DAYTONA BEACH, Fla. (Sept. 21, 2015) – Community College Week, one of the nation's leading publications focusing on higher education institutions that offer two-year associate Daytona State among Community College Week’s top 100degrees, has again named Daytona State College among its list of Top 100 Associate Degree Producers.

Among some 5,000 public and private two- and four-year institutions, DSC ranked 52nd nationally in awarding the two-year associate degree. In addition, the college ranked 38th in the awarding of the Associate Degree in Nursing (ADN), 26th in liberal arts and science degree awards, and 90th in the awarding of one-year college and vocational credit certificates.

"These rankings are a reflection of the quality of our faculty and support staff, who serve our students with dedication, commitment and a focus on excellence," said DSC President Tom LoBasso. "The ultimate measure of our institutional effectiveness rests in student success and outcomes. Daytona State is on a path of continuous improvement and these rankings affirm our efforts."

The rankings are based on an analysis of data collected by the National Center for Education Statistics for the 2013-2014 academic year, when the college awarded 2,342 associate degrees in all disciplines, including 1,640 associate of arts university transfer degrees, 226 ADNs and 982 one-year certificates.
