The DSST Program is a nationally recognized testing program that gives you the opportunity to receive college credit for learning acquired outside the traditional classroom. Hinds Community College serves as a testing site for the DSST program.

All tests offered under the DSST program are available to the student. At the current time, Hinds Community College does not award college credit for courses taken under the DSST program; however, many transfer colleges and universities do utilize such credit. Students wishing to take a DSST examination should contact their transfer school before sitting for the examination to determine if the credits earned by this method will transfer.

To arrange a DSST examination, contact the Counseling Department on the Raymond Campus at 601-857-3467. The cost of a DSST test is $80 per test. There is an additional $30 assessment fee that must be paid in the Hinds Community College Business Office.
