UCF has officially announced the end of its education program at the Daytona Beach campus.

The program was ended due to a drop in enrollment, UCF spokesman Chad Binette said in an email.

Students currently in the program will be allowed to finish their degrees during a one-to-two-year transitional period. All other programs currently held at UCF Daytona Beach will continue.

Students at the Daytona Beach campus in the 2009-10 school year were enrolled in 3,064 credit hours of class; in 2013-14, student enrollment dropped to only 693 credit hours, according to Binette.

By the end of this spring, only five students will remain in the education program at Daytona Beach.
