Daytona State will accept credits from all regionally accredited colleges. This should be done prior to starting classes with the student being notified by email that the transcript evaluation has been completed. Students are also allowed to "transfer back" credits from another college to complete graduation requirements. Credit for courses taken at a non-accredited college can be accepted in certain circumstances with the appropriate documentation. At least 25% of a program must be completed at Daytona State.
