DSST (DANTES Subject Standardized Tests)
Through the DSST program, formerly known as DANTES, more than 1,600 participating colleges and universities across the United States award college credit to those who demonstrate that they have knowledge comparable to someone who completed the classroom course in a given subject. It is essential to first check with your academic advisor to see what DSST offerings fit within your current or proposed curriculum.
All DSST test titles are available via Internet-based testing. When taking a DSST test online, you will be required to create a username and password at the time of testing. The test fee is paid by credit card only. Candidates have two hours to complete their examination after they click "Begin Test."
Test Fees and Procedures
DSST exams are $80 payable on-line by credit card. There is a $15.00 registration fee payable at http://www.ius.edu/sdc/article/SDC_Online_Payment_Options. Please bring the registration payment receipt to your test session. Please call the Student Development Center at (812) 941-2312 to register for a test appointment.
Candidates testing online can receive immediate test results by viewing their unofficial score report at the end of the testing session.
If you do not receive a passing score, you may take the test again after 90 calendar days. Please do not attempt to take the test before 90 days have passed, because your test will be invalid, and your test fee will not be refunded. A date calculator can help determine when you may retake a test.
