The preliminary schedule for the Fall 2003 semester will
be published and available for download by the end of the
day Monday, May 5, 2003 at http://www.kentlaw.edu/depts/reg/webregistration.htm.
You can pick up a hard-copy of the preliminary schedule
on the table outside the Spakateria on Tuesday.
Registration for the Fall 2003 semester will take place
between Thursday, May 8 and Saturday, May 10.
As has been the procedure in the past, you may register
at any time during this period. The registration system
will close at 11:59 p.m. on Saturday. We strongly recommend
that you register during normal business hours so that there
are staff available to assist you with any problems. After
the end of the initial registration period, the registration
requests will be processed according to each student's registration
priority. In other words, registration will not be conducted
on a first-come, first served basis. As long as you register
during the designated period, you will have an equal chance
of being admitted to a class as other students with your
registration priority group.
Registering for a course does not mean you are enrolled
in it. To learn what classes you have been admitted to,
you must check the registration web site on Monday, May
12, beginning at 12:01 a.m. At that time, you may add, drop,
or make adjustments to your class schedule in "real
time" on a first-come, first-served basis.
We understand that this is an extremely busy time and appreciate
your understanding and patience.

clinical education programs, students must submit a completed
