DSST Credit

DSST Credit

DSST exams are college subject tests that offer college credit for knowledge acquired outside of a traditional classroom.

Students enrolled at the University of Utah who receive scores of 400 or higher on approved DSST exams may be awarded 3 semester hours per exam.

DSST exam scores may be submitted to the University of Utah in one of two ways:
• Order Official DSST scores via Parchment
• Request a Joint Service Transcript (JST)

Official DSST scores will be evaluated and all qualifying exams will be automatically posted for credit.

Scores received via the Joint Service Transcript (JST) will be considered as part of the JST evaluation. As JST credit is considered voluntary, a student must send an official copy of their transcript and meet with their advisor to discuss potential credit. Please note that the JST is not evaluated for potential credit until after a student matriculates. To see the most up-to-date DSST credit articulation policy, please see the document below.
