Important Laptop Exam Information

If you received an email message regarding your secure exam account, please read it carefully and complete any requirements, if you have not done so already. If you did not take a practice exam, you should have received an email stating that your account has been disabled and you must write all exams by hand. By taking a practice exam, you are not required to take your exams on the laptop, but have that option. Any issues or questions regarding the status of your secure exam account, or the email you received, should be directed to the Registrar's Office.

PC users only, starting tomorrow, December 2, you will be able to download your final exams on your laptop by going into the Secure Exam Student application and doing a 'Get Exams and Licenses'. MAC users do not have to do this step. If you have any technical issues please contact Manson Seto (setom@duq.edu) or Milan Komljenovic (komljeno@duq.edu) for assistance.
