of Program, Withdrawals, and Refunds.") When you are prepared to register, select the
Register for Courses link below and follow the screen instructions.
2. The deadline for adding Summer Session courses via the website or RTTRS systems is
Friday, April 22, 2005. If you wish to add courses after this date, you must contact Associate
Dean John Podolski for assistance (Room 600D; ext. 6252; fax: 856-225-6487; or
firstname.lastname@example.org). The deadline for registering and paying the tuition bill
without a $50 late fee is Friday, May 20, 2005. The last possible day for registration and bill
payment with a $50 late fee is Thursday, May 26, 2005.
You may use the website to drop courses with a 100% refund of tuition through Friday,

only a 50% refund of tuition for any course you drop. The last day to drop courses with a
50% refund of tuition is Monday, June 6. For any course dropped thereafter, you will receive

Negotiation, Persuasion in Legal Writing, Seminar on Abortion Law, Summer
Externship, and Trial Advocacy have limited enrollments. Students will be able to register
for these courses through Friday, May 6, 2005. During this period, there will be no caps on
enrollment. Please remember, however, that the act of registration does not guarantee you
a seat in a limited-enrollment course. Instead, during the week of May 9 we will post on the
website seat assignments for any limited-enrollment course in which demand exceeded the
cap. Spaces will be filled according to a procedure which gives highest priority to senior
students. Where appropriate, waiting lists will be established and students will be required
to attend the first class meeting of the limited-enrollment course to learn if they are eligible
to advance to any vacancies which may occur.
IMPORTANT NOTE: Students who do not receive a guaranteed seat are strongly urged
to drop the limited-enrollment course via the website absolutely no later than Friday,
May 27. If you are subsequently given approval by the instructor to take a guaranteed
seat, the course can be added back to your schedule. If you fail to drop the course by
May 27 and do not receive a guaranteed seat, you will lose 50% of the tuition for the
