Welcome New Students!
The Office of Student Services (located on the north side of the third floor in Suite 310) can help you with a wide range of issues, including academic counseling (e.g., helping with course selection after your first year, assisting with studying, outlining, and exam-taking skills, and information about academic programs and regulations); accommodations available to students with disabilities; information about the CTA’s U-Pass program (which provides passes to all full-time students for unlimited rides on CTA trains and busses); questions about student health insurance; information about health and counseling resources available on Main Campus (many of which are available free of charge to students); and information about the Academic Support Program.

Academic Support Program. You will receive information during Orientation about the Academic Support Program (ASP), which is designed to assist first-year students in developing the skills needed to succeed in law school. One component of the program is weekly small group sessions focusing on skills development in the context of each of your Fall doctrinal courses. We will be sending invitations to selected students before the start of the regular semester to join these sessions. If you do not receive an invitation and would like to petition to join them, click here for the petition form, which is due to me no later than Thursday, September 6. Information about the program and study resources is available on the ASP web site.
CTA U-Pass Program. Chicago-Kent is a participant in the Chicago Transit Authority's U-Pass program. The U-Pass is a discount fare card allowing unlimited rides on all CTA buses and trains. All full-time day students will receive a U-Pass card valid from August 27 (the first day of classes) through December 21 (the end of Fall exams). New cards will be issued at the start of the Spring semester. The charge for the card will appear on the semester bill for each full-time student. Due to restrictions imposed by the CTA, the program is not currently available to evening students or part-time day students. For more details, see our U-Pass FAQ, and visit the CTA's U-Pass web site.
