Virtual New Student Orientation


Dyersburg State Offering Exciting Virtual Orientation Experience for New Summer and Fall Students


Students planning to attend Dyersburg State Community College (DSCC) this summer and fall will be able to take part in an improved New Student Orientation virtual experience via Zoom teleconferencing. During orientation, students will have an opportunity to have live interaction with faculty and staff and ask questions. Students will learn more about courses and majors, financial aid, student services, tutoring, student life organizations and will be able to register for classes, all in one day.

New Student Orientation is required of all new students and must be completed by the first week of classes, however, the sooner students sign up and attend, the more choices will be available in building a class schedule.
