Online exams offered by appointment only at Northwestern University of Northwestern's division of College of Graduate, Online & Adult Learning (C-GOAL) offers DSST tests to earn college credit. The DSST credit-by-examination program has tests in more than 30 subject areas, including science, math, business, social sciences and the humanities. The subject matter reflects the kinds of things people might learn in nontraditional ways, such as on the job or through a hobby.
A fact sheet/study guide can be found at www.getcollegecredit.com. These give useful information regarding topics that will be covered, sample questions, books for review, the number of questions on the test, and the score recommended by the American Council on Education (ACE) for credit. Credit cannot be awarded for tests that overlap what is currently on your transcript(s).
A maximum of two tests may be taken during a session, Tests are administered by appointment only in the C-GOAL office located on the first floor of Nazareth Hall.
