Why Dalton State?
What Matters Most
Hear From Our Students
Our student-centered approach at Dalton State begins during the admissions process, as our counselors will work one-on-one with prospective students and their families to navigate the admissions and financial aid processes. Together, we’ll make sure you know what is required to ensure all your papers are signed, all your qualified funding is secured, and all your questions are answered.
All students are invited to apply for scholarships from the Dalton State Foundation. Last year, the Foundation awarded 154 scholarships totaling more than $250,000. Plus, 58% of our students receive some form of need-based financial support. With our already low tuition and fees, even a modest grant or scholarship can go a long way at Dalton State.
While tuition prices and average student loan debt is skyrocketing at most four-year schools, Dalton State remains committed to offering an outstanding value – a great education at an affordable cost. We believe the most important investment is the one we make in you, not the other way around.
