DSST Exams

Given the rapid increase in COVID-19 cases in the counties we serve, individuals will be required to wear face masks indoors at all NCC buildings effective August 30, 2021, until further notice.

Some DSST exams can be taken remotely by service members. To learn more, visit the DSST home page. PLEASE NOTE: DSST remote exams are not associated with or proctored by the NCC Mack Library Testing Center.
