CHESTER and MIDLOTHIAN, Va. – Summer is a great time for vacations. It’s also a great time to get ahead, catch up and get creative. At John Tyler Community College, we believe you can do it all, whether you are a new student, a continuing John Tyler student, or a student at a four-year college or university who is home for the summer. We’ve packed our class schedule with everything from algebra, biology, history, and criminology to ballet, photography, science fiction literature, and screenwriting. Class scheduling is flexible. We offer day, evening, weekend, online and hybrid (partially online and partially in the classroom) courses, so that you can build your education and still have time for your job, your family and friends, and summer fun. 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.
Registration for John Tyler Community College’s Summer 2012 semester runs April 9 – May 18, 2012. A complete list of classes may be found online at www.jtcc.edu/schedule.
