NAVAL BASE KITSAP, Wash. - Vincennes University at Naval Base Kitsap has earned recognition from the College Board for the highest percentage growth in College Level Examination Program testing in Washington state during the 2017 competitive cycle.

“The length of time to complete degree requirements can be significantly decreased by completing CLEP or DSST exams,” stated Jeff Dobson, site director, VU Military Education Program. “Having the ability to complete degree requirements through comprehensive testing provides a great advantage to motivated students who may not be able to take college courses conventionally, or have busy work schedules.”

VU provides CLEP/DSST/Pearson VUE via National Test Centers on board Naval Base Kitsap, Naval Air Field El Centro, Naval Air Station Fallon, and USCG Station Astoria. More information on Vincennes University National Test Centers is available at
