Graduate Management Admission Test (GMAT®)
Civilian examinees should visit GMAC: www.mba.com/mba
DANTES funds only one administration of the GMAT exam per lifetime of eligible Service member.
The GMAT exam is owned by Graduate Management Admission Council (GMAC). They develop and deliver the exam with the help of their service providers: Pearson VUE and ACT.
The GMAT is a computer-adaptive test (CAT) available exclusively through Pearson VUE and select college and university test centers. The registration and scheduling policies and procedures are contained in the GMAT Handbook and on the GMAT website www.mba.com.
DANTES strongly encourages prospective military examinees to thoroughly review these two resources before registering for the GMAT.
The GMAT exam is made up of different types of questions so that you can demonstrate your ability in several skills required to be successful in graduate school. Effective June 5, 2012, the GMAT was structured into four sections: analytical writing (30 minutes), integrated reasoning (30 minutes), quantitative (75 minutes), and verbal (75 minutes).
DANTES reimburses eligible military examinees the GMAT test fee through the Defense Financial Accounting Service (DFAS) into their military pay bank account. Coast Guard personnel are reimbursed via a U.S. Treasury check. Military examinees are responsible for scheduling the GMAT and paying the test fee, and must seek reimbursement within 90 days from the test date. To determine eligibility requirements, test fee, and for procedures to request reimbursement of the GMAT test fee, contact the DANTES Test Control Officer at the servicing military education center.
