Indiana Tech: Current Students: CPS Students


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 or 888.832.4742 to schedule an exam.

What is CLEP?

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?

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.
