Exams are a great strategy to earn credit if you are comfortable with standardized exams and have prior knowledge of the exam subject area. NOTE, these tests do not replace the required upper division core courses.
About the CLEP and DSST Exams
Warner Pacific serves as a test center for DSST exams. Each institution independently creates exam calendars and proctors exams; DSST has no record of this information until each exam is launched in our computer lab and results are transmitted online.
Warner Pacific does not offer CLEP exams. For students needing to take a CLEP exam, please visit the College Board website to search for locations in the Portland area.
Please contact CLEP or DSST with questions regarding your exam or your scores.
