Daytona State College offers 11 baccalaureate degree programs: the Bachelor of Applied Science (BAS) in Supervision and Management program, the Bachelor of Science in Engineering Technology, the Bachelor of Science in Information Technology, the Bachelor of Science in Nursing and seven (7) Bachelor of Science in Education programs. These programs are an excellent option for students looking to remain in our local communities and earn an affordable bachelor’s degree. Please see the Excess Hours Advisory Statement below from the Division of Florida Colleges.

Bachelor of Science in Education Programs (BSED)

The Bachelor of Science in Education degree programs include Elementary Education, Exceptional Student Education (ESE), Secondary Math Education, Secondary Biology Education, Secondary Physics Education, Secondary Chemistry Education and Secondary Earth/Space Science Education. Elementary Education and Exceptional Education graduates also receive a full Reading and ESOL Endorsement.

The courses are designed in a half-and-half model, with nearly all courses being offered in a seven-week mode and requiring a minimum of 15 hours of field experience in a public Volusia or Flagler County school. The senior internship is a full semester (16 weeks) and is the pre-service teacher’s culminating learning experience.

Bachelor of Science in Nursing (BSN)

The registered nursing to Bachelor of Science in nursing (RN-BSN) program was developed for the new or working nurse interested in career advancement. The program offers a flexible schedule for the working adult allowing students to take classes full or part time. It is designed for nurses whose highest academic credential is a diploma or associate degree in nursing and possess a registered nursing license in Florida. It provides a seamless transition from the associate degree to the baccalaureate degree and prepares graduates for a broader scope of nursing practice.

Bachelor of Applied Science in Supervision and Management Program (BAS)

The Bachelor of Applied Science in Supervision and Management degree program is designed to provide the associate degree students with the management tools and skills needed to move to the next level in their careers.

BAS courses are offered in many formats. Students can take our classes online, face-to-face, or half and half. To meet the needs of the working professional, classes are available in evenings and on weekends.

Bachelor of Science in Engineering Technology (BSET)

The Bachelor of Science in Engineering Technology prepares individuals who have completed an AA or AS degree with some education in specific technical areas for supervisory and management roles and positions. The degree focuses primarily on analyzing, applying, implementing and improving existing technologies, and is aimed at preparing graduates for the practice of engineering in product improvement, manufacturing, construction and engineering operational functions.

Bachelor of Science Information Technology (BSIT)

The Bachelor of Science Information Technology prepares individuals who have completed an AA or AS degree with some education to function within the field of Information Technology. Students will receive coursework to develop proficiency in areas of information management, programming, networking, security and information assurance, system administration and maintenance, and web systems.

Excess Hours Advisory Statement

This Division of Florida Colleges advisory statement for incoming students is intended to ensure that all students within The Florida College System understand the importance and potential consequences of their course selections.

Section 1009.286, Florida Statutes, establishes an “excess hour” surcharge for students seeking baccalaureate degrees at state universities. It is critical that students, including those entering Florida College System Institutions, are aware of the potential for additional course fees. For the 2012-13 academic year and thereafter, “excess hours” are defined as hours that go beyond 110% of the hours required for a baccalaureate degree program. For example, if the length of the program is 120 credit hours, the student may be subject to an excess hour surcharge for any credits attempted beyond 132 credit hours (110% X 120).

All students whose educational plan may include earning a bachelor’s degree should make every effort to enroll in and successfully complete those courses that are required for their intended major on their first attempt. Florida College System students intending to transfer to state universities should identify a major or “transfer program” early and, by the time the student earns 30 semester hours of college credit, be advised of admission requirements for that program, including the approved common prerequisites. Course withdrawals and/or repeats, as well as enrollment in courses nonessential to the intended major, may contribute to a potential excess hours surcharge.
