The Registrar's Office hours: 8:30am to 5:00pm Monday- 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, e-mail us at regq@kentlaw.iit.edu or stop by Suite 220.

Spring 2017 Semester Information. The Spring 2017 Quick Guide page has most of the information you will need in advance of the start of the Spring semester -- click here, or go to the main Current Students Portal page and click on the Spring 2017 Quick Guide link under "Academics & Grades." Alternatively, click on the individual links below to go directly to the indicated documents.

Initial Reading Assignments
An updated list of initial reading assignments has been posted; assignments were added for Property (Prof. Perritt) and Regulation of New Technologies (Prof. Perritt), and a revised assignment for Copyright Law (Prof. Lee) was posted. Please note: Not all professors submit initial assignments, so do not be concerned if there is no listing for one or more of your Spring courses. Even if a course is not listed, materials for the course should be available in the Bookstore (if the professor is assigning texts sold through the Bookstore).

Revised Spring Schedule (with Classroom Assignments and Exam Information)
Classroom assignments are also posted in the front lobby. This version of the schedule has exam information for Spring classes. You may have an exam rescheduled if you have an "exam conflict" (as defined below). A Final Exam Reschedule Form will be posted later this semester through Web for Students.

A student is deemed to have an "exam conflict" if he or she 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).

Applications for Graduation
J.D. students who plan on graduating at the end of the Spring semester must submit an online Application for Graduation form no later than Tuesday, January 31. To complete the form, go to Web for Students at https://wfs.kentlaw.iit.edu and click on "Application for Graduation" under "Online Forms" in the lefthand menu. Please complete every field in the form, and click Submit when done. You will receive a confirmation e-mail once a graduation audit has been performed. Please note that any changes you make to your schedule after the audit may affect your graduation requirements. You should check with the Registrar's Office prior to making any changes. Also note that, although the Registrar's Office does conduct graduation audits on all applications, it is your responsibility to make certain all requirements for graduation are met. If you have any questions, please stop by the Registrar's office.
NOTE: Do not submit more than ONE application.

You may withdraw from any course except a required course, a clinical course, Law Review, Moot Court, or Intensive Trial Advocacy at any time prior to the date of the final exam or final paper (see §3.10(c) of the Student Handbook). There is no tuition penalty if you drop a course during the first two weeks of classes. You will not receive a tuition refund, however, if you drop a course after Tuesday, January 31, 11:00pm.

  2. Select the "Take Class Pass/Fail" option under the "Online Forms" heading

  3. Select the course you would like to take on a pass/fail basis

  4. Submit your selection

The Registrar's Office will review your request and inform you if there is any problem with your request.

UNOFFICIAL TRANSCRIPTS

Students will now be able to receive a “plain copy” version of the unofficial transcript from the Registrar’s Office. The Registrar's Office will no longer issue copies of transcripts to students on “official” transcript paper. Transcripts are not emailed!

Each copy of the “unofficial transcript will be stamped “issued to student”.  You may then copy as many of these as you desire.  Official transcripts are issued to: employers, institutions and other entities that require an official copy.

The exception:  if you are required to submit the official copy in a “sealed envelope” as part of an application packet, you must indicate the name of *each recipient on the newly revised transcript request form.  The recipient must meet the requirement of those who can receive an “official transcript”.  Upon verification by the Registrar’s Office, the official transcript will be sent to you in a “sealed envelope” to include with said application packet(s).

*You cannot list your own name as recipient.

 

Official Student Withdrawal Process.

Students wishing to request a leave of absence from their course of study or complete an official withdrawal from the university should now initiate the process online. To begin the process, log in to the MyIIT portal and under the ‘Academics’ tab, look for the ‘Graduate Academic Affairs’ channel. Chicago-Kent students should follow the ‘I want to take a leave of absence or officially withdraw’ link under the ‘Chicago-Kent College of Law’ header.

Questions regarding the leave of absence or withdrawal process should be directed to regq@kentlaw.iit.edu.
