Credits through the DSST Subject Standardized Test


Under an agreement between the Chauncey Group International (Chauncey), a subsidiary of Educational Testing Services (ETS), and the U. S. Department of Defense, Southeastern Louisiana University is allowed to administer the DANTES Subject Standardized Tests (DSSTs). DSST tests may be taken in the Office of Testing at Southeastern by appointment only. A non-refundable administrative fee is assessed for each exam.

Credit will be entered on a student's transcript upon receipt of an official transcript from the Chauncey Group, provided the student achieves at or above the score accepted by Southeastern. A grade of P will be given and the course will not be computed in the student's average. Unsuccessful attempts will not be recorded against the student.
