Registration is currently underway for summer classes. The deadline to apply for summer semester is Thursday, May 8, however accepted students have until May 19 to register for classes.

“Any student pursuing a program could easily take up a summer course that applies to their area of study, whether they are working toward a certificate, associate degree, or bachelor degree,” said Admission Counselor Jonathan Marks.

Summer classes follow the same scheduling protocol as fall and spring classes at Dalton State, with three sessions offered during a semester, according to Marks. ‘A’ session classes will run from May 19 to July 19, ‘B’ session classes will run from May 19 to June 16, and ‘C’ session classes will run from June 18 to July 19.
