In addition, the JBER Library, has publications called Financial Aid for Veterans, Military Personnel, and Families that is available to assist with scholarships, grants and loans.
Spouses may be eligible for supplemental funding through spouse tuition assistance programs, such as MyCAA, the Air Force Aid Society Arnold Education Grant, and the Air Force Association Donley Spouse Scholarship.


The Education and Training Services Center (ETS) serves as the hub for all military testing, to include CDC, PME, DLAB/DLPT, WAPS, AFOQT, AFCT, and JST exams. The CLEP/DANTES testing program is administered by both Wayland Baptist University and the University of Alaska Anchorage.
Both the Base and Formal Training programs are managed by the ETS.
