The Developmental Education program at Daytona State helps students develop the skills essential for academic success. The curriculum emphasizes reading, communicating through writing, basic mathematical concepts, and effective life and study skills. Developmental Education consists of non-college credit courses in reading, writing and mathematics. We also offer three college-credit courses to assist students with their academic needs: Intermediate Algebra, Critical Reading Techniques and English Grammar. The college-credit courses can be used toward the A.A. degree.
