CHESTER and MIDLOTHIAN, Va. – We’re still experiencing days where there’s a chill in the air, but believe it or not, the hot days of summer are not far away. At John Tyler Community College, we’re getting ready for a summer full of great classes that cover topics from watercolor painting, college algebra, ballroom dancing and Spanish to filmmaking, biology, creative writing and religion. So, whether you want to take a class to get ahead or catch up, to help build your resume or to explore an interest, John Tyler has a course that’s sure to meet your needs. The College offers day, evening, weekend, online and hybrid (taught partially online and partially in the classroom) courses that are designed to give you the flexibility you need to balance family, work and classes. We also know money matters. Tuition and fees at John Tyler are about one third the tuition and fees charged at a four-year public college or university in Virginia. And, thanks to guaranteed transfer agreements, John Tyler associate degree graduates who wish to continue their education and who meet certain criteria are able to seamlessly transfer to more than 25 four-year colleges and universities in Virginia where they can finish their bachelor’s degrees.
