DSST (DANTES Subject Standardized Tests) is a nationally recognized testing program
that provides students the opportunity to receive college credit for learning acquired
outside the traditional college classroom. College credits are available in many subjects.
The exams are computer-based. A fee is payable by credit card to DSST at the time
of testing. An additional proctoring fee of $33 will be charged by Mat-Su College
and is payable in Campus Cache or through the appointment scheduler.
Many students save time and money by taking DSST exams to gain college credit for
what they already know, whether it was learned by independent study, advanced high
school courses, professional development, or occupational skills. Taking DSST exams
can provide students the opportunity to satisfy prerequisite courses and move into
advanced courses.Students should talk with academic advisors to make sure the university
accepts the desired exam score and the exam is appropriate for students’ degree programs.

Each first time test candidate will be required to create a username and password
at the time of testing. Test candidates who have tested previously must use their
established login information.
In order to have scores sent to a particular institution, all testers must know the
institutional code before testing. To find this information, go to GetCollegeCredit.com.
