secondary school credits showing evidence of graduation from an accredited high school or
a GED certificate, a completed application form, a non-refundable $20 application fee, and

Darton State College has raised its regular admissions standards as an incentive for high
school students to reach their full preparation potential. However, the University System of
Georgia wants to assure that all students with the potential to benefit from a college
education have access to admission. Therefore, all two-year colleges have special
admission categories and standards for those who may not quite meet the regular
admission standards. These categories include high school graduates with career/technical
diplomas, GED recipients, students who have been out of high school for at least five years
(non-traditional students), international students, and home-schooled students, among
Please review ALL of the admissions categories described below to see
which you should select to guide your application.
Regular Admissions
Applicants must have completed all 17 of the required 17 College Preparatory
Curriculum (CPC) courses in high school, or all 13 of the required 13
Career/Technical Preparatory Curriculum courses in high school. Students who
have not completed the 17 units of the CPC and who intend to be in degree
programs leading to baccalaureate degrees must take additional courses to make up
for CPC course deficiencies.
Students graduating from high school with a College Preparatory Diploma must
present a 2.0 high school GPA. Students graduating from high school with a
Technology/Career Preparatory Diploma must present a 2.2 high school GPA.
SAT I and/or ACT scores are not required for regular admissions; however, minimum
SAT scores of 430 verbal (17 English ACT) and 400 math (17 math ACT) may be
submitted to exempt COMPASS placement testing, provided the applicant has
graduated from high school with a College Preparatory Diploma and the scores are
five years old or less.
