*Exams listed under "Electives" can be applied only as elective credit; however, all DSST exams listed above can be applied toward elective credit if general education credit is not needed.

NOTE:  Exams that duplicate prior college credit will not receive credit, and, therefore, should not be taken. DSST exams should be selected in conjunction with your degree completion plan.
