ACE / DANTES Examination Policy


Effective Date Mar 29, 2018

Credit is only considered for Military Courses when listed on an official Joint Services Transcript or for Military Training Credit listed on an official Coast Guard Institute transcript. Credit is awarded based on ACE recommendation and Florida Tech transfer credit policy.

Credit is considered for DANTES Subject Standardized Tests (DSST) and CLEP subject area examinations through DANTES listed on an official DANTES transcript. Credit is awarded based on ACE recommendation and Florida Tech transfer credit policy.

Florida Tech expects students to take any DANTES examinations before enrollment. Although a student may take these examinations while enrolled at Florida Tech, they may do so only with the permission of their major department and college dean. Credit earned from DANTES is excluded from the three-course limit that applies to the study at another institution policy. Students must take DANTES examinations before their last term of enrollment. Contact the registrar’s office (Florida Tech Online students contact their Florida Tech academic department) for further information.
