Exam Software

At the discretion of each faculty member, students will be able to take final exams using their personal laptop computers. The Law Center provides the Exam4 software to students who choose to take their final exams on their personal laptop. Approximately 2-3 weeks before final exams begin each semester, students will receive an email notifying them that the software is available for download. There is a new version of the software every semester that contains that semester’s class list. All prior versions of the software from earlier semesters are time locked and will not work. Please take note of the operating systems supported by Exam4.

Once you have downloaded the software, take a practice exam all the way through the exam submission process to verify the software is working properly. Do not type any material in your practice exam that you wish to review later because it cannot be retrieved from the software. Also, verify that you choose “Practice Exam” for the course when running a practice exam in the software. If you encounter any problems with Exam4, please contact Law ITS at

If you experience any barriers using the Exam4 software due to a disability, please contact Law ITS at
