CHEYENNE, Wyo. (AP) — A University of Wyoming student who tried to sell copies of old tests over the Internet, then gave them away, has been ordered by the school to remove the material from his Web site.

Aaron Narva also was charged with violating university regulations; a hearing was scheduled for tomorrow.

In a telephone interview last week, Mr. Narva said he set up the site as a clearinghouse for study materials, offering old tests, quizzes, study guides and student notes.

Mr. Narva removed the materials from the site last week after university attorney Susan Weidel sent him a letter saying the university would “consider taking appropriate legal action” unless he did so.

Mr. Narva said old tests have helped him focus on what professors deemed important, and that he thought students would appreciate a central repository for such material.

“The athletics department has tests that they let their students study from. Fraternities and sororities have them,” Mr. Narva said. “The reason I set this up was so it would be easier to find all of that. I don’t know if you’ve ever seen a fraternity filing cabinet, but it’s not always easy to find things.”
