December 13, 2018 / Vincennes University earns CLEP growth award at
Naval Base Kitsap, WA
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 www.vinu.edu/military.
