DSST or DANTES Subject Standardized Tests are offered at the BPCC Testing Center and BPCC BAFB Testing Center. Originally developed for members of the military, anyone can take a DSST exam. DSST exams provide the opportunity to receive college credits for what you already know by earning qualifying scores on DSST examinations. The knowledge you have already acquired through independent study, on-the-job training, prior course work, cultural pursuits, professional development, or internships can help you earn college credits.

DSST exams are available on the BPCC campus at the BPCC Testing Center and the BPCC BAFB National Test Center.

The administrative fee for DSST exams is $30.00 unless you are DANTES eligible. There are two parts to making an appointment for a DSST exam. First, schedule an exam time at a BPCC testing center using the links below. Second, create a Prometric account at DSST Create an AccountWill open new browser window or tab. The $87 fee to Prometric is paid as part of the exam launch on the day of your test so bring a credit or debit card.

Two valid forms of identification are required for all DSST exams along with your Prometric DSST user name and password.

Bossier Parish Community College does not accept or award credit for all of the DSST examinations. Refer to the Prior Learning Assessment Matrix (PLA) for more information on exam credit recognized by BPCC. It is the responsibility of the tester to confirm that your school awards credit for that particular CLEP test.
