Davis Applied Technology College (DATC) was established in 1978 and offers an open system of education to students in the areas of Davis County and Morgan County, Utah. Rather than keeping a strict system of quarters or semesters of classes, DATC offers classes year-round, allowing students to gain instruction at any time.

Originally founded as a vocational school in Layton (called Davis Area Vocational Center), the early focus of the school was on the basics; ESL courses, elementary English and Mathematics were the main subjects. By 1987, after better facilities were built in nearby Kaysville, the school became Davis Applied Technology Center and the extension in the curriculum was complete.

Agreements between the college and certain local universities have allowed for credit equivalency for those students that wish to continue on with their studies and receive a baccalaureate degree.

  • In the School of Business, students can take the Business Technology, Financial Administration or Managing Bookkeeper curriculum.
  • The School of Construction offers programs in Heating and Air Conditioning, Electrician Apprentice and Plumbing Apprentice.
  • The School of Health Professions has programs in Dental Assisting, Medical or Nurse Assistant, EMS or Surgical Technology and more.
  • The School of Information Technology offers certificates in Web/Graphic Design and Information Technology.
  • In the School of Manufacturing, students can focus on Architectural and Engineering Design, Electronics or other machine operation disciplines.
  • The School of Service Professions gives students the opportunity to study subjects like Cosmetology or the Culinary Arts while also offering training to be a paralegal or law office assistant.
  • The School of Transportation is for students wishing to pursue a career in automotive repair.

DATC has been accredited by the Council on Occupational education.

“We Change Lives” is the philosophy the school stands by to this day.

Most Popular Fields of Study


Students hoping to attend can apply at any time during the year. Applications can be filled out online and must be accompanied by a non-refundable application fee. Once the process is complete, students will take a placement test and can get started quickly.

For certain Allied Health programs, more stringent requirements will apply. For example, students hoping to pursue the Practical Nurse certificate must have grades of a 3.0 or better in high school or college courses already taken (15 credits or more). Grades of a C or better must be achieved to continue on with the program. At the completion of this program, students will be able to go on to the associate degree program.

Financial Aid

Applicants in need of financial aid are advised to collect tax forms and other pertinent information so they can fill out all of the forms with ease. After receiving a PIN code, the FAFSA (Free Application for Federal Student Aid) can be filled out online. This form will help administrators determine whether or not you are eligible for federal grants and loans. Applicants may qualify for Pell Grants, Stafford Loans, Perkins Loans, Plus Loans (for parents of students) or Work-Study employment in order to help pay tuition. Some of these loans may be accompanied by subsidies which help defer interest until after graduation.

In addition, DATC offers scholarships for incoming students. Scholarship forms may be completed online. Students will have to obtain two reference letters (one professional and one personal) to submit along with the applications.
