you have an exam conflict (as defined below), or you have a "serious illness

24 hours.•Exams Method Registration.
Students have three choices
for taking most exams: hand writing the exam, taking the exam on their own laptop
computer, or taking the exam on a lab computer. Some professors do not permit
one or more of these options (e.g., some require all students to hand write the
Assuming your professor has authorized you to take the exam on computer,
we will assume you are taking the exam on your own laptop. You need to register
your exam-taking method only if you wish to hand-write the exam, or take it on
a lab computer (subject to space availability). Please check with your professor
if you are uncertain whether computer use will be permitted for your exam.
you wish to register to take an exam by hand or on a lab computer, log into your
Webmail account, click on the Web for Students icon, and navigate to the Exam
Method Registration form. The form will be available beginning Tuesday, July
. The deadline for submitting an exam method request is Monday, July 7
Students taking exams on laptop must download and install the
SofTest exam-taking program. You will receive information from the Computer Center
about when and how to do this. Even though you do not need to submit an Exam Method
Registration form to use your laptop for exams, you do need to download and install
SofTest.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 me if you
opt 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. 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 me to discuss your situation.Notice
to Hand Writers:
Students who are hand writing an exam will be placed in the
same room used by laptop users for that exam. Hand writers will not be put in
a separate room. We will provide free ear plugs to any hand writers who believe
they may be distracted by the sound of the laptops.Class Ranks for
