So you found out that taking CLEP and DSST exams are free while on active duty. Now what? Which exams should I take? Well, it depends. What degree program are you interested in, what credits do you need, and what is your school’s transfer policy concerning accepting alternative sources of credit? Since the answers to these questions vary widely, the first place to begin is your local education center, where a counselor can help you find the answers that are just right for you.

CLEP and DSST exams helps you earn college credit for knowledge you've acquired through your military experience, independent study, prior course work, on-the-job training, professional development, cultural pursuits, or internships. They save you time (time not spent taking a college class). They save you money (money not spent taking a class). It allows you to stretch your tuition assistance (TA), GI Bill, Federal Student Aid, and/or scholarship dollars while you achieve your education goals.

To help you get started, take a look at the exams with the highest military student pass rate for FY 18.
