All DSC Assessment Services offices are currently closed to student testers. Please see below for testing information and updates.
If you are a Pearson Vue tester, testing will reopen on May 11, 2020 on a limited basis on the Daytona Beach Campus Only. If your test can be scheduled in sections (GK, FTCE, GED, Cosmetology, etc.), we strongly recommend trying to schedule 1 section at a time. Availability is extremely limited for large blocks of time, testers have more availability if they schedule their test in sections. Please check your registration for information about campus requirements prior to testing.
If you are a new dual enrollment student, please keep checking the dual enrollment website for any updates. Again, thank you for your patience and understanding.

TEAS - Nursing students, please see the announcement below from the Nursing Department regarding the TEAS testing for the Nursing May Application Window and visit the Nursing website for detailed information -
- Nursing program applications will be accepted during the normal application window
May 1 – May 31, 2020. Due to the College being closed potential applicants will be
allowed to send in the nursing program application either postal mail or email (see
nursing department website for address and email). Students will not be required
to have an Advisor signature, and for those that have not taken the TEAS Exam, they
will be allowed to submit. Submitting the nursing application without the TEAS is
only conditional and temporary. Once the College resumes normal business operations
those applicants will be required to show proof of passing scores with a deadline
of August 26, 2020. This is a temporary solution for submitting the nursing application
and the deadline will not be extended beyond May 31, 2020.
