Dantes at UTSA

National Dantes examinations are offered monthly through the UTSA Testing Services offices.

To be eligible to receive UTSA credit for the Dantes exams, a student must have earned no college or university transcript credit in that subject area at the time he or she takes the examination.

Although it is not necessary to be a UTSA student to take a national Dantes test through the UTSA Testing Services office, no UTSA credit is awarded until the individual is registered for courses at UTSA. Individuals seeking credit from another college or university should check that institution’s credit by examination policies before registering for a national CLEP examination.

The following Dantes exams are accepted for course credit at UTSA, if they were taken on or after January 1, 2004. Any Dantes exams taken prior to that time period are not accepted for credit at UTSA.
