Testing Services

UMGC also offers National Test Centers (NTC) featuring exams and certifications in a wide variety of subject areas, on-site support, easy scheduling, and the benefit of instant score results. Available exams include College Level Examination Program (CLEP), DANTES Subject Standardized Tests (DSST), Pearson VUE, and Excelsior College exams. If you are interested in earning credit or certifications through testing services, contact the test administrator at this location.

Computer Labs

The UMGC-sponsored computer lab has eight computers available for student use. Each computer provides access to the Internet, as well as a word processing, spreadsheet, and presentation software. The computers are located in an education center classroom, therefore availability depends upon classroom use. When the classroom is free, the computer lab is accessible from 0830-1630.

Directions and Parking

The UMGC office is in the Ansbach Education Center located on Katterbach Kaserne on the second floor of Building 5817. To find our location, take exit 52 on Autobahn 6 toward the city of Ansbach, then take Federal Highway B13 toward Nuernberg. The B13 eventually changes into the B14, and Katterbach Kaserne is located right off of B14. Continue down B14 until you reach the turn toward "Sachsen bei Ansbach." You will also see a sign that says “Katterbach Airfield.” After this turn, take the first right and you will see the main gate. After you have entered the gate, veer right and follow the curve around toward the left. Building 5817 is straight ahead on the right hand side of the street (there is an archway that is attached to the building). Enter the building through the launderette. Once inside the building, take a left past the barber shop, and go up the stairs to the second floor. The UMGC office is in Room 246. Parking is available by the front and sides of Building 5817.
