In Ninth Straight Year, Daytona State College Remains Among the Nation’s Best in 2021
U.S. News & World Report Rankings for Top Online Bachelor’s Programs
DSC’s ranking places the institution as the top State College in Florida
DAYTONA BEACH, FLA. (January 26, 2021) – Daytona State College has once again been recognized in U.S. News & World Report’s annual rankings for Best Online Bachelor’s Degree Programs. DSC is the highest ranked school among Florida’s 28 state colleges, and the only one in U.S. News & World Report’s top-50 that is not a university.
The new rankings were announced Tuesday, January 26, and marks the ninth consecutive year the College has earned a spot among the nation’s best. In addition to its overall ranking, Daytona State was also ranked in Best Online Bachelor’s Programs for Veterans and the online business degree program as well.
“The annual rankings by U.S. News & World Report are one of the highest standards by which colleges and universities are measured,” said Dr. Tom LoBasso, DSC President. “The fact that Daytona State continues to achieve such high marks, year after year, is a reflection of the hard work put in by our faculty and staff, and their commitment to providing education at the highest level.”
Schools are ranked according to their performance across a set of widely accepted indicators of excellence that include four general categories: engagement, services and technologies, faculty credentials and training, and expert opinion. The expert opinion category surveys high-ranking academic officials to help account for intangible factors affecting program quality that are not captured by statistics alone.
Daytona State College began offering bachelor’s degrees in 2006 with the Bachelor’s in Applied Science in Supervision and Management. Since then, the College has added bachelor’s programs in Engineering Technology, Information Technology, Elementary Education, Secondary Education (with specializations), Nursing and Accounting, bringing the total number to 12. The BAS in Supervision and Management, BSET, BSIT, and BS in Nursing can be completed entirely online.
