of the form to the Registrar and retain one of the copies signed by the Registrar's office until you get your course grade.  You may revoke a pass/fail election at any time until the last day of classes for the semester.  Please review §2.4 of the Student Handbook and the Pass/Fail Election Form for additional information and 
restrictions regarding pass/fail election. 

Class Rank 
Class ranks are available in  the Career Services office, Room 360. 

January, 1999 Graduates 
If you plan to graduate at the end of the Fall, 1998 semester, please complete the Application for Graduation and submit it to the Registrar by Friday,  September 4, 1998.  The forms are available in the Registrar's office.   The Registrar's office will review your application and your transcript and will notify you if it appears that you are missing a requirement or will not have sufficient hours to graduate.  However, it is your responsibility, not the Registrar's, to make sure that all graduation requirements will be fulfilled by the end of your final semester. 

Student Directory and Privacy Form 
The law school publishes a Student Directory containing the names, addresses, and telephone 
numbers of all the students enrolled in the law school.  If you do not wish to have your name, 
address, and telephone number published in the Chicago-Kent Student Directory, you must 
submit a Privacy Form available in the Registrar's office by Friday, September 11.  

First-year Students - Undergraduate Transcripts 
If you have not already done so, please contact the school from which you received you 
undergraduate degree and request that your final official transcript be mailed to the Registrar's 
office.  We must have an official copy of your undergraduate transcript in your law school file. 
You will not be permitted to register for the Spring semester unless we have your undergraduate
