Daytona State College, a comprehensive public college, provides access to a range of flexible programs from community enrichment to the baccalaureate degree, emphasizing student success, embracing excellence and diversity, as well as fostering innovation to enhance teaching and learning.
Over the past 50-plus years, Daytona State College has evolved from a small campus into an academically superior multi-campus institution providing educational and cultural programs for the citizens of Volusia and Flagler counties. It began in 1957 when the Florida Legislature authorized Daytona Beach Junior College as one of the state's first comprehensive colleges. The college was divided into three divisions: college credit, adult education and the Mary Karl Vocational School. Although the three divisions were administered by one president, they essentially functioned as separate entities under the Volusia County School System. Volusia County Community College, also a separate entity under the school system, merged with DBJC in 1965. The 1968 Legislature combined the divisions into a single administrative unit under a District Board of Trustees independent of the county school system. In 1971, the official name of the college was changed from Daytona Beach Junior College to Daytona Beach Community College. In 2008, the District Board of Trustees and the state of Florida approved the college's request for yet another name change - Daytona State College. This was done to reflect the institutionï¿½s transition to a four-year institution offering workforce baccalaureate degrees. Daytona State's status as a four-year college began in 2006, when it offered its first bachelor's degree - the Bachelor of Applied Science in Supervision and Management. In spring 2009, the college began offering Bachelor of Science in Education degrees and, in fall 2010, the Bachelor of Science in Engineering Technology. The college launched its two newest bachelorï¿½s degrees - Nursing and Information Technology - in January 2014. Additional baccalaureate-level programs and articulation agreements are being planned for future implementation to support the regionï¿½s economic development and workforce needs. Over the years, the college has fostered a tradition of excellence in academics and service to a growing community. A leader in the area's workforce and economic development initiatives, Daytona State is continually developing new means to deliver educational services to the community. The college now serves nearly 30,000 students annually. Daytona State College is accredited by the Southern Association of Colleges and Schools Commission on Colleges to award associate and bachelorï¿½s degrees.
