CLEP & DSST Testing
CLEP and DSST (formerly known as DANTES) tests offer more than 80 opportunities to earn college credit for advanced learning without attending class, thereby saving time and money. CLEP and DSST testing refers to the College-Level Examination Program (CLEP) administered by the College Entrance Examination Board, and to the DSST testing program sponsored by the Educational Testing Service. Bellevue University is a National Testing Center for CLEP and DSST testing, held regularly at the Test Center in the R. Joe Dennis Learning Center on designated dates. Students may contact the Test Center, Enrollment Management, or Academic Advising offices for information regarding these testing programs and associated credit. In addition, ACT/RCE testing credit that students have earned may apply toward the degree.
The academic area responsible for each major determines application of transfer credits toward major requirements (including major electives). The academic area responsible for general education will determine application of transfer credits toward general education requirements. Decisions of applicability are subject to approval of the appropriate dean. Transfer credits not applicable toward the major or toward general education will be accepted as unclassified electives.

CLEP Military Initiative
Military members who are eligible may take CLEP tests without being charged a fee. Through this program, eligible test takers attempting a test title for the first time will not only have their exam fee funded, but the Bellevue University Test Center will also waive the $30 test administrative fee.
*Note: Each CLEP test title may only be taken once without a fee being charged. If a retake is required, this will be at the test takers expense.
