Office Hours and Contact Information. The Registrar's Office hours are 8:30 am to 6:00 pm (Monday - Thursday) and 8:30 am to 5:00 pm on Friday.

Change of Division Petition
A student who wants to change from the Evening to the Day Division, or vice versa, must submit a written request to change divisions to the Registrar by the date announced in the Law School Record. This request should be submitted on the Chicago-Kent Web for Students https://webmail.kentlaw.edu/exchange/logon.asp. Click on the Web-for-Students icon and navigate to the appropriate form.
Changes are permitted on a space-available basis. If all students can be accommodated, all will be permitted to change divisions; if all students cannot be accommodated, a lottery drawing will be held to determine which students will be permitted to change.
First year students are not eligible to change divisions until after the completion of the first year.
Exams on Computer Sign-Up
Many professors allow students to take their exams on computer (either lab computers or students' own laptops, or both). Registration for taking exams on computer will begin on Monday, November 13. Keep an eye on the Record for more details.
Exam Reschedule Requests: Deadline November 10 no later than 5:00 pm
The Student Handbook requires that you take your final exams at the times scheduled unless you have an exam conflict (as defined below), or you have a "serious illness or other extraordinary or compelling reason" beyond your control. If you have an exam conflict or believe you have other reasons justifying the rescheduling of an exam, please complete the Final Exam Reschedule form on the Web for Students site (log onto your Webmail account, click on the Web for Students icon, and navigate to the Final Exam Reschedule form). The deadline for submitting an exam reschedule request is Friday, November 10. This deadline will be strictly enforced. If your request is approved, the Registrar's office will notify you later this semester of the rescheduled date, time, and location of your exam.
Under current policy, a student is deemed to have an "exam conflict" if the student has two exams at the same time, or has two or more exams within 24 hours (e.g., exams at 8:30 a.m. and 6:00 p.m., or at 6:00 p.m. and 1:15 the following afternoon). A conflict does not exist if two exams are scheduled exactly 24 hours apart (e.g., exams at 8:30 a.m. one morning and 8:30 a.m. the next morning).
Pass/Fail Revocation - Deadline December 1, 2006
A student may revoke the pass/fail election and convert from the pass/fail election to the standard grading system at any time up to the last day of class for the semester. The revocation form is available on the Chicago-Kent Web for Students https://webmail.kentlaw.edu/exchange/logon.asp. Click on the Web-for-Students icon and navigate to the appropriate form.
