Iowa City Test Centers 

Iowa City Test Centers provide face-to-face proctoring for online and paper-based exams. All proctored exams in Distance and Online Education (DOE) courses will be administered via Proctorio for Fall 2020.

The Iowa City Test Centers reopened in August 2020 following best practices set forth by the UI's Critical Incident Management Team to minimize risk of exposure to COVID-19 for students, faculty, and staff. Test Center use during the Fall 2020 semester is limited to exams that cannot be administered via Proctorio. 

The Iowa City Test Centers will operate at reduced capacity during the Fall 2020 semester.
