Academic Calendar

Students seeking admission must submit all official documents by the published deadlines to the Office of Enrollment Services. This policy applies to all classifications. Former Dalton State students not enrolled for 3 (three) consecutive semesters must submit an Application for Readmission for the desired term of enrollment. Transients must follow guidelines as stated in the catalog.

Orientation and Registration for New Students

All new students are required to participate in New Student Orientation.  The mission of New Student Orientation is to welcome all entering students and their families to Dalton State College and to introduce them to DSC services, campus resources, and members of the staff, faculty, and current student body in order to prepare them for successful academic, personal and social transitions.  Once new students complete admission requirements and are accepted, they will be able to register to attend New Student Orientation.  For admission requirements, please see /admission/.
