Iowa City Test Centers

Iowa City Test Centers provide face-to-face proctoring for ICON and paper-based exams. You can self-schedule your exam using the DOE Exam Scheduler. You must schedule your exam 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.
