DANTES Subject Standardized Tests Program
The DSST program is a nationally recognized program that gives students the opportunity to earn college credit for learning acquired outside of the traditional classroom.
The program, developed by The Chauncey Group International, a subsidiary of Educational Testing Service (ETS), is administered year-round by colleges and universities throughout the United States. No prerequisites are required to take the DSSTs; however, because requirements and acceptability differ from college to college, please receive approval from your academic counselor before taking any DSST.
Stritch accepts some DSST subjects, but does not administer the examinations. A maximum of 60 of the combined 60 credits allowable for all extra-institutional learning (30 toward an associates degree) may be earned through the DSST program.
