There is no application requirement to use the programs and services available through DANTES, with the exception of the Troops to Teachers program. Active members of the U.S. Armed Forces must possess a valid government-issued CAC ID which states their affiliation as Uniformed Services to be eligible for the no-cost programs and services that are available. Contact a military education counselor for your branch of service to get started.

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.
