Help your student prepare for credit-granting exams like CLEP and DSST

CLEP and DSST exams are a versatile way for homeschool students to earn college credit before they graduate. By passing one of these exams, students can earn college credit at over 1,500 colleges and universities across the country. Test takers can earn credit in a wide array of subjects ranging from calculus to business. Each CLEP and DSST exam costs only $85 dollars to take, making them an extremely cost-effective way to integrate college credit into your student's studies.

Study.com offers preparation materials for 31 CLEP exams and 37 DSST exams, all of which are included in your homeschool membership. Once your student has mastered the material in our CLEP & DSST study guides, they will be ready to schedule and take their exam at a designated testing center. While CLEP and DSST exams are accepted at thousands of schools across the country, they are not universally accepted. Before taking a CLEP or DSST exam, it is important to first check with your student's desired college or university to ensure that they accept credit from these exams.

I love your videos. They really make learning easy and fun. The video courses break down subjects I have never been introduced to and put them in a way I can understand and remember. Thank you for providing this fantastic study tool. I tell all my friends about your amazing site!

Use Study.com to help prepare for Advanced Placement exams

For students looking to enroll in traditional colleges and universities, strong scores (4 or 5) on Advanced Placement (AP) exams can often be used for college credit. These exams are rigorous, highly regarded, and accepted for college credit at thousands of colleges and universities across the country. AP exams must be taken at an eligible school and are offered once each year in May.

Study.com offers prep courses for 26 AP exams, all of which are included with your homeschool membership. As with all alternative credit options, students should always check with their preferred college(s) and/or universities about their AP acceptance policy before signing up for their exam.

I always received poor grades in History. Study.com really helped me learn the material and I received my highest CLEP score ever!
