be able to take your exam on computer. We are limited in
the number of exams we can administer on computer. Due to
limited space in classrooms and computer labs, you may be
scheduled to take a "laptop" exam in a computer
lab. You will be notified after the sign up deadline as
to the status of your request and the location of your exams.

Exam Conflicts/Reschedule Requests - April 18, 2003
Students who believe that they have an exam conflict should
consult the following excerpt from the Chicago-Kent Student
§ 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 (http://webmail.kentlaw.edu),
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.
