Important News about Exam4

As of the May 2022 exam period, the Law School will no longer be using THES. Exam4 will be the only software for all exam types and modes. 

Required: Using the newest version of Exam4 

For each exam period, you are required to download a new version of Exam4. ITS will email you at your Net ID address when the new software is available. See our guide to Exam4 Essentials.

Recommended: Take a Practice Exam

You are strongly encouraged to complete a 10-minute Practice Exam. It is your responsibility to be proficient in Exam4 before your first exam. See our guide to taking a practice exam. 

Maintaining Anonymity

All exams are graded anonymously. If you have a problem or medical issue, do not discuss the problem with your professor. Do not add your email address or your name to your exam. If you have a medical issue, contact Student Affairs. For any other issues, please open a ticket.
