DSST, fomerly known as DANTES and currently administered by Prometric, is a nationally recognized testing program with over 1,200 testing locations. Exams correspond to college-level subjects and allow students to demonstrate knowledge equivalent to that learned in a college course.
Stritch awards credit for all 38 DSST program tests, covering topics in six general subject areas: business, humanities, mathematics, physical sciences, social sciences, and technology. Exam credit may be applied, with prior permission, to courses taught at the undergraduate level or to fulfill undergraduate degree requirements.
A combined maximum of 60 credits of the allowable 60 credits for extra-institutional learning may be earned through the DSST program. Thirty credits may be applied to an associate's degree and up to 60 may be applied to a bachelor's degree.
