An Extended Campus Program is offered away from the Dalton State main campus at our Gilmer County Center in Gilmer County.
Dalton State's ability to offer these courses is dependent upon adequate enrollments. Students may enroll in both extended campus and Dalton State campus courses during the same term, subject to class load limits.
A message from the Director of Evening and Extended Campus Programs:
Thank you for your interest in the Dalton State Evening and Extended Campus Program. This program strives to provide academic excellence at an affordable cost and at convenient locations. Dalton State College offers a full range of course offerings in the evenings. Most (but not all) of the college's programs of study can be completed through the Evening Program. Those interested in attending college at night will find that Dalton State has classes that meet several times a week in the late afternoon and in the early evening. Normal class starting times are 3:05 p.m., 4:45 p.m., 6:10 p.m., 7:35 p.m., and at 9:00 p.m.. These times may vary depending on the course. Completion time for a certificate or degree program depends on the semester class load that a student carries. Those interested in the Evening Program will also find a wide range of classes offered during the summer semester.
In addition to classes offered in the evening and on Saturdays on our Main Campus in Dalton, the college also offers general education credit classes at the Dalton State Gilmer County Center, in Ellijay. These classes include courses from Areas A-F of the Core Curriculum as well as Learning Support classes. Please check the Dalton State schedule of classes for dates, times and course offerings.
All credit courses offered at our extended campus sites carry the same academic credit as the equivalent courses offered on the main campus in Dalton. We are proud of our record of academic excellence here at Dalton State, and our extended campus courses are normally taught by full time faculty members.
Students who have attended or are currently attending Appalachian Technical College, Coosa Valley Technical College, or Northwestern Technical College, also have a unique opportunity to earn an Associate of Applied Science Cooperative Degree by combining their technical programs with general education courses taken from Dalton State College. Depending on the technical area of study, students with the A.A.S. Degree can continue with their studies at Dalton State and seek a Bachelor's of Applied Science Degree.
Dalton State also offers a selection of general educations classes on our main campus on Saturdays. Not all general education classes are offered on Saturdays, so please check with your advisor, or with the Dalton State Schedule of Classes, about class availability.
Applicants who are interested in attending credit classes in the evenings or at our extended campus sites should apply to the college for acceptance using the same procedures as all Dalton State College students. For application (available online) and financial aid materials, and for information about the Cooperative Degree Program, please contact our Office of Enrollment and Student Services, our extended campus site coordinators, or my office. For a listing of credit classes offered at our extended campus sites, please consult our Dalton State Schedule of Classes.
