The DANTES Subject Standardized Tests (DSST) were originally designed for military personnel pursuing college degrees, but DSST tests are now available to anyone who wants to save time and money on their education by earning credit-by-examination.

DANTES, a U.S. Department of Defense agency that supports educational initiatives for the military, continues to cover the $80 DSST exam cost and, in some cases, any test center administration fees for active duty service members. Veterans also may be reimbursed for DSST fees through the U.S. Department of Veteran Affairs.

Below you can see how your DANTES course will transfer into OTC:
