DSST is an effective method to provide your college with evidence of prior learning. In fact, the 38 exams available at a competitive fee compliment other credit by exam programs such as CLEP.

Consult with the university of your choice to determine DSST policies.

WCU's Test Center Appointment fee is $40 and is non-refundable. Special appointments may be arranged on a limited basis but may incur an additional charge. The Test Center appointment fee is in addition to the fee payable to DSST which is $100 (subject to change). 

You must pay for the DSST fee on the date of the test with a Visa, Mastercard or American Express Card. No other form of payment is acceptable. DSST does not accept Discover Card.
