Earn college credit for what you already know!

FLCC offers tests that award credit for knowledge and experience.

If you've been in the workforce for awhile, you've likely gained some of the same skills and knowledge that are taught in college. So, while you may have your sights set on a degree, you might also feel that you already know a lot of the things that are taught in college, so you might be concerned that working toward a degree will involve some busy work or be a waste of time for you. Luckily, you can skip the classwork that you already know!

Dantes Standardized Subject Tests (DSST)

FLCC offers Dantes Standardized Subject Tests (DSST) to give you the chance to show your expertise, and successful test completion will enable you to earn college credit for a corresponding course. With DSST, you can focus your time and studies on the other classes that are needed for your degree. It also gives students more course options, alleviates the high stakes testing associated with AP and IB courses, and provides the academic edge needed for acceptance into highly selective colleges.


Each Dantes Standardized Subject Test costs $150. For the cost of the test, you are able to earn college credit for one course.
