Availability of Professors' Old Exams. Many professors make their old exams available for students to review. Information about accessing old exams is available by clicking here.

Exam Emergencies.
 If an emergency occurs that may prevent you from taking a final exam, you or someone on your behalf should call Dean Sowle (312/906-5282) or Jenna Abhijeet (312/906-5005) as soon as possible. If you cannot reach either of us, call the Registrar's office (312/906-5080). Do not contact your professor about any problem connected with your exam, as this may compromise your anonymity. Please read Section VII of the Student Handbook, which contains the rules governing exams, exam conflicts, make-up exams, missed exams, and related issues; and review Article II of the Code of Conduct in the Student Handbook. 

•Consulting Laptops/Tablet Computers During Exams. Unless your professor specifically authorizes it, you may not consult materials (notes, outlines, etc.) stored on a laptop computer, iPad, or other tablet computer or electronic device during an open book or limited open book exam; you are limited to consulting print materials authorized by your professor. Please note: This is separate from the issue of whether you may write your exam on your own laptop. The limitation described above applies whether you are writing your exam by hand or on a lab or laptop computer.

•Cell Phones During Exams. You are not permitted to use a cell phone during any exam, including during any restroom breaks. If you have a cell phone with you during an exam, it must be turned off and stored out of sight.

•Exam Method Notices.


Notice about SofTest: Students taking exams on laptop must download and install the SofTest exam-taking program. 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. Click here for more information on SofTest and how to download and use it.


Unless a professor specifies otherwise, SofTest is configured to lock students out of other programs and services on their computers for the duration of the exam. This means that, unless a professor specifically authorizes access, students will not have access to notes, outlines, or other materials stored on their hard drive or the network.

Notice About Borrowing Laptops: The Information Technology Services department has a limited supply of laptop computers reserved for use in emergency situations that arise during exam period. These laptops 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 ITS department's laptops are not available for general loaning purposes during exam period. However, if you have exceptional circumstances that you believe justify borrowing a laptop for an exam, please contact Dean Sowle 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.

Prelminary Fall 2016 Schedule. The preliminary schedule of classes for the Fall 2016 semester is available on the Fall 2016 Quick Guide page. Print copies are available in the third floor elevator bay. Some additions and corrections may be made before the schedule is finalized.

NEW!  Unofficial Transcripts

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.
