DSST (Dantes)

As a form of prior learning assessment, DSSTs offer you a cost-effective, timesaving way to use your knowledge acquired outside of the classroom (perhaps from on-the-job training or independent study) to accomplish your educational goals. The DSST test is frequently used in conjunction with CLEP tests by students who are pursuing their degree in a non-traditional format. DSST credit is available for both upper- and lower-level courses, but only for the courses listed below.
