DSST exams offer academic testing to military service members.
DSST exams made available to military and civilian examinees just two years after Prometric took over administration of the exams.
The list of DSST exams offered continues to grow – honored by thousands of universities and colleges throughout the US.
The DSST test taker audience has changed over the years, but as of 2006, DSST exams are available to anyone who is seeking college credit outside the traditional classroom, including college students, adult learners, high school students and military personnel.
Many confuse DSST with DANTES (Defense Activity for Non-Traditional Education Support), which is a division of the Department of Defense that provides educational support to military members. In 2004, the exams were acquired and are now owned and administered by Prometric.
There are several upper and lower-level courses available in a variety of subjects – everything from social sciences to history to business. The exams are $80 each, a steep cost savings compared with a typical $750 three-credit class. DSST exams not only save you money, but can also accelerate degree completion so you can quickly begin your dream career!
Prometric is the global leader in testing and assessment services and owns and administers DSST exams.
