Dalton State College, also referred to as DSC or Dalton State, is one of eight state colleges in the University System of Georgia; it is also one of four University System units with a Technical Division supervised by the separate Technical College System of Georgia. The college is located in Dalton, Georgia. The college was founded as Dalton Junior College in July 1963 and opened in September 1967 offering programs designed to provide the first two years of college work for students preparing to transfer to four-year degree granting institutions. The addition of a vocational and technical division in 1976 made the school a comprehensive community college, able to serve nontransfer students wishing to develop work skills at the certificate or associate-degree level. In 1987, the Board of Regents of the University System of Georgia removed the word "Junior" from the college's name: It became Dalton College.
