National Testing Programs

Several organizations offer popular examinations that upon successful completion of the exam(s), you may earn college credit. Talk to your Academic Advisor on how some of these National Testing Program credits may apply.


While in high school, you may have taken advantage of Advanced Placement (AP) courses. If you did, the University of Arizona Global Campus can evaluate those courses and may be able to apply them to your degree. To see how your AP credit may transfer, view the transfer guide.


Earn credit for what you already know through the College Level Examination Program (CLEP). Use these credits to satisfy requirements in your undergraduate program. View the transfer guide.

DSST EXAM (formerly known as DANTES)

Demonstrate knowledge in your field of study with DSST. If you successfully pass or have already passed a DSST, completion of your undergraduate degree may be closer than you think. View the transfer guide.

If they carry American Council on Education (ACE) or National College Credit Recommendation Service (NCCRS) recommended credit, they may still be eligible for transfer. Contact an advisor for more information.

The transferability of credits is subject to the University of Arizona Global Campus transfer credit policies and requires the submission of official transcripts. The official transcripts will be evaluated by the Registrar’s Office to determine the credits that will officially apply toward a UAGC degree program. Credits must be earned at the same degree level in order to be applied. Additional restrictions may apply. See the UAGC Academic Catalog for full undergraduate and graduate transfer policies.
