DSST

The Defense Activity for Not-Traditional Educational Support - DANTES or DSST is a credit-by-examination program, similar to CLEP.

DSST tests are given in the Testing Center and are computerized exams.

On the day of the exam, arrive at the Testing Center at least ten minutes before your scheduled exam. The test fee is $80 (money order or certified check, cash will not be accepted). It should be made payable to Thomson Prometric. Students must also pay a $20 administration fee (non-refundable) in the Business Office at time of pre-registration. If an essay is required for the exam, a $15 fee also is charged, and is payable in the RCC Business Office. Please bring or mail the registration form to the Testing Center at least three weeks prior to test date, with your receipt from the Business Office. A photo I.D. must be presented to be admitted to the exam. Acceptable forms of I.D. include a driver's license, military I.D., or current passport.

For additional information you may contact the Testing Center at 405.422.6274 or visit the DSST web site.
