Students must use a mouse. (Note: The exam, if taken at SPU, requires this.)

Students must use Excel® in Microsoft® 365®, which is available through SPU’s Computer Information Services department. You can download the software from the SPU Download Center or contact help@spu.edu for IT assistance.
