DANTES DSST

The DANTES Subject Standardized Tests (DSST) is a national system of credit by exam. TTC is an open testing center for DANTES DSST examinations. The exams are available at the Main campus and the Palmer campus.

DANTES DSST examinations are computer-based, multiple-choice format and 2 hours long.  To be eligible to repeat an exam, a waiting period of three months is required.

Some exams have an optional essay section.  Contact the institution that will be accepting the credit to determine if the essay section is required.  Essay sections have to be ordered in advance and may take two weeks to be received.

Information about DANTES DSST examinations including the ACE recommended scores can be found online at http://www.getcollegecredit.com/.  Contact the institution accepting your credits to determine the required scores and policies.
