See the information below about how and when exams are administered at Baylor Law:
Only testing material is allowed on your desk during exams. Jackets, sweaters, and coats should be hung on the back of the chair if not worn.
All purses, briefcases, and backpacks are to be stored in front (below blackboards) of the classroom while the exam is in progress.
Do not leave personal effects in public restrooms unattended during finals, i.e., books, papers, and backpacks.
Restrooms will be checked before and during testing for anything unusual. Unattended items will be confiscated.
If using a computer for an exam, a full-size keyboard may not be used (to keep noise down).
Smartwatches may not be used during exams.
Headphones may not be used unless approved by the professor.
No cell phones are allowed on the desk during exams. If you need to be accessible in case of a family emergency, please discuss the situation with Dean Wilson, your professor, Jerri Cunningham, or a proctor before the start of the exam. Arrangements will be made for a staff member or proctor to hold your cell phone and answer it as instructed.
After finishing an exam and leaving the classroom, please remember that others are still testing. So please refrain from gathering and talking outside of the classroom.
Law students are assigned three random four-digit exam numbers each quarter for use on projects, midterms, and final exams.
Students are assigned a number with "P" in front of it for projects, i.e., P1111.
Students are assigned a number with "M" in front of it for midterms, i.e., M1111.
Students are assigned a number with an "F" in front of it for final exams, i.e., F1111.
When using each number, include the letter in front of the number.
You can look up your exam numbers for the current quarter in Bearweb. Once in Bearweb, select Distinct Student Populations, then choose Law School Menu.
Students who plan to write their final exams by hand must let the Registrar know.
Each quarter, during the last month of class, but before the last day of class, students should email Jerri_Cunningham@baylor.edu to indicate their plan to handwrite exam(s). When emailing, please include the courses for which you plan to handwrite.
Baylor's Office of Access and Learning Accommodation can provide services and resources to facilitate equal access for disabled students.
