      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 3.   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  $525 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 Tuesday, August 31.  The waiver forms and brochures are available in the Registrar's 

               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 
 3, 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 as of the end of the Spring 1999 semester are now available via the (On-line) 
Chicago-Kent Student Grade System. 

         January 1999 Graduates 
 If you plan to graduate at the end of the Fall 1999 semester, please complete the Application for 
Graduation and submit it to the Registrar by Friday,  September 3, 1999.  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.

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 10
