    Note: Active duty/reserve military members only will check a box that states they are eligible for DANTES-funded exams during the registration process.
    By selecting this and providing the necessary information, the exam total will be $0.00 when you confirm the order at the end of the registration process. If eligible DANTES-funded exam candidates do not select this box during the registration process, it will associate a fee with the exam.
