1. When can I start to register for the next semester?
The Academic Calendar lists the dates of registration (see Open and/or Advanced Registration), simply select the term and year you want to view. The calendar can always be accessed on the front of our homepage (www.DaytonaState.edu). Registration for Spring is the first Monday in November and registration for Summer and Fall starts on the first Monday in April. Registration for the subsessions can be done at any time through the Add/Drop period for each subsession. To view the schedule of classes that will be offered for your current major: login to your My.DaytonaState.edu account and select "My Academics", then select "Enrollment Add Classes" and click the search button under "My Requirements."
2. Do I need to see an Advisor before enrolling into classes?
Yes, the college requires that you meet with an Academic Advisor prior to registration. Students in Associate of Science and certificate programs should meet with faculty in their respective academic departments because the course selection is very specific. Each academic program is described in the college catalog with all course requirements indicated as well as the prerequisites. Each course is not necessarily offered every semester, so students are encouraged to meet with an Academic Advisor who can help plan course selections.
3. How do I Search for Courses?
If you're a current student, you would login to your My.DaytonaState.edu account and select "My Academics", then select "Enrollment Add Classes" and click the search button under "My Requirements" to view availability. If you are not currently admitted to the college, you can click "Course Search" from our main homepage (under the QuickLinks menu). Select the term you'd like to search. You can then search by specific course subject, campus, or by subsession (example: Fall-A, 1st seven weeks). To view online courses only, select Online from the "Campus" dropdown menu and then click Search.
4. How do I enroll into classes through the web?
Students will go to their My.DaytonaState.edu account. Enter your Username and Password (first time users will enter the Default Password as indicated on the login screen). Once logged in, select My Academics. From there, select Enrollment, and click on Enrollment Add Classes. Then, select the My Requirements button and click Search. For further detailed instructions and screenshots, click here. NOTE: Dual Enrollment High School Students and DSC Adult Education High School Students do not have access to enroll into classes online and must visit the Falcon Center (Registration Office) at the nearest campus.
5. How do I withdraw from a class?
Students can withdraw from a class up to the Withdraw Deadline indicated in the academic calendar. Dropping a class after the drop/add period has ended is considered a Withdrawal. Students will not be eligible for a tuition refund and must still pay any outstanding balances owed to the college. Financial Aid recipients are strongly advised to contact the Financial Aid Office to be aware of any consequences before withdrawing from a course. To withdraw from one or all courses, go to the MyDaytonaState portal, enter your Username and Password. After you have logged in, select "My Academics" from the navigation bar that goes across the top. Then, select "Enrollment Drop Classes." Mark the checkbox next to each class you wish to withdraw. Now, select the green button labeled "Drop Selected Classes." Then click "Finish Dropping" and review the status message to ensure the withdraw was successful.
6. What is the difference between dropping and withdrawing?
When you "drop" a class within the Add/Drop period, you are entitled to a refund and neither a grade nor the class shows up on your transcript. When you "withdraw" from a class (the deadlines are published on the academic calendar), you will lose the money you paid for the class, and the class will appear on your transcript with the grade of "W". A withdraw may impact how much you pay for classes in the future and can affect your current/future financial aid awards. Click here for further information.
7. What do I do if the class I want is closed?
Once the class is filled, no additional students can be added. Students can check back periodically to see if someone has chosen to drop the class or to see if another section has been added.
8. How long do I have to pay for classes? Do you have online classes? Is there a cost
Each time you enroll into a class you need to view your account balance and payment deadline under the "My Finances" tab through your My.DaytonaState.edu account (click here for more detailed instructions). The college does not mail a tuition bill. In most cases students have 10 days to pay or defer the bill, but this collapses to one day as the start date of classes gets closer. The college offers many classes online. Over 25% of students are taking at least one online class, with many other classes being offered on a 50/50 basis. There is an extra cost per-credit-hour for 100% online classes, see Distance Learning Course Fee.
9. Where can I go for help with registration?
Students can receive registration assistance in the Falcon Center on any campus location.
11. How many hours are considered full time?
The college reports enrollment on a semester basis with 12 credits or more being Full-Time; 9-11 credits being Three-Quarter-time; 6-8 credits is Half-Time; and less than 6 credits is Less-Than-half-time.
12. What is the maximum # of hours I can take each semester?
Students are allowed to take 18 credits in full semester courses, and 9 credits in any one subsession (ex. Spring-A, Spring-B). In special cases students with a 3.0 or higher grade point average may request special permission from the Director of Academic Advising to take additional credits.
13. How do I login and access an online class?
Students can access their online classes through their My.DaytonaState.edu account on the class Start Date that's indicated on a student's Class Schedule. Once logged in to the MyDaytonaState portal, click "Falcon Online Class Access" towards the very top of the web browser to access the online classroom known as FalconOnline.
14. How do I access MyDaytonaState student portal account?
For both Current and Former students, visit My.DaytonaState.edu. Then enter your Username which is your first name_last name (example: john_smith). If this is your first time logging in, then for your Password, enter the Default Password as indicated towards the bottom of the login screen (the letters "Dsc" + your birthdate in MMDDYY format + the last FIVE digits of your social security number = example: Dsc01018056789). NOTE: Former students will not have access to enrollment therefore if you'd like to return to take classes here, you will need to reapply back to the college by resubmitting an Admissions Application to the Admissions Office.
15. Where do I go to print my Class Schedule?
To print a copy of your Class Schedule, go to the MyDaytonaState portal, enter your Username and Password. After you have logged in, click on "My Academics" from the menu bar. Select "My Classes." Then click "My Class Schedule." Use the filter options at the top of your schedule to display specific information (ex. "show enrolled classes"). You can also change the "Select Display Option" that's also at the top to view your class schedule in Weekly Calendar View.
16. Can I audit a class?
Students are allowed to audit a class (no grade or credit is given) to obtain a skill or knowledge that will not be used for graduation purposes. The cost is the same as when the course is taken for credit. Students cannot audit a developmental class. Many times students who have been out of school for a long time will audit a class previously taken to refresh their knowledge. Students need the instructor's permission to audit a class, forms are available in the Falcon Center / Question&Answer Center on every campus location and online.
17. What is the census date for financial aid mean?
The census date typically marks the end of the add/drop period for the semester. This is the date we take a "snapshot" of all students' enrollment to establish the "official enrollment" for reporting purposes and financial aid eligibility. Classes added to your schedule after this date cannot be calculated into your financial aid eligibility..
