ASVAB

What is the ASVAB? 

The Armed Services Vocational Aptitude Battery (ASVAB) test is a timed, multi-aptitude exam. This test is given to many juniors and seniors at high schools all across the country, to aid in career exploration. Students serious about joining the military should definitely consider signing up, as each military service has a different minimum ASVAB score required for entering the service and/or holding different jobs. 

Those not interested in joining the military will still benefit from the test, as the program is designed to help students explore interests and determine which occupations may be a good fit. 

2023 ASVAB @ CAL

The FALL TEST is scheduled for 10/31 from 11:30 AM to 1:30 PM (on district half day)

Student Financial Aid

Men, born after December 31, 1959, who aren't registered with Selective Service won't qualify for federal student loans or grant programs. This includes Federal Pell Grants, Federal Supplemental Educational Opportunity Grants (FSEOG), Direct Stafford Loans/Plus Loans, National Direct Student Loans, and College Work Study.

It's important to know that even though he is registered, a man will not automatically be inducted into the military. In a crisis requiring a draft, men would be called in a sequence determined by random lottery number and year of birth. Then, they would be examined for mental, physical, and moral fitness by the military before being deferred or exempted from military service or inducted into the Armed Forces.
