How long after I submit my payment will I receive my email with scheduling instructions?

The time it takes for us to process your payment may vary.  If you make your payment Monday-Thursday, as a general rule, you will receive the email within one day.  If your payment is made Friday-Sunday, or while our office is closed (due to a Holiday, weather event, etc.) you will receive the email during our next business day.  Please see our hours.  If you don't receive the confirmation email, first check your spam folder, and if necessary .

How much CCU academic credit will I get if I pass my DSST exam?

CCU does not currently offer any academic credit for DSST exams.  

What do I bring to the Testing Center?

You will need to bring a valid, government-issued ID, such as a driver's license or passport with a name that exactly matches your DSST registration.  If you have any questions about whether your ID would qualify, call the ATC at 843-349-4011.

Bring your credit/debit card with you as you will need to make a payment directly to DSST for your test.  

Please review our Testing Center Policies page for other considerations as to what you should and should not bring with you.

Will I receive a score the day of my test?

Yes, an unofficial score report is printed for you at the end of your exam.  For official score reporting guidelines, see the DSST website.
