CHESTER and MIDLOTHIAN, Va. – When you think of summer, picnics, vacations with family and friends, and outings to the pool and beach often come to mind. Summer is definitely a great time for all those activities. It’s also a wonderful time to catch up, get ahead, get creative and continue your education. John Tyler Community College can help you do that. The best part? You don’t have to give up summer fun to take classes. At John Tyler, we understand that our students often must juggle family, work and time off with their classes, so our summer schedule includes day, evening, weekend, online and hybrid (partially online and partially in the classroom) courses offered in 5-Week, 6-Week and 10-Week session lengths. And, whether you are a new student, a continuing John Tyler student, a teacher who needs recertification credits, or a student at a four-year college or university who is home for the summer, we have classes that will meet your needs. Our schedule includes classes in subjects such as calculus, biology, U.S. history, creative writing, German, music appreciation, first aid and safety, drawing, developmental psychology, jazz and more. We also know money matters. So we work hard to keep classes affordable. Currently, tuition and fees at John Tyler are just over 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.
