Student Achievement

At Daytona State College, nothing is more important than the success of our students. The college is dedicated to removing obstacles, inspiring hope and confidence, and making the personal connections that convince our students they belong in college. Success means achievement in the classroom, in the workplace, and in life. 

The college keeps students and their unique characteristics in mind when identifying and evaluating goals and outcomes for student achievement, which is why the outcomes of completion/graduation rates, retention rates, placement rates, licensure exam pass rates, and course success rates are integral components of helping the college ensure students are achieving and succeeding.
 

Completion/Graduation Rate

Completion is a driver for helping students succeed and is central to the DSC mission statement. The college is using the new IPEDS Outcome Measure metric as the source for this outcome. This metric includes full- and part-time students, first time in college (FTIC) students, and transfer students, which more fully represents the wide range of students served at the college. This outcome uses the 8-year award rate.
