The Iowa City Testing Center is lin Room 243 and can be reached at 319-887-3642. We are open on a walk-in basis Monday-Thursday from 9 a.m.-8 p.m. and on Fridays from 9 a.m.-5 p.m. Hours may vary on holidays and student recess days.

To ensure proper course placement, incoming students must have established test scores in reading, English composition and mathematics. The test center offers a free COMPASS test to measure current academic skill level. ACT mathematics scores less than one year old and reading and English scores less than two years old are accepted.

The testing center handles make-up exams, Distance Learning tests and placement exams. There is no charge for testing services. A photo I.D. must be shown for all types of testing. This policy is strictly enforced, and no exceptions can be made.
