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 to enrich your life and reach your goals. 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, our latest high marks come from three years running in the Top 10 Best Online Bachelor’s Programs in the nation in rankings by U. S. News & World Report, coming in this year at No. 2. I’m proud to say that Daytona State earned these high rankings due to top-notch faculty, smart technology and focused student engagement.
Our students – who number about 28,000 a year – can take advantage of a range of student services and activities that we offer, including national championship athletic teams, an award-winning student newspaper, an active student government association and more than 25 clubs and organizations to enhance the college experience. On our campuses you also will find the internationally recognized Southeast Museum of Photography, a state-of-the-art fitness and aquatic facility and two theaters which host theatrical, musical and dance productions throughout the year.
Let us know if we can help you join in the Daytona State College experience. I applaud each and every one of our students, from whatever point they are in life, for making the smart choice and taking the next step toward their goals.
Dr. Thomas LoBasso
