Adult Learners

Returning to college as an adult can be difficult & intimidating, but it can also be one of the most rewarding decisions you can make! DSCC is committed to helping you succeed. 

Our New Student Orientation is the foundation of student success at Dyersburg State. It will help alleviate any anxiety you have by answering questions about academic expectations, support services, financial aid, student life and prepare you for a successful college experience.
