Daytona State College and Bethune-Cookman University signed an agreement March 1 providing admissions, transfer credit and scholarship support for DSC students pursuing an advanced degree in criminal justice at B-CU.
The agreement is effective immediately.
“Our partnership with Bethune-Cookman University greatly streamlines the process for students looking to continue their education in criminal justice,” said Tom LoBasso, president of Daytona State College.
DSC students who have earned an associate of arts degree will be eligible to receive full credit for general education requirements at B-CU and are eligible for up to 60 transferable credits.
DSC students who have earned an associate of science degree in criminal justice and who are part of DSC’s Law Enforcement Academy plan are eligible to receive up to 42 transfer credits, including at least 15 general education classes. Those not part of the Law Enforcement Academy plan may receive up to 54 credits, including at least 15 general education classes.
“Daytona State has an incredible reputation for preparing its students to continue their education and enter the workforce,” said Lawrence M. Drake, interim president of Bethune-Cookman University. “We share a mission to serve our communities and look forward to helping students achieve their goals at B-CU.”
