CLEP & DSST Testing
Posted By sbaletsa On June 16, 2009 @ 2:35 pm In | Comments Disabled
The College Level Examination Program (CLEP) helps students earn credit for what they already know, regardless of how that knowledge was acquired. By receiving a satisfactory score on a CLEP exam, students can earn up to 12 college credits toward a college degree, depending on the exam subject and the policy of the college.
The DANTES Subject Standardized Test (DSST) is an effective method to provide your college with evidence of prior learning.
The fee for each CLEP® exam is $80.00. CLEP® registration and payment must be made in advance by test-takers online through the College Board – My Account registration portal. Go to http://clep.collegeboard.org/. Print your registration ticket with your voucher number and bring it on the day of your exam. CLEP exams and optional essays are free to military personnel, and eligible civilian employees with proper military ID.
DSST Registration and Fee Information
DSST exams are Internet-based exams which you can get by going to the DSST website, http://www.getcollegecredit.com/pdfs/exam-list.pdf. NOTE: Not all test forms listed are available to each testing site. A confirmation will be sent to you upon receipt of your application and fee.
You must bring your school code with you for reporting purposes when you come to test. You can get this by either going to the DSST website, www.getcollegecredit.com, or calling your school for the code. You should confirm that your school does accept DSST credits.
The DSST Testing Fee of $80.00 per test is collected on the day of the test payable by valid credit card or debit card. Personal checks and cash payments cannot be accepted.
See above for list of acceptable forms of ID.

Please note: Northern Essex Community College does not award credit for all of the CLEP exams that are provided by the Academic Placement & Testing Center. Northern Essex Community College awards CLEP & DSST credits earned by the achievement of the required scores listed in the CLEP & DSST General/Subject Exams. The score requirements are set through the recommendation of the American Council on Education and based on review by faculty at Northern Essex Community College. If you are taking a CLEP/DSST exam for another institution, you should check with that institution to find out which CLEP & DSST credits are awarded.
