Non-Traditional Credit Options

The following DANTES tests are recognized by John Brown University for credit toward the Degree Completion Program's elective and general education degree requirements for Business Administration (online), Liberal Arts (online) and Organizational Management majors. Students who are currently in the Early Childhood Education (EDC) program may not use these exams for credit.

Enrolled students should receive the Associate Registrar's approval to apply credit from these tests to their own graduation requirements PRIOR to taking the test via a signed Approval to Transfer Form. Tests which duplicate or overlap previous college credit will not be approved.

The test study sheets are only available in .pdf formats.

Additional information about DANTES tests, including how to purchase practice tests, is available from the test publisher at www.getcollegecredit.com.
