The Armed Services Vocational Aptitude Battery is given every year to students who are interested in pursuing a military career. The test provides specific information to help explore both military and civilian careers. Taking the ASVAB does not obligate students to the military in any way. Representatives from the military administer the exam once during the school day each October. If you are interested in enlisting but missed this year's test, see your counselor or your recruiter to make individual arrangements.
