Save Time and $$; Credit by Exam

This week I wanted to start a series of weekly posts that highlight benefits that can be used in pursuit of your education goals without using TA or incurring additional personal costs. The first is Credit by Exam. Save yourself both time and money by taking DSST and College Level Examination Program (CLEP) tests to help reduce the number of classes you may need for your degree program. You can earn college credit for what you already know by earning qualifying scores on introductory-level college subject examinations. Just remember the first time you take a test, it is fully funded; if you fail the test you will have to pay for any re-tests of that subject.
