Update to DSC Students – Friday, April 3, 2020
Dear Daytona State College Students,
As we continue to monitor the pandemic situation, we receive new guidance daily from local, state and national health and emergency management officials. This past Wednesday, Governor Ron DeSantis issued Executive Order 20-91, which asks citizens to stay at home to help limit the spread of COVID-19. Since we made the transition to remote instruction two weeks ago, we’re already well positioned to support your online learning and academic pursuits.
Overall, the feedback has been positive regarding the online transition and we will continue to refine and adapt our processes as we move forward. Please continue to reach out to your instructors and don’t forget that we are offering top-notch student resources in online formats. This includes Library Services, Academic Support Services, the Writing Center, tutoring, and Career Services. We’re here to help you succeed, so be sure to take advantage of these services.
Summer and Fall advance registration began earlier this week, and registration for everyone opens Monday, April 6. As a reminder, summer classes will be online with the possibility of face-to-face classes added back in later in the summer; however that all depends on the guidance and recommendations at that time.
We’re also inviting all “Class of 2020” graduates to participate in the May 2021 ceremony since the May 11 event has been canceled. We are exploring other options to recognize your hard work and academic achievements, so stay tuned for updates in your student email and online at www.DaytonaState.edu/COVID-19.
Please continue to practice social distancing, stay at home whenever possible, and
follow the recommendations from the Florida Department of Health and CDC. Stay healthy
and finish this semester strong!
Amy Locklear, Ph.D.
