DSST exam articulation
**The University of La Verne honors the recommendations of the American Council on Education (ACE) in regards to the awarding of college credit for DSST exams. Please note that there is the potential in some rare cases that the test results noted on a Prometric transcript for a DSST exam will not match information documented on the ACE website. In these cases, the University of La Verne will request the Registrar at ACE to review the exam in question and determine if the exam version and score earned is eligible to receive credit. ACE decisions will be the basis on which credit will be awarded at the University of La Verne, regardless of what is stated on the Prometric transcript. All DSST exam requests should be submitted to the Office of the Registrar via the GE Transfer Credit Review Form prior to completing the exam.
