DSST (formerly DANTES Subject Standardized Tests)

DSST testing is one way learners can demonstrate their knowledge and competency in a subject area
and earn college credit. The college will recognize competency demonstrated through the successful completion of DSST exams. 

For detailed information about the DSST exams, visit
http://www.getcollegecredit.com/ and consult the Granite State College course catalog by visiting http://www.granite.edu/academics/schedule.php.


You may sign up for one test per registration. Every DSST test is available on each testing date. You are given 2 hours to complete a test and you may take only one exam per test session. Payment for testing is made online by credit card only on the day of the test. Every DSST test is available on each testing date.

Your score will appear on the computer screen upon completion of the test and will be mailed to the institution you specify within ten business days (unless you wrote an essay), and your official score will arrive in the mail within 2-3 weeks.

You cannot retake the same test within 90 days. 

On test day, you must present an official form of identification. The ID must contain either a photo or signature. Military test candidates should bring a military ID.

The fee is $30 to register (below), and $85 (starting February 1, 2018) on the day of the test (paid online to DSST), making the total cost $115 per computer-based DSST test.
