CLEP & DSST

The Testing Center at Aims Community College offers both the College-Level Examination Program (CLEP) and the DSST Subject Standardized Tests (DSST). Both programs give you the opportunity to obtain college credit for learning obtained outside the conventional college/university classroom.

Purpose:

There are a number of reasons why an individual would take the CLEP or the DSST:

  • To test out of introductory classes
  • To get credit for what you already know
  • To shorten the time to get your degree or certificate
  • To save on tuition fees
