The Testing Center at DSU is comprised of three (3) separate testing operations: a Student Testing Center, a Prometric Center, and a Professional Testing Center. The Student Testing Center is for DSU students who need to take an exam for one of their classes. The Prometric Center is a partnership between Prometric and DSU where many different certification exams can be taken. The Professional Testing Center can be used by both students and professionals for various paid tests: placement exams, credit-by-examination tests, and proctored exams for other colleges and universities.


DSU Testing Services offers exams from professional vendors and organizations; the most popular tests are listed below.  Additional tests and information may be found at the Testing Services Website.
