Times and technology change – as do most other things in this technology-driven age. Daymar College has changed, too. From its original name, Owensboro Junior Business College when it opened in 1963, to the present Daymar College, now with more campuses and more programs to offer.
But there are few fundamental ideals that won’t change with time and technology at Daymar College, one of which is our timeless commitment to provide the same quality instruction and relevant education people have come to expect from Daymar College.
From the junior college that it was 47 years ago, Daymar College is now a duly accredited school offering over 35 career tracks in 13 different academic programs. It is accredited by the Accredited Council for Independent College and School (ACICS), a U.S. Department of Education-recognized accrediting agency.
It is likewise supported by additional accreditation from the state level as a measure to ensure that the college meets the minimum quality standards set for degree- or certificate-giving schools and colleges. This is the public’s assurance that a school or college provides excellent training and education.
Daymar College offers mostly business courses, including accounting, billing and coding, bookkeeping, business administration technology, business management, criminal justice, human resource management, medical assistant, business administration, and business management. In the light of a growing demand in medical courses, the college has likewise expanded its programs to include medical assisting and health care administration.
In recognition of its effective computer technology program, Daymar College was chosen as a member of Microsoft Authorized Academic Training Program (AATP) and a Prometric Testing Center and a Microsoft Office specialist test site.
To accommodate its growing number of students, Daymar College has moved from its old building in 1999 to a sprawling 6.4-acre property at Buckland Square in Owensboro, Kentucky. In another strategic move designed to expand its reach and make education easier to obtain, Daymar College has ventured into online operation. The college offers five different programs to choose from, both business and health. The college awards certificates of completion, certifications, diplomas, and/or associate degrees for students who take up and complete the courses they choose.
In fact, Daymar College will continue to adjust and adapt to changes to satisfy the changing needs of students and the job market. It believes students need not be threatened by new technologies as they impact on employment as long as they are willing to learn new skills, in-campus or online.
Daymar College is committed to providing a warm, friendly, nurturing atmosphere where students can learn the skills required to obtain the careers they need and embrace the lives they want to secure for them and their families.
