One recent Walton graduate first learned about the ASVAB during Junior Advisement. He signed up to take the ASVAB during his junior year. His scores identified him as a potential candidate for the military’s highest scholarship. He was recruited by the military and in early spring, he accepted a check for $180,000 to attend AUBURN University.
