​Dantes Standardized subject test(DSST)

DANTES Standardized Subject Test (DSST) examinations are based on undergraduate courses offered during the first two years of college study. They are developed by college instructors for the purpose of awarding college credit. Similar to CLEP examinations, DSST exams demand comprehensive subject knowledge. DSST examinations yield credit at YVCC when satisfactory performance levels are reached.

Successfully completed DSST examinations receive 'S' grades. Several YVCC degrees and certificates limit the total number of 'S' grades, so it is important to speak with an advisor about taking DSST examinations. Students must successfully complete one quarter at YVCC before DSST credits will be placed on their transcript. If the DSST class does not match a YVCC class, credit will be granted as elective credit in the distribution area listed.

To take a DSST exam, visit YVCC's Testing Services.
