The DSST (Dantes Subject Standardized Tests) is an examination-for-credit program developed by Thomson Prometric that expands and complements the range of tests offered by the CLEP (College Level Examination Program) and other similar programs.
Through DSST, you can receive college credit for what you already know, including knowledge acquired outside the traditional classroom.
Thirty-seven different DSST examinations are available in fields related to Applied Technology, Mathematics, Humanities, Physical Science, Business, and Social Science. A complete list of DSST exams can be found in the DSST Candidate Information Bulletin, available by request at most AMIDEAST offices and on the DSST Web site.
The College Level Examination Program (CLEP) allows you to obtain recognition for college-level achievement on examinations and earn credits in undergraduate degree programs and universities in the United States and overseas.
Wherever or however you have learned and no matter what your age, you can take CLEP exams. If the results are acceptable to your college or university, you may receive course credit, thus shortening a degree program or allowing you to begin with more advanced courses than would otherwise be possible.
CLEP offers examinations in thirty-four different subject areas. Each exam is ninety minutes in length.
Contact the admissions office of the college or university that you are interested in attending. They can tell you if they are among the 2,900 institutions that accept CLEP examinations for credit or advanced standing, as well as which examinations they accept, the scores they require, and the number of credit hours that they grant for each examination that you pass successfully.
