  1. Have completed at least one semester at Dalton State College;
  2. Have exited all learning support requirements.
  3. Have attended Dalton State College within the past three semesters;
  4. Not be on academic probation or academic or disciplinary dismissal (restricted enrollment or exclusion); and
  5. Make a grade of “C” or better in the transient course(s) taken. (Note: It is the student’s responsibility to request that an official transcript be sent to Dalton State at the end of the term during which the transient course(s) are taken.)

Note: Dalton State College students may be approved for transient status for only one term.

TO REQUEST APPROVAL:

  1. Complete this Transient Student Permission Request Form; have it signed by your advisor, and return to the Registrar’s Office for processing. A copy of the approval will be mailed to you at the address you have indicated on this form.
  2. Contact the institution that you wish to attend to obtain admission information, including application deadlines, and course offerings and their descriptions for the quarter/semester that you wish to enroll.
