Mobile testing site allows military personnel to earn college creditGrantham University recently announced that it will be developing a mobile National Test Center (NTC) capable of providing computer-based testing for service members and spouses, allowing them to receive credit through the College Level Examination Program (CLEP).

College officials say that the school just recently began offering CLEP testing at its campus in Kansas City and through its mobile unit at locations around the U.S.

"This new initiative not only continues our mission of meeting the educational needs of service members; it also fulfills the desire for testing, not available previously, at many active duty, Guard and Reserve locations." said Jeff Cropsey, vice president for strategic initiatives at the school.

Experts say that the CLEP tests are accepted for transfer credit by hundred of colleges and universities, and are offered at no change to the military. Furthermore, credit obtained through CLEP saves millions of dollars in government tuition assistance each year while accelerating degree completion for service members.
