There are not “set” ASVAB test dates like there are for the ACT or SAT. You can technically take the ASVAB whenever you please.

With that being said, schools who participate in the Career Exploration Program tend to conduct their ASVAB testing during the fall and spring.

If you will be utilizing a different ASVAB testing location other than your school, you can speak with a recruiter and find a time that works for you.

If you have your date set and you are preparing for the exam, consider using our ASVAB practice test to help prepare.

Where can I take the ASVAB?

You can take the ASVAB at a Military Entrance Processing Station (MEPS), Military Entrance Testing (MET) site, or through your school if they participate in the Career Exploration Program.
