I've Been Accepted, Now What?
CONGRATULATIONS ON YOUR OFFICIAL ACCEPTANCE!
What’s next? Below is a checklist that will help ensure that your transition to Dalton State is smooth and simple.
FINANCIAL AID & SCHOLARSHIPS
Apply online for federal aid and HOPE at www.fafsa.gov (DSC school code: 003956).
NEW STUDENT ORIENTATION
All new DSC students are required to attend Orientation. To register for your Orientation session, visit the orientation website to select a session date, and pay the $30 Orientation fee. Once you complete your registration, be sure to mark your calendar!
COMPUTING SERVICES & DALTON STATE E-MAIL
Every DSC student has a myDaltonState account. This will give you access to your Dalton State e-mail, Campus Announcements, Academic Records, and other important information. To access myDaltonState, go to: http://mydsc.daltonstate.edu. Be sure to check your DSC e-mail regularly, as this is the college’s primary method of contacting you.
If you wish to live in campus housing, you will need to complete a Housing Application. Complete your Housing Application and send it along with your $200 Housing application fee to the Bursar’s Office. The Housing Application can be found on the Residence Life website listed above.
New students will meet with an academic advisor to create a class schedule. You can schedule an advising appointment online to create your schedule. You will need to log in to myDaltonState and click Contact My Advisor under the Quick Links menu on the left. Use the same login information as myDaltonState. Follow the steps to schedule your appointment.
Student parking decals will be available at Orientation as well as during the Week of Welcome in August. Your parking decal is covered in your student fee.
DALTON STATE BOOKSTORE
Once you register for classes, you can visit the Dalton State Bookstore in person or online to see which books you will need. The Bookstore makes available all Dalton State course textbooks and educational supplies you will need. Also, be sure to stop by the Bookstore for Dalton State clothing and memorabilia!
What better way to say “I’m a Roadrunner” than by making it official with a Roadrunner Card? Your Roadrunner Card will serve as your official Dalton State student I.D. Your picture will be taken and your card will be made at Orientation, so be sure to look your best!
PAY TUITION & FEES
Tuition payment is due at the time of registration. Be sure to pay your tuition on time to avoid any penalties. If financial aid or scholarships do not cover your full tuition and fees , then you must pay the balance at the time of registration.
