National Testing Center at Fort McCoy

This new collaboration with the U.S. Army Reserve's 88th Readiness Division on a National Testing Center at Fort McCoy creates a cost/time-effective opportunity for service members on active duty, in the National Guard and Reserve component, including the U.S. Coast Guard and spouses of the Coast Guard (active and reserve) to gain undergraduate college credit by passing DANTES-funded CLEP and DSST examinations. In addition, Air Force DoD civilian employees (excluding contract employees) are also eligible to participate in the program.
