Exam Conflicts/Reschedule Requests - April 18, 2003 Deadline

Students who believe that they have an exam conflict should consult the following excerpt from the Chicago-Kent Student Handbook.

7.2 Exam Schedule and Conflicts
The examination schedule is published with the class schedule before registration each semester. All students must take their examinations at the scheduled time, except as provided herein and in 7.3 and 7.4. If a student registers for two courses with examinations scheduled at the same time, one examination will be rescheduled for the same day at a different hour, or for Evening Division students, within 24 hours. If a final exam is to be rescheduled, a Final Exam Reschedule form must be completed and submitted to the Registrar. In addition, the student must sign an Affirmation of Nondisclosure stating that he/she has not and will not communicate with anyone about any aspect of the examination.

A student will be deemed to have a conflict if he or she has three exams scheduled consecutively. A conflict does not exist if two exams are scheduled on the same day, but at different hours.

If you believe that you meet the requirements set forth above, you should submit an exam reschedule request using the Chicago-Kent Web-for-Students. To access the request form, on the Chicago-Kent Web-for-Students, log on to your webmail account (, click on the icon in the lower right corner of the menu bar, and navigate to the online forms section of the Web-for-Students.
