Summer 2006 Registration: April 6-10. The Summer 2006 Registration Bulletin, including the Schedule of Classes and information about applying for Summer clinical programs, is available outside the third floor cafeteria. Online versions are also available on the Student Portal page (click on the Summer '06 link near the top), or by clicking here.
Registration for Summer classes will take place from Thursday, April 6 through Monday, April 10. You may register at any time during that period. To register, go to the Student Portal page and click on the Online Registration link. You can use any computer with Internet access, either inside or outside the Law School.
After the end of the 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 within your registration priority group. Evening Division students have priority over Day Division students for Summer registration. Within divisions, registration priority is based on anticipated graduation date, with the earliest graduation date having the highest priority.
To learn what classes you have been admitted into, you must check the Online Registration site on or after Wednesday, April 12. Registering for a class during the initial registration period is no guarantee that you will be admitted to the class -- you must check the web site on or after Wednesday, April 12 to learn what classes you have been admitted to.

Exams on Computer
The deadline for students to sign up for exams on computer is April 21, 2006. To sign up for exams on computer, log in to your Webmail account click on the Web for Students link and then follow the appropriate links to the computer exam registration page. Make your selection and press "Submit Selection" button. A confirmation number will be generated for you. After April 21, 2006, your final exam schedule, with the administration method, will be e-mailed to you. PLEASE NOTE: We are continuously receiving requests from faculty to make computers available for their exam(s). If your professor has not yet submitted a form, please check with them or continue to check the system. Seats may open up.
Please note: Signing up is not a guarantee that you will 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.
Lab Computer Users: Although the program is simple to use, please spend a few minutes reviewing the SofTest help file that is located on the network. The file may be found at Z:\SpringExams\HelpFile\SofTest.hlp . You may also use SofTest to run a practice exam from any lab computer during the exam period (go to Start, Programs, SofTest, Softest; then click on the Practice button on the lower edge of the screen).
Laptop Users: All students using laptops must install the new version of the SofTest software prior to final exams. If you have used the software previously, you must uninstall the old version and install the new version! Please see the FAQ document on ExamSoft's Web site if you have questions about this process - http://www.examsoft.com/faq
Please make sure that your computer is properly configured to access the Chicago-Kent LAN and that the SofTest registration/qualification process has been completed prior to your final exams. Students with computers that are not properly configured, not registered, or experiencing technical difficulties will be given blue books and will write their final exams. No exceptions to this policy will be made. Additionally, to avoid any technical or computer difficulties, please make sure you bring the following items with you to the exam: SofTest Registration number and qualification numbers- Your network card and cable floppy disk drive (if owned)- Your laptop power cord. Wireless connections are not supported for exams. If you have any technical questions, please check the FAQ page at http://www.examsoft.com/faq or contact the CLC at firstname.lastname@example.org.
