Testing Services

Placement tests for math courses are available through your local UMGC office. Please contact your program coordinator for more information.

A National Test Center (NTC) is not available on base at NSA Souda Bay. However, if you need to test or earn certifications, you may use the NTC at Sigonella or the NTC at Naples. For more information, consult with the education services officer (ESO) in Sigonella at DSN 314-624-4517.

Computer Labs

The College Office has a computer with internet access available for students and visitors during office hours.  Complimentary computer access is also available from the base MWR Library, located in the same building as the College Office, and at other MWR recreation buildings on base. The Coffee Bar and MWR offer open WiFi.

Directions and Parking

If you are traveling to NSA Souda Bay and plan to visit the UMGC office, please contact the program coordinator at least one week in advance to provide your ID information and obtain a base access number. The local program coordinator can provide a map showing how to drive to and find the base. It is a remote base and challenging to find.

Access for rental cars and unauthorized private cars is heavily restricted. You will have to park outside the main checkpoints and walk onto base, which is approximately 500 meters.

The UMGC office is centrally located in Building 49, in the Coffee Shop courtyard, across the street from the NEX and commissary. The base signage is very visible.
