DANTES Subject Standardized Tests (DSST)
DSST’s are typically taken by persons in the military, but they are available to non-military persons also.
Note that UALR does not administer DSST’s, but we do give credit for the ones listed below.
If you have taken a DSST, note the following steps:
- Check the list below to see if the test you took is accepted for credit at UALR, and if you made the required score.
- If the answer to either question is no, you have no need to request a score report.
- If the answer is yes (that is, you took a test that is accepted at UALR and you earned a passing score as determined by UALR faculty), request that DANTES send an official score report to:
Director of Testing Services
University of Arkansas at Little Rock
2801 South University Avenue,
Student Services Canter 315
Little Rock, AR 72204
- Your score report will be evaluated, and a copy of the evaluation will be mailed to you.
- Note that some tests are still being considered. You may wish to delay requesting a score report until a final decision has been made.
