DANTES is not a test or a program that you apply for. We are authorized by the Department of Defense (DoD) to sponsor voluntary education support programs and fund test fees of the GED, ACT, SAT, DSST, CLEP, GRE, GMAT and Praxis exams for eligible military members. 

Using the no-cost education benefit programs that are sponsored by DANTES, helps military students plan, prepare for, and access quality education benefits and opportunities as they pursue off-duty, voluntary education while serving in the military. Combining these programs with GI Bill education benefits can reduce the amount of time and money it takes to complete degree requirements.

Service members must possess a valid Geneva Conventions "Uniformed Services" Common Access Card (CAC) to be eligible for the voluntary education support programs and to take the sponsored exams on a DANTES-funded and/or reimbursable basis.

NOTE: The exams that DANTES sponsors are commercially-owned products that members may continue to take on a self-funded basis, after discharge or retirement from active duty service.
