A decade of no increases in tuition

DAYTONA BEACH, FLA. (June 18, 2020) – Daytona State College has announced its tuition for the 2020-21 academic year will not increase, holding steady at its current rate. The College District Board of Trustees approved the recommendation at its June 18 meeting, and it marks the 10th year in a row the College has not raised tuition for its students.

 “Providing our students and community with affordable education has always been one of the pillars of Daytona State College,” said Dr. Tom LoBasso, DSC President. “We have been able to freeze the cost of tuition for a decade now, and even lowered it by two percent in 2015, because everyone should have access to life-changing educational opportunities. That’s important now more than ever.”

 The tuition freeze applies to all Daytona State bachelor, associate, career and technical certificate programs, as well as adult education.

 Tuition and fees for baccalaureate degree programs remains at $120.32 per credit hour for in-state and $623.29 for out-of-state students. The tuition and fees for in-state ($102.38) and out-of-state ($398.65) is also holding for AA and AS programs, and tuition for certificate programs remains at $82.24 per semester hour for in-state students and $328.96 for out-of-state.

 Daytona State’s tuition remains well below the national average and the U.S. Department of Education ranks DSC among the most affordable public four-year institutions in the country. A Florida resident can expect to pay approximately half the cost for an associate level or a bachelor’s degree at DSC compared to the cost at a Florida public university.

 The College offers more than 100 degrees or certificates and enrollment for the Summer B and Fall terms is now open.
