Daytona State College Reviews
I attended DSC as part of the duel enrollment program my high school offered. I was enrolled full time for 2 semesters, and part time for 3. I was able to graduate high school with an AA degree (60 credits). All my classes counted towards my bachelor's degree when I transferred to a Florida university post graduation. I think DSC it the best educational establishment in the Daytona area, however there aren't many options here anyway. Professors generally cared about student outcomes however the quality of instruction could be very mixed. Compared to a typical university the class sizes at DSC are small which is a definite plus. My anatomy and physiology class had 18 students, compared with the 100+ class size for a similar course at a university. Tuition at DSC for a full semester is about $3,000, about half the price of public university tuition. DSC should certainly be considered for people in the area that want to go to a university but don't have the money or the high school performance needed to go right away. DSC also offers many vocational/skill based job training programs for much cheaper than schools like Kaiser. DSC probably has better instruction anyway. Also, don't buy books from the bookstore, they're cheaper online or from a classmate
I did all classes online and it was a great experience. The teachers were always available and supportive.
The online software was easy to use and some of the professors were okay, but, if I were doing it again, I'd go somewhere else. The reputation is not great and some of the students/professors were downright poor. I often had to do others work in the cohort setting as students would sometimes go awol, or just produce subpar work. All in all, you can get your degree for cheap, but get your Masters afterwards.
