Minimum System Requirements



Mock Exam

Examplify has a mock exam you can access so that you can see what your finals will look like and how the system will work. You can find the mock exam when you log into Examplify and look at the list of available exams to download. This exam is called “Mock Exam” and the password is mock2023.

It is critical that you have downloaded the Examplify software prior to the exam period and are familiar with how it works so that you can focus on taking the exam once it opens.

Exam Conflicts

Students are no longer required to apply for an exam conflict. The Office of the Registrar will move any exam in conflict to the next date for exam conflicts.

Under the conflict policy, the following constitute a conflict:

  • two exams on the same day
  • two exams in less than 24 hours (5:00PM and 10:00AM the following day) or
  • three exams in three days

Students will receive an email with their revised exam schedule at least one month prior to the start of final exams. If any student wishes to take an exam as originally scheduled, they must let the Office of the Registrar know within one week of receiving the exam schedule email.

Returning Examplify Users

Users are required to update to Examplify and become familiar with its layout and processes prior to the final exam period.

ExamSoft Procedures
