There are times over the course of the school year when Microsoft and Apple release updates to their operating systems. Please DO NOT apply these updates immediately if you are planning to use your computer to take mid-term and final exams, because some may not be compatible with ExamSoft.
Pepperdine Caruso Law uses a secure exam software to administer exams from ExamSoft.com. This software is sensitive to changes in operating systems because it is designed to ensure a totally secure exam environment. When there is a change to your OS, ExamSoft may no longer function properly.
If you have a Microsoft Windows computer, Windows 10 is your “OS” or operating system. If you have an Apple Mac computer, then you are running some variant of macOS (pronounced “mack oh ess”).
CALI [The Center for Computer-Assisted Legal Instruction] is a resource provided by Pepperdine School of Law for students that includes over 1,000+ interactive online tutorials written by law professors, on 50+ subject areas. This includes, but is not limited to topics such as, 1L-First Year Lessons, 2L-3L Upper Level Lessons, Administrative Law, Tax Law, Constitutional Law, Legal Research, Property Law, Civil Procedure, and Environmental Law. These interactive tutorials are an excellent resource to enhance your studies. You may find that one or more of your professors will require you to use CALI lessons in the course of your studies.
CALI Registration Code: In order to take advantage of the CALI interactive online tutorials, you will need to register with the CALI service. You will need the institutional registration code to do so. The Pepperdine School of Law CALI registration code is available in the Law Library at the Computing Support Desk at the Public Services Desk or you can send an email requesting the registration code to CALI-INFO@law.pepperdine.edu.
Quick Start: Once you have your registration completed using the above referenced code, you may find this Quick Start Guide helpful.
CALI also provides additional services including (but not limited to):
eLangdell: Free eBooks for Legal Education – before purchasing textbooks, consider checking out this resource to see if your textbook is available for free.
Classcaster: Free blogging and podcasting tools/network designed for law professors to supplement their course materials and link them to other colleagues around the country.
HOTMAIL Banned: As of August 22, 2012 theCALI organization has banned Hotmail Email Accounts due to a large number of spam issues. If you used a Hotmail Email Account to log in to CALI you have the following two options:
(1) Send an email to webmaster@CALI.org with your name and a non-Hotmail email address that you wish to use with your CALI account. The switch over will have to be done manually, so it’s entirely foreseeable that the process may get clogged up. If you want instant gratification and access….
(2) Create a new account using a non-Hotmail email address. Please note, if you do choose this option, you will lose all access to previous lesson run information. You will also need to obtain a valid authorization code. Speak with someone at the Computing Support Desk at the Public Services Desk for this information.
You cannot print if you do not have funds on deposit in your Waves Cash Global account.
Pepperdine University has multi-function devices (MFDs) from Sharp (you can still call them copiers but they’re much more). You will find two such MFDs in the public area of the Harnish Law Library at Caruso Law. Additionally, there is another MFD in the Career Development Office.
All enrolled students can print to all Sharp MFDs in public areas at any of the Pepperdine Southern California campuses (click here to learn about print credit for students enrolled at Caruso Law). This includes the color-enabled Sharp MFD in the Law Library public area. Printing in color or black and white is possible and a document with a mix of color and black and white pages will only incur the higher cost for color on the pages where there is color.
Typically, print jobs are sent via the web using a web-browser interface. In nearly all circumstances, your document that you want to print must be in PDF format.
You transfer/upload your PDF file to the print.pepperdine.edu site and select your parameters (number of copies, etc.). If you want to print in color, you want to select a “findmecolor” solution (see video here) or “findmebw” for black and white.
Then once the document is uploaded, you go to the copier nearest you — Caruso Law? go to Harnish Law Library and see the copiers not too far from the Public Services Desk.
“Tap” your ID card or type in your Wavenet credentials (there’s a slide-out keyboard stored under the copier’s screen), select the print job you want to “release” and you have your document!
On the first day of each term students enrolled at Caruso Law will receive $30 of non-refundable, non-transferable print/copy credit to be used through the University’s copy/print system called PaperCut.
PaperCut manages the copy and print functions of the Sharp Multi-function printer/copiers.
Note that the credit provided by the Caruso School of Law each term does not carry forward if a balance remains at the end of the term. The first day of a term is the first day of classes. The last day of a term is the day before the start of the next term (first day of classes for Fall, Spring, Summer).
New students will not receive credit until the first day of classes.
The credit provided by the Caruso School of Law can only be used for copy or print jobs. This credit cannot be used at the cafeteria for food purchases.
When the credit applied to a student’s PaperCut account is exhausted before the end of the term, further copier or print use must be covered by funds provided by the student in their Waves Cash Global account. If a student has funds in that account, there is no need for any action to be taken as the system will automatically charge the copy or print usage against the available funds on deposit in that account. If there are no funds in a student’s Waves Cash Global account, funds must be added to make copies or print.
Hurray! You’ve graduated (or will soon graduate) from Pepperdine Caruso School of Law! The last thing on your mind is your Pepperdine Email account, but there are some things you need to know…
COVID-19 NOTE – Updated 5/12/2021: This applies to all students graduating from any program at Pepperdine: Student email accounts, WaveNet, and other network-related resources are governed by university policy and managed by the university IT department. Student email accounts, WaveNet access, printing, Zoom, etc. will be deactivated 90 days after the date of the commencement ceremony. That’s the graduation ceremony (in Alumni Park – sun, sea air, etc.) which for the Spring 2020 on-ground programs is 5/22/2021 and for Spring 2021 is 5/21/2021. 90 days from 5/22/2021 is Friday, August 20, 2021. 90 days from 5/21/2021 is Thursday, August 19, 2021.
Recent graduates will receive automated notifications in their student email inboxes 90, 60 and 30 days before account deactivation.
After graduation a process starts that begins with your status changing from student to alumnus. This process involves a file transfer that takes place sometimes several days (up to four weeks) after graduation. Sure, you have the diploma but the system doesn’t recognize you as an alumnus until that file is transferred from the student system to the alumni system. Typically this takes place about a month after the date of your graduation. That’s when all the automated stuff starts up.
Note that student email accounts are disabled 90 days after the student’s commencement date (the day of the graduation ceremony).
Once an account is deactivated the data/emails in that account it is not recoverable.
But there’s good news. You’re an alumnus now! Alumni may obtain a free, email account through Pepperdine’s Alumni Association. You can find more information on Alumni Email at this website.
Part of this process also includes instructions on how to easily migrate your Pepperdine Google Drive contents to a new Alumni Google Drive account! The best benefit? UNLIMITED STORAGE!
After your student email address expires, no mail will be received at your student address. To make a smooth transition, the Alumni Association recommends:
Set up your new alumni e-mailaddress immediately when you get that email noted above.
Forward your mail in Wavenet to a new email address — that new alumni address or another one you prefer. (Note that forwarding will only work up until your student email account is suspended.)
Set up an out-of-office message in your Pepperdine Student Email (accessed through Wavenet) account informing all your contacts of your graduation and of your new email address. Log into Wavenet click on Options, and then update your Out of Office Assistant.
Using a PIN to access a University area with card swipe access — Where’s my PIN, What do I do if I forgot it or never knew what it is????
Every student, staff member and faculty member has a university-issued PIN or Personal Identification number for use with your ID card. Residential students use these all the time to enter their apartments or dorm rooms. You may not have needed your PIN until now.
The PIN is used in conjunction with the access control system at Pepperdine and is part of a two factor authentication system that requires a user to “have something” and to “know something” in this case you “have” your ID card which has a proximity chip in it and you “know” your PIN.
Don’t KNOW your PIN? Here are the instructions for retrieving your PIN.
PIN Retrieval App Instructions 1.Login to your personal WaveNet page using your Network ID and Password. 2.Select the Student Services tab and then ID Card PIN Lookup from the drop-down menu.
3.You will be prompted to read a disclaimer and select Agree.
4.You will then be required to login for a secondary security authentication.
5.The PIN information will displayed as follows:
6.If you are not currently setup in the access database you will be directed to the following screen: (You will see this screen for the first 20-30 minutes after your ID card is printed as the computer system updates. Check again soon.)
7.The PIN display screen will reset in 30 seconds and you will be re-directed back to the Disclaimer page. However, another session can be initiated by selecting Agree and following the process again as outlined.
Zoom releases updates fairly frequently. Some of those updates contain significant changes to the functionality of your Zoom installation. All provide a better overall experience because the Zoom engineers improve security and stability with nearly every update.
Pepperdine Caruso Law is dedicated to assisting you in making the transition to online teaching. To that end, we have created this guide. Please contact us with any questions!
Note: Only the host of the meeting may manage breakout rooms. A co-host will not be able to access this feature.
Please carefully read and follow these instructions for setting up breakout rooms in your online class meetings. You will need to be fully able to manage your online class breakout rooms. To view and download this document in a separate window, please click.
Enabling “Breakout Room” Setting in your Zoom account

How to create the Breakout Rooms and Assigning Students while hosting your Zoom meeting
Once you are hosting your Zoom meeting, the “Breakout Rooms” option will be shown at the bottom of the Zoom panel.
If you are sharing your screen, the button can be found under the “More” menu.
After clicking “Breakout Rooms”, you will be shown the eligible number of participants and asked how many rooms you would like to create. From here, you may either allow Zoom to assign your students to rooms “Automatically,” or assign the students to each room yourself “Manually.”
