The Blue-Gold Connection


The Blue-Gold Connection is a program Embry-Riddle Aeronautical University (ERAU) offers to students attending Daytona State College.  This program allows students to complete a majority of their general education requirements at Daytona State College. Blue-Gold students will now have the option of obtaining an AA degree or completing a personalized course transfer guide.

If the student chooses the personalized course transfer guide, he will need to complete at least 30 credit hours from the guide to qualify for the Blue-Gold scholarship.  Personalized course transfer guides will be established by meeting with an ERAU advisor/admission representative.

Students who transfer with at least a 2.5 CGPA, will qualify for the Blue-Gold Scholarship of $2,000 which is renewable each year if a 3.0 CGPA is maintained at Embry-Riddle.

If the Blue-Gold student matriculates within 2 years, he/she will remain under the academic guidelines of the catalog in existence at the time the course transfer guide was developed. If circumstances prevent the student from completing the courses within the 2 year period, the student can petition for an extra year. However, if the student does not complete the courses within this 3 year time frame, the student would then fall under the catalog in existence at the time he/she matriculates.
