CLEP Testing for active duty is available for free at McMurry University (S.14th and Sayles Blvd) while we await the opening of our on-base National Test Center (NTC).

DISCUSSION: Our on-base CLEP/DSST NTC is currently in transition; Coastline Community College terminated their MOU, and McMurry University has been approved as the new NTC sponsor. During this transition, there will be a slight pause in CLEP testing on base as McMurry finalizes all the legalities to take over the NTC, but there is an avenue for Dyess members to take CLEP exams if needed during this transition. Effective immediately, active duty members desiring to take a CLEP exam will follow these steps:

1. Contact the Ed Center for records review, Library study resources, and instructions for DANTES funding/CLEP registration
2. Member will be provided contact information for Ms Sandy Lane, CLEP Test Coordinator at McMurry University
3. Ms Lane will provide sign-up instructions and testing location for her CLEP Test process (DSSTs are not currently available at McMurry)
4. McMurry University has graciously agreed to waive the $15 Admin Fee, so students will NOT pay out-of-pocket for CLEP exams taken off-base (except for retakes)

In a ceremony that took place yesterday morning, McMurry University is now the proud host of the Barksdale Trophy!

As a longtime community partner of Dyess Air Force Base, McMurry was chosen as a community host of the Barksdale Trophy. McMurry is the first local university to host the award!

The Barksdale Trophy was presented to Dr. Harper today in the Furr Welcome Center. The trophy will be displayed throughout the month in the Welcome Center and will also be recognized at upcoming events such as McMurry’s Annual Military Appreciation Football Game on September 22 and McMurry Homecoming October 11-13.

History of Barksdale Trophy:
The Barksdale Trophy is a community support award presented by the US Air Force Global Strike Command to the community that best supports its base. The award was instituted in 2017 and Abilene is the first community to win the award in Global Strike. Due to the overwhelming support by McMurry and others in the community, Abilene was selected as the recipient of the award.

Pictured L-R are Dr. Sandra Harper, McMurry University President, Ssgt. Meghan Westcott, SrA Trevour Burnes, Dr. Rosemary Wallace, Director of McMurry's Military Program, and Mrs. Jackie Vesey, Dyess Education Services Officer.
