Spring 2019 Final Exams.

•Exam Schedule and Exam Number. The Spring 2019 exam period starts on Wednesday, May 8 and ends on Friday, May 17. To find your Spring exam schedule, go to your Web for Students account and navigate to "Spring 2019" link under the "Schedule" heading in the lefthand menu. Your exam number will also be available there once they are assigned for the Spring. Exam room assignments for fixed exams will be provided prior to the start of exam period.

Exam Types and Distribution. There are three types of exams:

Fixed Exams: First-year doctrinal courses and certain other courses have fixed exams. Students will report to designated classrooms on specified days and times for these exams. The dates and times are listed on your Exam Schedule in Web for Students (see above).

Self-Scheduled Exams: Self-scheduled exams are those with time limits less than 24 hours (for example, 3-hour and 4-hour exams) where you are able to choose the date and time to take the exam, within the confines of the exam period. You do not need to preschedule the exam time. Self-Scheduled exams may be picked up outside the Exam Administration Office (Rm. 305) as follows:

   Wed., May 8 - Fri., May 10: 9:00am to 5:45pm 

   Sat., May 11: 9:00am to 11:00am

   Sun., May 12: No exams are given on Sunday

   Mon., May 13 - Thurs., May 16: 9:00am to 5:45 pm

   Fri., May 17: 9:00am to 12:00 noon

Please note: These times are pick-up times, not return times. For example, if you pick up a 3-hour exam at 5:45pm on a weekday, you will have the full 3 hours to complete the exam and must return it by 8:45pm. Also please note: 12:00 noon (not 5:45 pm) is the last pick-up time on Friday, May 17.

You must present photo identification to pick up your exam. Your exam will be time-stamped and you will then proceed to one of the designated Self-Scheduled exam rooms to take your exam using the Examplify exam-taking program. Examplify  will record a starting time for the exam as well as an upload time for your exam answers. Once you start the exam in Examplify, you must complete the exam. When you have uploaded your exam answers, return the exam questions to the Exam Administration Office (Rm. 305).

Further details about the administration of self-scheduled exams will be provided closer to the start of the exam period.

Take Home ExamsTake-home exams are those that allow students 24 hours or more to complete the exam. In some situations your professor may give you the exam during class; in other situations, the exam may be distributed electronically, or you may be required to pick up a physical copy of the exam in person. All submissions of take-home exam answers will be done electronically. Details about distribution and submission will be provided for each exam prior to the start of the exam period. Please note that you do not need to use the Examplify exam software for take-home exams.

The last day of exams is Friday, May 17. If you have a take-home exam that allows you to choose when to take it during the exam period, or a take-home exam that is due on the last day of exams, please note that all such exams must be submitted no later than Friday, May 17, at 12:00 noon. (This means that you may not start a take-home exam on May 17 and return it after that date.)

•Notices About Exams on Computer. Students taking fixed or self-scheduled exams on laptop must download and install the Examplify exam-taking program. (You do not need to use Examplify for take-home exams.) You will receive information from the Information Technology Services department 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 fixed or self-scheduled exams, you do need to download and install Examplify. We encourage all students to download and "take" a mock exam prior to the start of exam period in order to familiarize yourself with the Examplify program.

Unless a professor specifies otherwise, Examplify 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, the network, or the Internet.

The Information Technology Services department (ITS) will provide detailed information on the use of laptop computers and Lab computers during exams. For now, please make a note of the following items:

  • All students have to download the latest version of the Examplify software. Previously installed versions will not work for Spring 2019 exams.
  • The Examplify software will be available for download at a later date (you will be notified when it is available).
  • Windows 10 is the only supported Windows platforms for exam.
  • Alternate versions of Windows 10, such as Windows RT and Windows 10 S, are NOT supported at this time.
  • Only genuine, U.S.-English version of Windows operating systems are supported.
  • Hard drive: 1GB of available space or highest recommended for the operating system.
  • ExamSoft does not support tablet devices other than Microsoft Surface Pro (non-Pro Surface devices are NOT supported).
  • "Virtualized" Windows operating systems via products such as Parallels Desktop or VMware Fusion will not function for exams.
  • A native Mac version of the Examplify exam-taking software is available for Mac users to download.
  • Mac OS X 10.11 (El Capitan), OS 10.12 (Sierra), OS X 10.13 (High Sierra), and OS X 10.14 (Mojave) are the only supported Mac OS X platforms for exams.
  • Any individual found to be running an unlicensed or "pirated" operating system on their computer may be declined technical assistance.

To avoid any technical or computer difficulties, please make sure you bring the following items with you to the exam.

  • The contents of your ExamSoft Registration confirmation email

  • Your laptop power cord

  • Note: Use of a standard Ethernet network cable is encouraged in areas where there are ports available.

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 Examplify program. Because of limited supply, the ITS department's laptops are not available for general loaning purposes during exam period, including to students who do not own a laptop. However, if you have exceptional circumstances that you believe justify borrowing a laptop for an exam, please contact Jenna Abhijeet ( to discuss your situation.

Notice to Hand Writers: Students who choose to handwrite 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.

Replacement ID cards
Effective immediately, all Faculty, Staff and Students will be charged a fee of $20.00 for replacing an ID card.
