Summer Survey

A survey has been developed to gauge the interest of students in summer enrollment.  Please take a moment to complete the summer survey as this will be very helpful for us in determining what courses may be offered during the summer term.   The survey can be accessed at

Please note that Law courses offered during the Summer 2020 term will be held remotely and will be graded on the standard (A-F) letter grade scale.  

Summer 2020 Financial Aid

  • 2 April 2020

Following is new information regarding summer 2020 financial aid, the last day for fall/spring federal loan increases, and FAFSA completion (Free Application for Federal Student Aid).

  • The last day for fall 2019/spring 2020 federal loan increases is April 20, 2020. If you are in need of immediate funds, please check with our office to see if you have any remaining federal loan eligibility, or if other options are available. For example, unusual medical expenses, loan fees that were taken out loans before they disbursed in the fall 2019/spring 2020 semesters, bar exam and character/fitness tests costs, child care expenses, or a one-time computer purchase are items that can be used to increase your Cost of Attendance, and thus, loan eligibility.
  • The Summer 2020 Addendum (Application) for financial aid is now available. It can be found on the internet under Financial Aid, in the “Docs” section on the right side of our page. The deadline for application is June 12, 2020. In order to qualify for a federal loan, students must be enrolled in at least five credit hours. These credit hours can consist of a mixture of classes, externships and/or directed research.
  • Students seeking federal aid for either Summer 2020, and/or Fall 2020/Spring 2021, should complete the 2020-2021 FAFSA as soon as possible. (www.studentaid.gov).

Exam information & exams on computer procedures

  • 1 April 2020

The spring exam schedule is posted on the Academic Services page of the TLS Intranet under the Exam Information link.   

 

Exams will be conducted remotely using the Examplify exam software, and will be available on the scheduled exam date at 9 a.m. Central Standard Time.  Faculty may elect to limit the time allowed for students to complete the exam (e.g., three hours for a three-credit course).  Students will be permitted to start the exam at any hour on the scheduled day, but the exam must be completed by 9 a.m. Central Standard Time the following day.

 

For professors who elect to give take-home exams, students will be provided an eight-hour window of time during which to complete the exam. This will allow all students an equal opportunity to start and complete the exam within the 24-hour period allocated for the exam without regard to the time zone in which they are located.

 

The Exam FAQ posted under the Exam Information link of the TLS Intranet should address most questions students may have about the exam administration process.
