Examinations for Undergraduate Credit: DSST and CLEP

Over 2,900 accredited colleges and universities in the United States will award undergraduate course credit for success on the College-Level Examination Program (CLEP) developed by the College Board and/or the DANTES Standardized Subject Testing Program (DSST) offered by Thomson Prometric. Some will grant as much as a full academic year of credit for success on such examinations, saving you significant time and money.

Both tests are offered in limited overseas locations, including in the United Arab Emirates and Kuwait, though not currently in Iran. Many U.S. colleges and universities also have centers that administer the tests and will grant credit for these tests, not only at the time of admission but also later in the student’s academic career.

Below is a list of the subjects for which CLEP and DSST tests are available. Check with U.S. colleges and universities in which you are interested to obtain the most current and complete information on their policies related to awarding undergraduate credit for these examinations.
