Credit Through Examination

Students may choose to complete test examinations to earn credit for courses. SCPS accepts test scores from:

  • Advanced Placement (AP) Exams, which is a series of tests developed by the College Board initially for AP High School courses, including 34 exams in 19 subject areas.
  • DSST Credit by Exam Program, formerly known as the DANTES Program, tests knowledge of both lower-level and upper-level college material through 38 exams. Some apply to SCPS major requirements. Others will provide general elective credits.
