Dalton State adheres to the ACE recommendations on awarding credit for the DSST exams.

Students should check the college catalog for course equivalents, passing scores, and hours awarded for each test.  Also, students should consult with their advisor prior to taking any credit examination to ensure it fits into their degree plan.
