Daymar College History

Daymar College has a rich business education history. When it first opened its doors as Owensboro Business College in 1963, the main academic focus was on general business studies. Two years later, secretarial science and accounting were added. When the School moved from the Triplett Street address to East Ninth Street, it added data processing, business administration and clerical areas to the diploma offerings.

In 1970, the College was nationally accredited as a business college by the Accrediting Commission of the Association of Independent Colleges and Schools and was approved by the United States Department of Education to award financial aid to students.

The College began offering all programs on a credit hour basis and was authorized by the Kentucky State Board for Proprietary Education to award Associate degrees in 1973. The United States Office of Education awarded the College a Special Services project, making it the first private career college to receive such an honor.

Continued growth marked the next two decades with numerous facility changes and program additions. Finally, in June of 1999, the College moved into a free-standing, one-story structure built specifically for the College. Located on 6.4 acres of land at 3361 Buckland Square in the Heritage Park Development of Owensboro, Kentucky, the facility comprises approximately 17,000 square feet of space.

By 2000, the College was chosen as a Microsoft® Authorized Academic Training Program (AATP) member, and became a Prometric Testing Center and a Microsoft Office Specialist test site.

The name was changed in August of 2001 from Owensboro Junior College of Business to Daymar College in anticipation of opening additional locations outside of Owensboro. The Louisville campus was opened to students in October of 2001. Today, Daymar College is four campuses strong and continues to expand their offerings for continued educational excellence.
