DSSTs/DANTES Subject Standardized Tests

Southwestern College Professional Studies wants to give you credit for knowledge you have learned outside of the traditional classroom. One of the ways we do this is by accepting DSST Examinations (otherwise known as the DANTES Subject Standardized Tests). There are DSST Examinations in 37 undergraduate college subject areas.
