Student Reviews and Ratings for Dyersburg State Community College
Great campus but the schools administrators seem very unorganized. They took my payment to enroll and for my exams all in one, but never applied my payment to my exams. Luckily I had my recipe and cards transactions. I ended up having to wait to take my exams because they didn't have me on the paid list. Three months later while others who were in the initial class with me were finished and starting careers, I was finally taking my exams... Good school, but stay on top of the admin or you'll be lost in a stack of paperwork on someone's desk..Source of the review: Google Places, Google Maps™
My experience at dyersburg state has been the worst. I took anatomy 1 and 2 over the summer, and my professors were great. The system is awful though. I was late to be registered after being assured by the one stop center that I was ready for classes. I explained I was from another university, but they failed to tell me until the day I came and asked why I couldn't register, that I needed to file a consortium agreement. I had to file a consortium agreement with my home university to get my refund money for the class. (Which I had to pay up front for and then be reimbursed by my pell grant which makes no sense). After filing, the paperwork got "lost" and had to be resent. I had to constantly call dyersburg state to get someone to answer and figure out what was going on. I was told everything was good to go in JUNE and that my money would be in when my second class started in JULY. The first week into my second course, my money still hadn't come in. I called DSCCs woman who was over the agreements and told her that the information had not been sent. After unprofessionally raising her voice and saying "I sent them everything!" She asked if I started my second course (mind you second courses had already been started for over a week and she didnt bother to check) to which I said yes. She told me that's what she was waiting on and told me she JUST NOW SENT IT(in July, after I had been told everything was good in June). Now, I'm trying to get my transcript sent after selecting the "wait until final grades are posted" option. Again, no one bothered to check or actually do their job. Instead, they said it got "lost" and that I needed to file another one. Second one still hasnt come through. I've determined that dscc seems to say something has been "lost" instead of saying they didnt send it. I will never take another course at DSCC, and I will highly encourage any person who is thinking about enrolling to not go here.Source of the review: Google Places, Google Maps™

Edited Review:Aside from recent bomb threats and a few other mishaps, the online RODP section to electives such as art and music are barely functional. Usually, those type of classes are in class and Online substitutes are poorly implemented.Also, there is little in other fields of study aside from ER and nurse practitioners.A good alternative to most community colleges.However, prior to the first year, DSCC has undergone distressing changes which have negatively impacted my experience there.The under-preparedness of rushed technological protocols dial the educational bar set to your average public high school.In addition, those changes have also unnecessarily raised the already exuberant costs of books and materials at the local book store.Source of the review: Google Places, Google Maps™
I had a horrible experience with the summer class. I decided to take an online class with Dyersburg, and everything was good until the purge date. After the purge date, 13 students were still said to be in the program, but because we needed 15 students for an ONLINE class, the whole class was dropped. I had to find another online class to take which was not even taught by a Dyersburg teacher. This class ended up costing me even more money, but I decided to go with it. After 3 days of taking the class, I realized that there was no way I could continue to take the class and work full time. Luckily, there was an online document shown provided by this class saying that I would be refunded seventy-five percent of my money within a week of starting the class, and so, seeing this made me feel more comfortable with resigning in the class. However, when refunded my money I was refunded barely half. This experience of trying to take a class provided by Dyersburg State proved to be a waste of time and money. I am highly disappointed with this college and do not recommend it. Do not waste your hard earned money here.Source of the review: Google Places, Google Maps™
