Dantes Subject Standardized Tests (DSST) Table

Florida Statute does not require the ACC to establish minimum course and credit equivalents for the DANTES Subject Standardized Tests (DSSTs). However, pursuant to Florida State Board Rule 6A-10.024, transfer of credit must be accepted based on the following recommendations. Institutions must use the course number listed, unless it would be advantageous for the student to award a specific course number with equal credit that satisfies program prerequisites. The DSST exams, unlike Advanced Placement, are not built around curriculum, but rather are designed to test students' knowledge on a variety of college-level subjects, regardless of where they may have learned the material. Exams are developed by committees of college faculty. Norming forms of DSSTs are administered to college-level students who are completing courses for credit in various subjects. More information about DSSTs, including descriptions of test content and sample examination questions, is available at www.getcollegecredit.com/.
