In recognition of the DANTES Subject Standardized Tests® (DSST) Program sponsored by Prometric, students may take various DSST Subject Examinations and receive various credits/courses at UVU based on the score received. Credit will be posted as a "CR" grade and will not be calculated in the GPA. Duplicate credit will not be awarded for courses previously completed at UVU or other College/University. Students may not receive DSST credit for a class which they are/or have been enrolled.
