Extended Campuses

In addition to the White Bridge Road campus 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. All six extended campuses provide the same individualized attention, helpful student services, and quality education as the White Bridge Road 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. The program also offers three technical certificate programs: Industrial Electrical and Instrumentation Technician, Industrial Maintenance Mechanic and Process Operator.  Students learn to work as members of teams that are responsible for the production process within an industry.

Southeast Campus

After significant enrollment increases at the main campus, the college and community determined there was a need to better serve the residents of southeastern Davidson County. In 2005, the Southeast Center opened on Foster Avenue to provide greater access to higher education opportunities in this area of the county. In fall 2012, the Southeast Center was relocated to 5248 Hickory Hollow Parkway and was renamed the Southeast “Campus” to more accurately reflect the expansion of the facility and its services. To help better serve the increasing student enrollment, the renovated 2nd floor opened in January 2016, with the addition of over 40,000 square feet.

The facility features up-to-date science labs, a bookstore, two open computer labs, two expansive student lounges, multiple quiet and group study areas, a testing center, and plenty of parking.

Currently, Southeast students can enroll in general education core classes, which lead to Nashville State degrees and certificates, as well as fulfill Tennessee Transfer Pathway requirements. Many students are preparing for careers in Business Administration, Accounting, Health Sciences, and Computer Science fields. Our Law Enforcement facility offers degrees and a certificate for students interested in pursuing a career in Law Enforcement. The Randy Rayburn School of Culinary Arts, featuring a state-of-the-art kitchen, prepares students for careers as chefs and culinary professionals. The Hospitality Management Program prepares students for a career in the dynamic hospitality industry. The rapidly growing hospitality industry offers various careers in food and beverage, hotel and culinary arts. A balance of classroom, laboratory, and work experience opportunities prepare students for this challenging industry.

Through community involvement and support, the Southeast Campus is making the fastest growing part of Davidson County an excellent place to learn, work, and live.

Dickson Campus

Nashville State Community College has a new home in Dickson for at least the next three years, while it works to find a long-term solution for a permanent campus location. The campus is located at 206 West Walnut Street, the recently vacated senior citizens center in downtown Dickson. After an agreement with the City of Dickson was approved, the College made an investment to modify the building for a more collegiate environment with student support, study and lounge spaces, along with classrooms.  The Dickson Campus provides a full array of general education core classes, which lead to associate degrees and certificates. Many students are preparing for careers in Psychology, Business Administration, Pre-Health Professions, and Education fields.

Nashville State has had a physical presence in the county, providing student support services and degree programs for nearly 15 years. The College moved out of The Renaissance Center, where it has been since 2008, at the end of July 2022 when the building was sold.
