Directions and Parking
The UMUC office is located in the Kapaun Education Center in Building 2784, Room 105, on the Kapaun Air Station (Air Force). The KMC bookstore is located in the same building, Room 104.
To find our location, please take Autobahn 6 (A6) until the Kaiserslautern/West Pirmasens/Opel exit. Take the second exit from the exit ramp and it will merge onto the German Federal Highway B270 leading toward the base. Remain straight on this road as you drive underneath the A6 and the road merges from two lanes into one lane. Continue straight over the bridge. After the traffic light, turn right into the Vogelweh Gate. Stay on the main road after entering the gate and follow the priority road to the left. Make the first left turn into the parking lot at the Kapaun Post Office. Building 2784 is located directly across from the post office.
Placement tests for English and math courses are available through your local UMUC office. Please contact your military education coordinator for more information.
UMUC also offers National Test Center (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.
