Georgia State University (GSU) serves as a national test center for DSST exams. Because policies regarding DSST credits differ at various institutions, candidates should verify which tests are accepted by their respective schools. All DSST exams are offered on the computer with the exception of Principles of Public Speaking which is in paper-pencil format. (Principles of Public Speaking is not offered at Georgia State University.*) The tests are 2 hours in length and immediate scoring is available.
