UVU DSST Policy & Procedures

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.

Before taking any DSST Exam

The minimum score required and the amount of credit granted through DSST Subject Examinations is determined by the appropriate departments.
Credit is granted according to the policy in effect at the time UVU receives proof of the DSST Exam and score. Policies are subject to change.

Students who have already taken DSST Subject Examinations must request an official DSST Transcript from Prometric to be sent to the Graduation Office to have their results posted on their UVU student record/transcript.
