DSST (DANTES Subject Standardized Tests)

The DSST tests (formerly called DANTES) allow students to earn college credits for knowledge acquired outside of the traditional classroom. DSST exams are comparable to final undergraduate course examinations. 

DANTES funds DSST testing for eligible service members and personnel at DANTES military test centers. The DSST exams are also available for use by civilians/non-military persons.
