  • Students under age 21 must supply an official copy of ACT scores.

Applicants with test scores falling below the above ranges are strongly encouraged to participate in Dyersburg State Community College's Skill Builder Program in order to learn the skills necessary to place into Learning Support courses.  For more information about the Skill Builder Program and how to register, contact Shirley Smith at 731-286-3219 or sasmith@dscc.edu.
Students placed in Learning Support may not register for courses for which Learning Support is a prerequisite. Students who fail, drop or withdraw from a required Learning Support course will be subject to the same registration restrictions at each subsequent registration until the deficiency is removed.
