Earn Credit Without a Degree

You can take courses even if you don't intend to earn a degree or certificate from Daytona State College. As a non-degree seeking student, you can enroll in courses to upgrade career skills, takes courses for personal enrichment, or for the purpose of transferring to another institution. Non-degree seeking students must meet course placement and prerequisite requirements for any course they take.

You earn college credit for courses that you take as a non-degree seeking student. If you do not want to earn credit, you can request permission to audit a course. All tuition and fees still apply.
