DSST Exams

DSST (formerly DANTES Subject Standardized Tests) are credit-by-examination tests originated by the United States Department of Defense’s Activity for Non-Traditional Education Support (DANTES) program. DSST measures earned achievement in specific college courses and in calculated credit hours. No duplicate credit can be earned nor will grades be assigned to credits earned.

SCF awards credits based on the following exams and exam scores. Students must request that official DSST scores be sent to the Educational Records office for evaluation and awarding of credit**.
