Thank you for your interest in joining Roadrunner Nation. Please follow the steps below to apply for admission.

#1 Review the application instructions based on your student status.

Application Instructions

#2 Choose the right application for you. 

All new students applying for Spring, Summer, or Fall 2021/2022 will apply online through  The Nest Portal. Students who have attended classes at Dalton State and are previous students need to complete the Readmit Application. 

We are waiving the ACT and SAT scores for all 2021 semesters. 

International students should apply online through the Nest Portal. Once the application is submitted you will be processed through our Banner system. You will receive a follow-up email with how your application is being processed. If accepted you will receive another email with instructions on how to login to your Nest Portal and register for Orientation. 

All former students can complete the Readmit form to be considered for readmission. 

#3 Create Your Nest Portal Account.

If you haven't already done so, create your Nest Portal Account - it's your connection to the admissions office and will give you access to apply, check your application status, register for campus visits, sign-up for orientation and other events, and contact your admissions counselor.
