DSCC to Continue All Classes Online Through May 8
Out of concern for its students, faculty and staff, Dyersburg State Community College (DSCC) has announced that all classes will continue to be delivered in an online format through May 9 amid COVID-19 concerns.
All three locations in Dyersburg, Covington and Trenton will be closed to students and the general public until further notice. All faculty and staff will be working from home through April 5. DSCC phone extensions will be forwarded to the appropriate faculty and staff. A limited amount of faculty and staff will be working onsite after April 5 with the majority working remotely from home.
Students will continue to meet with their classes through eLearn and the Zoom teleconferencing app during their normal scheduled class times. More information regarding Zoom and how to access classes can be found at www.dscc.edu/coronavirus on the student link. Students can also utilize Zoom for virtual tutoring assistance from the Academic Success Center and Student Support Services.
