2  years  of  college.    About  70  percent  of  Navy examinees successfully pass the CLEP tests.  This is a strong motivator for career personnel.  Personnel who already  possess  credit  for  service  schools  and  work experience may earn an associate degree more quickly by successfully completing CLEP tests.  CLEP subject examinations  are  also  available.    They  measure knowledge of basic concepts, principles, relationships, and applications involved in college courses with the corresponding title. DANTES Subject Standardized Tests DANTES  Subject  Standardized  Tests   (DSSTs) include a series of examinations in academic subject matter  areas  not  usually  covered  under  CLEP.    The D S S T    p r o g r a m    i n c l u d e s    a p p r o x i m a t e l y    3 6 undergraduate-level college subjects.  Similar to final examinations,  DSSTs  demand  a  comprehensive knowledge  of  the  subject.    The  examinations  are multiple-choice  and,  unlike  other  examinations,  are not timed.  Personnel may earn 3 semester hours of credit  for  each  DSST,  as  recommended  by  the American Council on Education (ACE).  DSSTs are just  another  source  from  which  Navy  personnel  can earn college credit. Regents College Examination Program Regents  College  Examinations,  formerly  the American  College  Testing  Proficiency  Examination Program (ACT/PEP), are used to meet specific college degree requirements of the Regents College degrees and are accepted by many other colleges.  The Regents College Examinations (RCEs) were developed by the University of the State of New York.  The RCEs are available to all active-duty military personnel.  Over 35 separate RCEs are available in the areas of art and sciences,  business,  education,  and  nursing.  Military members  may  earn  academic  credit  from  many colleges and universities for successfully completing these tests.
