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 five permanent satellite campuses. All satellite campuses provide the same individualized attention, helpful student services, and quality education as the main campus.

Cookeville Campus

In the late 1980’s when key business and industry leaders determined a need for technical training in the Upper Cumberland region, the Cookeville Area-Putnam County Chamber of Commerce responded. Local civic and industrial leaders formed a partnership with Nashville State Community College to create degrees and training that would supply graduates with the skills suited for this high-tech region. For the first four years, classes were held in the conference room at a Chamber location, in Adult Education Offices, and at Tennessee Tech University. In 1999, ground was broken for a permanent campus at 1000 Neal Street. The NSCC Cookeville campus opened in Fall 2002 and has consistently met the needs of the community for over a decade.

Today, there are degree programs, certificate programs, and general education courses that easily transfer to Tennessee Tech and other four-year universities. The degree programs include Business Management, Computer Technology, Electrical Engineering Technology, General Technology, Office Administration, and Police Science, while the certificate programs include Administrative Assistant, Computer-Aided Drafting (CAD), Drafting and Construction, Industrial Electrical Maintenance, and Web Page Authoring. Specific courses in Cisco Networking are also available. The Automated Control Systems concentration of the Electrical Engineering Technology program is unique to the Cookeville campus and is one of many programs designed to meet the specific needs of the region’s workforce. Learning support classes are also taught to prepare students for college-level work.

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 Pre-Nursing, Education and Teaching. The newest addition to these offerings is Process Control Technology (PTEC). Working with chemical processing plants in the Waverly/New Johnsonville area and surrounding areas as program partners, a curriculum for the PTEC program was developed. The PTEC 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.

Southeast Campus in Nashville

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. The newly renovated facility features up-to-date science labs, smart classrooms, a bookstore, an open computer lab, an expansive student lounge, several 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, Pre-Nursing, Healthcare Management, and Computer Science fields. A Criminal Justice facility including two classrooms, a multi-purpose training room, and a forensics lab was added in 2013. The Criminal Justice program announced an agreement with MTSU’s Criminal Justice program which brings MTSU bachelor’s level classes to the Southeast Campus. Also at this time, a state of the art kitchen was opened to support the Randy Rayburn School of Culinary Arts program that relocated to the Southeast Campus. Learning support classes are also taught to prepare students for college-level work.

At the Southeast Campus, Nashville State is privileged to partner with Simon Youth Academy and serve as the location of the Academy at Hickory Hollow. 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.

Nashville State at the Renaissance Center in Dickson

Although Nashville State has offered classes in Dickson for many years, fall 2007 marked an expanded and more permanent presence when civic leaders asked the college to become the lead institution for higher education in Dickson County. Course offerings, enrollment, and enthusiasm have increased each semester as the Center has evolved.

In fall 2009, Nashville State relocated programs to the Renaissance Center in Dickson. Nashville State at the Renaissance Center provides a full array of general education transfer courses that may be applied to Associate or Bachelor’s degrees in many areas of interest. Learning support classes are also taught to prepare students for college-level work. Additionally, students have the option of taking online courses through the Center. Some resources available to Dickson students include admissions counseling, registration assistance, Testing Center, and computer lab.

Clarksville Campus

With the support of local and state government officials, the Clarksville Campus opened its doors in fall 2012 to provide additional higher education opportunities for Montgomery and surrounding counties. The new campus is located in the heart of Clarksville at 1760 Wilma Rudolph Parkway. The newly renovated site features smart classrooms, science labs, a Testing Center, a student lounge, and an open computer lab.
