- Vouchers obtained on My Account permit DANTES funded testers to indicate that they are military to negate any applicable fees, select where they wish their test scores to be sent, and permit any testers who are self-funded to pay the $90.00 testing fee.
- Self-funded testers will continue to pay the $30.00 test administration fee to Butler Community College in the Education Office.
