We’ll See You in Nashville! DSST at the NACADA Annual Conference
Back-to-school season kicks off Nashville-style with our participation at the National Academic Advising Association (NACADA) Annual Conference! This year’s conference, hosted at the Gaylord Opryland Resort & Convention Center in Nashville, Tennessee, will provide an ideal opportunity for school advisors of all kinds to learn about the benefits that DSST can bring to their institutions and students.
DSST identifies in more than one way with this year’s conference theme, “Empowering Students to Write Their Own Songs of Success.” Many students, from adult learners to active duty military members and their spouses, and returning veterans have all written their own success songs with the help of DSST exams for college credit.
Be on the lookout for conference attendees wearing “I LOVE GetCollegeCredit.Com” stickers. In the next few weeks, DSST will launch a campus awareness campaign as a means to refer and encourage new students to take our exams. To kick this off, we are asking attendees who currently offer, and naturally love, DSST exams to wear our stickers and help with the promotion of our program and spread the word about what we do.
The DSST Advantage
The advantage of testing with DSST is the ability for students to prove they know a college subject by taking one of 38 ACE-recommended exams—earn credit for it, and move on to more advanced classes, all while saving precious time and money. Not to mention; students can study at their own pace, schedule the exam at their convenience, and keep their DSST transcript no matter where they go. But they can’t do this alone. They need their college advisors now more than ever to help guide them through credit by examination and make the best out of this service.
Thursday October 4: 8:30 a.m. - 10:00 p.m.
Friday, October 5: 7:30 a.m. - 3:30 p.m.
Saturday, October 6: 8:00 a.m. - 4:30 p.m.
We encourage all advisors to come by our booth to learn how DSST can help on this mission.
Have a safe trip!
