DSST Credit by Exam Program (formerly DANTES)


Taking the Defense Activity Test and Examination Services Subject Standardized Tests (DSST) can shorten the time it takes to earn your degree, can allow you to skip general introductory courses, and can even satisfy a proficiency requirement by demonstrating that you've already mastered the content. The DSST can reduce the number of courses you need to graduate, saving hundreds of dollars in tuition. The DSST offers a way to receive credit for “what you know.”
