The nationally recognized DSST program allows you to earn college credit for learning acquired outside the traditional classroom (such as through independent study, on-the-job training, work, or military field experience). More than 1,500 colleges and universities recognize the DSST program and award college credit for passing test scores. Earning credit through DSST exams can shorten your path to graduation while reducing college costs.
