Will DSST Exams Affect My Grade Point Average?

Updated: Feb 20


Failing an exam won't affect your GPA because these tests work independently from official classes.

DSST Exams: Grade Point Average


Many students are concerned about how DSST exams impact their grade point average (GPA).


 

GPA Impact


The grades from DSST exams are not averaged in with the rest of your grades.


This is one of the best features of DSST exams!


Whether you pass or fail, it won't affect your GPA because these tests work independently from official classes.


 

Scoring and Retakes


DSST exams are scored as Pass or Fail.


If you fail an exam, you can retake it after 30 days.


So, there's no need to worry about your score affecting your GPA.


 

Focus on Passing


Instead of focusing on your GPA, concentrate on passing the exam.


With some effort and studying, you can achieve that goal!
