The college will continue to require the receipt of all prior college transcripts, even if no credits are to be awarded in transfer. For more information refer to the Academic Second Chance Policy. 2) Courses that were taken at an upper (junior, senior etc.) level for which there is no comparable Daytona State College course.

What if I disagree with how a course was evaluated?
If you feel that a course has not been evaluated correctly, you may challenge the evaluation of the course by providing a course syllabus or more in-depth course materials to the appropriate department chairperson for their review and recommendation. The department chairperson will determine if the course is applicable to the program/degree and advise the Records Department in writing regarding the course credit.
