DSST EXAM EQUIVALENCIES

Students are eligible to receive credit for DSST (formerly known as DANTES) exams upon admission to a UAA certificate, associate, or baccalaureate degree program. Students pursuing an Occupational Endorsement Certificate are not eligible. Please verify your admission status before ordering a score report.

Credit awarded for DSST examinations may be elective credit. A student may work with an individual department to determine if more specific course credit may be awarded for a specific examination. In order to receive credit, scores must be received at the time of admissions or within the same term of taking the exam. Additionally, UAA must currently grant credit for the exam.

The UAA course equivalency for each DSST exam is subject to change.
