Welcome to Daytona State College – where learning for life is our way of life.
Whether you're a student, a parent, a supporter or someone interested in exploring our institution, you'll find remarkable opportunities at DSC to enrich lives and open doors. We offer pathways to exciting careers, further education, in-demand skills training and personal enrichment.
Daytona State has distinguished itself with high-quality academic programs, outstanding faculty dedicated to teaching, and small class sizes that ensure our students get the attention and support to help them succeed.
In fact, I'm proud to say that Daytona State earned a fourth year of high marks from U. S. News & World Report due to top-notch faculty, smart technology and focused student engagement. We rank among the nation's Top 10 Best Online Bachelor's Programs, and earned a similar placement for Best Online Bachelor's Programs for Veterans. That goes along with placing among the Top 100 Associate Degree Producers in America and, in Florida, earning the top spot for undergraduate elementary-education bachelor's programs.
Our students, who number about 28,000 a year, can expand their college experience with many student services and activities, including:
- championship athletic teams,
- an award-winning student newspaper and literary magazine,
- an active Student Government Association and
- more than 25 clubs and organizations.
On our campuses you'll also find the internationally recognized Southeast Museum of Photography, a state-of-the-art fitness and aquatic facility and two theaters that host theatrical, musical and dance productions throughout the year.
Let us know if we can help you join in the Daytona State College experience from where ever you are in life. I applaud you and each of our students for making the smart choice and taking the next step toward your goals.
Thomas LoBasso, Ed.D.
