Both Brookdale students and individuals attending other schools may earn credit through DSST (formerly known as Dantes) testing at Brookdale’s main campus. To schedule an appointment to take the DSST, please email testing at

DSST fees are $80.00 payable by credit card only, which will be paid when you start the test. Brookdale’s Testing Center charge a $30.00 proctoring fee. This fee is payable by credit card, cash, check or money order payable to BCC Testing.  As of February 1, 2018 DSST’s fee will increase to $85.

Preparation materials are available through Brookdale’s College Bookstore or through DSST’s website.

Candidates with disabilities as prescribed by the ADA who require special accommodations should contact Brookdale’s Testing Center at 732-224-2584 prior to taking the test. You will be asked to submit documentation of your disability and your request for special accommodations. We will then forward your documentation along with your request for testing accommodations to Prometric for approval. Please submit your request as far in advance of your requested test date as possible so that we may have the opportunity to make the necessary accommodations. Only test takers with document disabilities are eligible for special accommodations.

Testing candidates attending colleges other than Brookdale should check with their school for course, credit and score equivalencies.
