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. If you have any questions regarding your academic records, the Registrar's Office Staff will be happy to assist you. You can call us at (312) 906-5080 or stop by Suite 220.
Summer 2007 Registration: April 11-16. The Summer 2007 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 '07 link near the top), now available
or by clicking here.
Registration for Summer classes will take place from Wednesday, April 11 through Monday, April 16. 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 18. 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 18 to learn what classes you have been admitted to. At that time, you may add, drop, or make adjustments to your class schedule in "real time."
Exam Conflict/Reschedule Requests: April 3 - April 16. 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. The form will be available beginning Tuesday, April 3. To complete the form, log into 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 Monday, April 16, at 5:00 pm. This deadline will be strictly enforced. If your request is approved, you will be notified 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).
Exams on Computer Sign-Up: April 3 - April 16. 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 Tuesday, April 3. To register, log into your Webmail account, click on the Web for Students icon, and navigate to the Register for Exams on Computer form. The deadline for registering to take your exams on computer is Monday, April 16, at 5:00 pm. This deadline will be strictly enforced.
Notice About Borrowing Laptops from the Computer Center: The Computer Center has a limited supply of laptop computers reserved for use in emergency situations that arise during exam period. Please contact Dean Sowle if you register to take an exam on laptop, and your laptop suffers unexpected problems that cannot be remedied before your exam. The Computer Center's laptops also may be used (subject to availability) if your computer has problems immediately before or during an exam, as long as the problem is not due to your failing to properly configure or register your laptop to run the SofTest program. (SofTest is the program all students are required to use for taking exams on computer; the Computer Center will email and post information separately about the SofTest program.) Because of limited supply, the Computer Center's laptops are not available for general loaning purposes during exam period, including to students who do not own a laptop or are Mac users. However, if you have exceptional circumstances that you believe justify borrowing a laptop for an exam, please contact Dean Sowle to discuss your situation.
