As one of the most respected names in education and career guidance, Peterson’s Government Services focuses on reducing the cost of higher education, as well as career exploration and placement for those serviced by colleges and state and Federal government agencies. We are focused on three outcomes: empowering individuals to accelerate their education with an emphasis on academic remediation, degree completion, and preparing individuals for today’s relevant, high-growth careers.
We accomplish this with high impact solutions to address college placement, credit for prior learning, preparation for standardized exams including credit by examination, financial aid research, and career planning. Our tools are delivered through customized education and career portals—including mobile applications.
Our innovative web-based solutions succeed in helping individuals receive credit by examination for the College Level Examination Placement (CLEP*) and Dantes Subject Standardized Test (DSST®). Our solutions for academic preparation for the SAT*, ACT®, GRE®, GMAT, among others, provide government-funded agencies with the tools to help individuals accelerate their degrees and increase employment rates. In addition, our test preparation and career certification tools are available for many of the high-growth, portable careers identified by the Department of Labor and ease transitions for military service members, their families, displaced workers, and adults involved with career transitions.
