Your College Degree Awaits

Daytona State College Partnership

Why pay tens of thousands of dollars for a college degree when you can transfer your Epic Flight Academy training for 23 college credits at Daytona State College? You have the option to earn your A.S. degree at DSC as well as your Bachelor’s. Or, you can earn your A.S. and transfer to another college for your Bachelor’s if you move from the area. Best of all, most of the required courses are available online. This flexibility is perfect for pilots. What are you waiting for? This opportunity is custom-made for pilots!
