DSC Academic Advising: Non-Course Requirements

College Prep Curriculum Requirements

Understanding CPCs

Prior to attending Dalton State College, traditional age degree seeking students are expected to satisfy the College Prepatory Curriculum requirements in high school.  These requirements include 4 units of English, 4 units of Science, 4 units of Mathmatics, 3 units of Social Science, and 2 units of Foreign Language. Students, who were home-schooled, exited high school with a GED, or were on a technical path, may have deficiencies in one of more of these areas.

Note: If the student completed high school through a home-school program and believes that his/her curriculum was as rigorous as a college prepratory program, he/she can meet with Dr. Angela Harris to discuss the possiblity of exempting these requirements.  Otherwise, the student will need to take an additional course or courses at Dalton State that will not count toward his/her degree program but will impact his/her gpa.
