CHESTER and MIDLOTHIAN, Va. – Students with busy schedules who are trying to balance family, work and their educations now have more options when it comes to planning their college courses. Starting in the Spring 2013 semester, John Tyler Community College is adding 12-Week Sessions to its class schedule. This is the latest in a series of new scheduling options designed to give students, who often must juggle multiple commitments, more planning flexibility.
In addition to the new 12-Week Session, the College’s spring semester will continue to include two different 8-Week Sessions as well as a Regular Session (16 weeks in length). John Tyler also offers courses during the day, starting as early as 7:00 a.m.; in the evenings; on the weekends; in the classroom; in an online format; and in a hybrid format that is taught partially online and partially in the classroom. Students also have a Full-Time Friday option that allows them to earn up to 15 hours of general education credits by coming to campus only on Fridays. And, as always, the course schedule is packed with classes covering an abundance of subjects.
