• The ASVAB, Armed Services Vocational Aptitude Battery, is an aptitude test that measures developed abilities and helps predict future academic and occupational success. 


    You may have mistakenly heard that the ASVAB is only used by the military. The ASVAB is so much more than “a military test”!

    The version of the  ASVAB available in schools is one part of the ASVAB Career Exploration Program (CEP) and is used for career exploration and planning. It is different from the enlistment version of the ASVAB, which is primarily given at a Military Entrance Processing Station (MEPS) and used for recruiting purposes only. It is important to note that taking the ASVAB and participating in the ASVAB CEP does not obligate you to talk with military recruiters or consider a military career.

    The ASVAB Career Exploration Program (CEP) for high school students is a free aptitude test and comprehensive career exploration resource that helps teens determine their skills and interests and find careers that align with them. A federally-funded program, the ASVAB and its companion resources are available to postsecondary and all high school students in the 10th, 11th, and 12th grades.
