The Tennessee Board of Regents two-year and four-year institutions developed the PreK-3 emphasis for the Associate of Science in Teaching degree to ensure a seamless transfer among the 19 TBR institutions of higher education. This area of emphasis is common among all TBR institutions and is considered as fulfilling the coursework for the freshman and sophomore years at those institutions.

To facilitate success in this program, all students should enroll in ORN 1010 - Orientation: Learning to Succeed  during their first semester at DSCC.
