Eagle Access at Dyersburg State Community College
Dyersburg State Community College plans to begin the Eagle Access program for students with intellectual disabilities in Fall 2022. DSCC will be the first community college in Tennessee to start a comprehensive transition and postsecondary program. Eagle Access is a four-term, two-year program. Students will take two college classes (audit or credit) based upon their interests, needs, and goals each term. Students will also take four non-college level courses through Continuing Education: Life Skills/Independent Living, Digital Literacy, Career Development/Exploration, and Eagle Access Internship work-based learning experience throughout the program. Students will receive a certificate of completion at the conclusion of the program and will be invited to participate in annual commencement exercises.
