For in-state students, Dalton State is a very affordable college. Generally, if students have filled out the FAFSA, they will be eligible for and probably will receive a little from the HOPE scholarship. Some students also receive the Pell Grant and other federal aid. However, out-of-state students do not receive HOPE. The school itself does not offer any scholarships, grants, or loans, except for a small scholarship offered to freshmen.

When students are trying to pay fees or even just trying to see if they have any, they may be in for a bit of a hassle. Students are often shuffled from building to building and/or person to person, trying to find who to pay, how to pay, when and where to pay, or even whether they have to pay. Also, "holds" can randomly appear on students' transcripts, grades, etc., and it is up to the students to find out why.  Generally, neither the Academic Advising Center nor the Financial Aid Office will tell students when they have holds, so students can be blindsided at the end of a semester by fees they didn't know existed. The school seems to be the most disjointed in this area.

Facts & Statistics

Tips for Getting Aid
  • At the beginning of the semester, go to Financial Aid and check on your fees. Pay them as soon as possible.
  • Check your records for holds periodically throughout the school year.
  • Fill out the FAFSA, but don't depend on it to find enough money to cover everything. Look for other scholarships, as well.
