Dantes Subject Standardized Tests (DSST)

Before 2004, the DSST exams were available only to military personnel through DANTES (Defense Activity for Non-Traditional Education Support), a division of the Department of Defense that provides educational support to military members. In 2004, the tests were acquired by Prometric and became available to anyone seeking college credit including college students, adult learners, high school students and military personnel.

The following DSST examinations have been reviewed by university faculty.  Upon receipt of an official score report from Prometric, the Office of Admissions and Records will assign a grade of “TST” and grant credit as specified below. A maximum of 60 semester credits may be earned in any combination of non-traditional learning examinations and applied to a bachelor’s degree
