Iowa City Test Centers 

Iowa City Test Centers provide face-to-face proctoring for online and paper-based exams. You must schedule proctored exams for Distance and Online Education courses no later than noon the day before your exam window. DOE Exam Services strongly recommends scheduling at least one week in advance as the Test Centers quickly reach max capacity during midterm and final exam weeks.
