Admissions

The Daytona College admissions process is designed to be informative, interactive, and not intimidating.  We realize this process is difficult, and we’re here to help you through the process as best we can.  So if you’re confused, not understanding, or just feeling a little overwhelmed, reach out to us.  Let one of our admissions representatives help you navigate the process so that you may move quickly from being a Daytona College Prospect to a Daytona College Student!

Our Admissions Requirements are:

Daytona College admits students of any race, without regard to age, handicap, creed, sex, national or ethnic origin, to all of the rights, privileges, programs, and activities generally accorded our students. We do not discriminate in the administration of our educational policies, admission policies, tuition payment programs, or any other college administered programs. The minimum requirements for acceptance to our college are:

  1.  Evidence   of   one   of   the   following:   high   school graduation, GED equivalent, home-study certificate or transcript from a home-study program that is equivalent to  high school level and is recognized by the student’s home  state, higher education credential earned, such as AS,  AA,  BA,  BS,  MBA,  PhD.  An  applicant  to  any program who has not yet obtained a GED or who cannot provide  proof  of  graduation  may  obtain  GED  testing information  from  the   Admissions  Department. The applicant is encouraged to work with the Admissions Department until the GED is satisfactorily completed. At  that time, the applicant may then continue with the enrollment process.
  2. An applicant must be beyond the compulsory age of attendance at a secondary institution in order to be admitted to Daytona College.
  3. Applicants enrolling in the distance education programs must complete an online orientation and complete an assessment with a qualifying score of 70%.

Admissions Procedures

Admissions procedures for Daytona College include a personal interview with  an authorized representative of the college, a visit to the college and/or the  Daytona College Learning Management System, completion of all required forms including the enrollment agreement, and payment of the application fee.

The  college  will  determine  an  applicant’s  eligibility  on  the  basis  of educational  background,  personal  interview,  personal  references,  and prior work experience.

A person may enroll at the College or by calling the online admissions department at: 1-877-308-9849. Admissions activity is conducted at 425 S. Nova Road, Ormond Beach, Florida or online programs offered via distance education .

 Late Admissions

Students may be eligible for entrance into new group training classes for a period of one-week following the start of class at the discretion of the College Director.

Credit for Previous Training

Students never having attended Daytona College must present an official transcript of record to be evaluated and considered for awarding of credit towards   completion  of  all  programs.

The  grade  recorded  on  the transcript must be the equivalent of a C (2.0) or above. For those students enrolling  into  one  of  our  massage  therapy  programs  in  an  effort  to complete endorsement requirements as set forth by the Florida Statutes and Administrative Codes, this facility has been authorized to review the party’s previous education information packet, verify that the information  provided  is  in  accordance  with  the  statutes  and  rules, document   and   present   all   previous   coursework   that   fulfills   the requirements,   and   permit   the   student   to   complete   any   required coursework remaining.   The remaining coursework, upon completion, shall be documented and presented to the Department for further review and  acceptance.   Credits earned in another approved Massage Therapy program are awarded on a one-to-one basis.  Credits not received within the  past  two  years  may  be  granted  at  the  discretion  of  the  College Director. Re-entry students  will be awarded credit for previous training for successfully completed portions of the student’s program, which must be documented by grade and attendance records.

A minimum of twenty-five percent (25%) of the credits required for a diploma or degree must be earned at Daytona College.

Transfer of Credits

Daytona College’s programs are designed with a single terminal objective – preparation for entry-level employment in the student’s chosen field.  A student who desires to further his/her education after completing training at Daytona College is advised that acceptance of transfer credits/hours is at the discretion of the receiving institution.

Prospective students are advised to obtain information from all institutions they expect to attend in order to understand each institution’s credit acceptance policies.  It is the student’s responsibility to confirm whether or not credits/hours will be accepted by another school of the student’s choice.

Acceptance of Credits for Previous Training

Students never having attended Daytona College must present an official transcript of record to be evaluated and considered for awarding of credit towards completion of all programs.  The grade recorded on the transcript must be the equivalent of a C (2.0) or above.  Credits not received within the past two years may be granted at the discretion of the College Director or Online Director.

A minimum of twenty-five (25%) of the credits required for a diploma or degree must be earned at Daytona College.

This list includes contact information for all 50 states and the District of Columbia and should not be construed as informative of what agencies regulate the Institution or in what states the Institution is licensed or required to be licensed.
