Our Admissions Requirements

Daytona College admits students without regard to race, age, disability, creed, sexual orientation, gender, marital status, religion, 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:


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.


An applicant must be beyond the compulsory age of attendance at a secondary institution in order to be admitted to Daytona College.


Applicants enrolling in the distance education programs must complete an online orientation and complete an assessment with a qualifying score of 80%.


Certain programs, such as the Associates of Science Nursing Degree, have additional admissions requirements. Please refer to the College Catalog for more information.

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 from 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. Students enrolling in the Nursing programs must have the equivalent of a B (3.0) 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 five years may be granted at the discretion of the Director of Education. 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.
