“Going to Daytona State was not only a
great experience for me, it also helped me save enough money to transfer to a four-year university.” “Attending Daytona State College allowed me to complete my first two years of college without any debt, which made it possible for me to afford to transfer to a four-year university. I was able to complete and transfer 52 credits from DSC with zero out-of-pocket expense by taking advantage of one year of dual enrollment while I was still in high school and another year funded by a Pell Grant. Dual enrollment didn’t just save me money, it also allowed me to get a taste of the college experience while enjoying smaller class sizes and more accessible and individual attention from my professors.” 17 31

YOUR SUCCESS MATTERS!
“I had to rethink my career path.
knowing absolutely nothing
I started the program and left
with a job
two weeks before I finished.”
“I wasn’t happy with what I was doing and needed to rethink my career path. My mom suggested Daytona State’s Workforce programs, so I sat down and listed the things I liked to do, and that helped me decide on going into the welding program. The program only took me an academic year to complete, and I had a great job lined up two weeks before my classes ended. The program had me completely confident and prepared for my job, and my employer was astonished with the work I was able to do from my first day on.”

“Daytona State is helping me
become a and making me want to
go further in life.”
“As a student athlete at Daytona State, I have a lot of support and opportunities both on and off the field. I’ve had professors spend an hour or so working with me before class. Everyone here is so helpful. There’s also the Academic Support Center, where we do a lot of our work on our own and with tutors who can help us. Also, being a student athlete here makes you more disciplined and teaches you to manage your time between student life, campus life and your life as an athlete. My goals are to continue playing baseball at a four-year school, get a degree in accounting and eventually become a CPA. Daytona State is helping me get there.”
