New Directions

The New Directions program assists eligible students who are enrolled in either Associate of Science (AS) or Certificate degree programs.

The two-year AS degree prepares students for careers which require specialized college level training. The programs are tailored for immediate entry into business, health, engineering technology, nursing, computer science, and technical and visual arts careers. Certificate programs prepare students for jobs that require a year or less of training. Most certificate programs are offered for vocational credit, however, some provide credit toward an AS degree. For further information contact Nancy DeStefano at (386) 506-3434 or email: destefn@DaytonaState.edu.
