The College-Level Examination Program (CLEP) and the DSST (formerly
called DANTES) program allow you demonstrate your knowledge in certain
subject areas by passing standardized exams. You can earn credit for
what you’ve learned through self-study, advanced high school courses,
non-credit coursework, on-the-job training, or cultural pursuits.
Indiana Tech awards credit for passing both CLEP and DSST exams, and
Indiana Tech administers both exams at its Fort Wayne, Indianapolis, and
Elkhart campuses. Contact the Warrior Information Network at

What is CLEP?
exams are offered by College Board, the same organization that
administers the SAT. The exams are available for more than 30 courses.
Credit for each exam varies from 3 to 12 credits. All CLEP exams are
administered by computer. They are each 90 minutes long and consist
mostly of multiple choice questions, except for the Freshman Composition
with Essay exam. A passing score is 50 or higher (70%).
What is DSST?
began as a program to support education opportunities for military
personnel, but anyone can take a DSST exam. There are almost 40 exams
available for a variety of courses in math, social sciences, humanities,
business, and physical science. DSST exams are administered by computer
and are 90 minutes long. Passing scores depend on the exam.
