Expenses

Tuition and Fees

Tuition and other fees are authorized and updated periodically by the Board of Regents of the University System of Georgia and are payable and due at the time of registration each term.

All fees are due and payable upon registration. Registration is finalized and complete when all tuition and fees are paid for the specific term, including parts of term within the full term. Payment of fees may not be deferred. Failure to pay for any class during any term or part of term could result in cancellation of all classes. Payment by Cash, Check, Credit Card, web check/credit card and/or pre-approved financial aid is accepted. (For all online payments, please visit www.daltonstate.edu.

Students who have financial aid will have their aid applied directly to their student account. This will be done periodically throughout the term as student’s aid is approved and as verification of attendance is completed. Refunds will be disbursed to Higher One throughout the semester as financial aid is processed.

To find out more information about Higher One and the refund process, please visit the Office of the Bursar's website at https://www.daltonstate.edu/about/bursar-overview.cms.

Beginning Fall 2009, all MasterCard, Discover, Visa and American Express transactions will be processed through CashNet; A convenience fee equaling 2.9% of your total transaction, with a minimum charge of $1.00, will be assessed by CashNet and added to the amount charged to your card. (For example, a $1,000 payment to DSC via credit card would result in a $1,029.00 charge to your credit card.) Web check payment will continue to be an option available to you at no additional charge. The only forms of payment accepted in the Bursar's Office will be cash, check or money order. This applies to payments submitted in person or via postal services. Access will be provided for anyone visiting the Bursar's Office wishing to make an online payment through CashNet.

When using pre-approved financial aid as a payment method, please note that submission of a fee statement will consider the financial aid student registered. Therefore, the financial aid recipient now has an obligation to follow all procedures to either complete payment or formally withdraw. The effective date of withdrawal may indicate a financial obligation is due Dalton State College, which may require payment with funds other than financial aid. If such instance should occur and the remaining balance remains unpaid for more than 120 days, a third party collection agency may be used and the debtor could be obligated to pay not only all unpaid tuition/fee charges and associated expenses incurred by registering, but also any late payment fees.  The debtor could also be held responsible to reimburse Dalton State College the fees of any collection agency, which may be based on a percentage at a maximum of 33.3% of the debt, and all costs and expenses, including reasonable attorney's fees, we incur in such collection efforts.  In addition, if an account is referred to an outside collection agency, balances due to Dalton State College will be reported to all three credit bureaus.

NelNet

Dalton State College is aware of the financial burden of earning a college education.  In an effort to offer an alternative payment option, Dalton State College has partnered with Nelnet Business Solutions to offer our students and families a Tuition Payment Plan.  This plan will allow students and families to avoid the traditional lump-sum payments and spread this payment evenly for up to five months for each semester.

The Nelnet Payment Plan option permits students and families to budget costs for tuition, fees, as well as room and board that may not be covered by other financial aid.  The program is not a loan, so there are no interest or finance charges, and there is no credit check.  The cost to enroll varies depending on the date you sign up for the payment plan (lower enrollment fees for early sign-up, slightly higher fees for later sign-up) and monthly payments can be made from an automatic bank account draft or charged to a credit card.

NelNet Payment Plan enrollment dates vary year to year and are communicated to students via email as well as displayed on our website each semester.  Please visit the website at http://www.daltonstate.edu/about/nelnet.cms for enrollment dates.

If you have any questions, please contact the Bursar's Office at 706-272-4435 or by email at bursaroffice@daltonstate.edu.
