Sponsored by University of Maryland Global Campus, the National Testing Center administers electronic testing for the College-Level Examination Program (CLEP), Prometric's DSST Examination Program (formerly known as DANTES Subject Standardized Tests), and many Pearson VUE certification and licensure tests. Most exams provide the score reports immediately after you complete your exam. All CLEP and DSST test titles are available. NTC testing services are available to those with current base access. This includes active-duty service members, military retirees, spouses, and civilian employees of the military.


CLEP & DSST (College Course Equivalency Tests):

Held on Tuesdays, Wednesdays, and Thursdays with a limited testing schedule. All exams are by appointment only and scheduled via our online calendar. The calendar opens new appointments about 30 days in advance. Due to limited testing times, seats availability, and the demand for testing, many dates may be filled. But keep checking the scheduling link for availability as new openings and cancellations appear. If dates are available, they will show up on the calendar for you to select and create your appointment. You will then be sent a confirmation email with detailed exam requirements. If the calendar shows no availability, then the testing session is filled.
