Satellite Campuses

In addition to the main campus on White Bridge Road in Nashville, Nashville State has educational sites located throughout Davidson County and the Middle Tennessee area. Each location offers courses and programs to help students meet their educational and/or career goals. In addition to offering classes at various educational and business sites, the college has four permanent satellite campuses. All satellite campuses provide the same individualized attention, helpful student services, and quality education as the main campus.

Humphreys County Campus

In 1999, the Humphreys County Center for Higher Education opened to serve Humphreys County and surrounding counties. This vibrant local-state-federal partnership has made the Humphreys County Center a model for off-site campus expansion statewide. Nashville State Community College is the lead institution of higher learning at the 33,000 square foot facility located at 695 Holly Lane in Waverly.

Students can take classes and complete degrees and certificates in areas that reflect the workforce demands and needs of the region. Areas of high demand include Health Sciences, Education and Teaching. In 2006, the Industrial Process Control Technology (IPCT) program was added to these offerings. Working with chemical processing plants in the Waverly/New Johnsonville area and surrounding areas as program partners, a curriculum for the IPCT program was developed. The IPCT degree has two concentrations: Process Technician and Maintenance Technician. Students learn to work as members of teams that are responsible for the production process within an industry.
