The University of Arkansas at Monticello has entered into a partnership with the Little Rock Military Entrance Processing Station (MEPS) to begin administering the Armed Services Vocational Aptitude Battery (ASVAB), according to Laura Hughes, director counseling, testing and career services. 

Persons interested in enlisting in the military will be able to take the online version of the ASVAB offered through the Department of Defense Internet Computer Adaptive Testing (ICAT) system. UAM is the first educational institution in Arkansas to become an ICAT site. According to Hughes, testing should begin in June with exams offered twice each month.

The ASVAB is part of the application process for the military. The ICAT offers applicants who live great distances from the Little Rock MEPS the opportunity to take the ASVAB near their homes.
