CHESTER and MIDLOTHIAN, Va. – To help students impacted by the COVID-19 pandemic and the stay at home order catch up or get ahead in their college education, John Tyler Community College recently added a new class session to its academic schedule: Maymester. These online classes, which begin May 15 and run through June 7, are designed for students who need or want to earn additional college credits within a short period of time while saving money on tuition. Courses that make up Maymester cover subjects ranging from business, film appreciation and medical terminology to public speaking, psychology and economics. Maymester class options can be found by visiting and selecting “Maymester” in the “All Sessions” drop-down menu.

Courses offered as part of Maymester are also included, in slightly longer formats, during the college’s regular Summer 2020 semester, which begins May 26. All summer semester courses are being offered in one of two online formats: video-enhanced, which includes class time and meetings with instructors on specific dates and at specific times, or virtual. Students interesting in exploring Tyler’s full summer class schedule may visit and search by course length, subject, or class format. In addition to its online class schedule for Maymester and summer, Tyler is also providing students with remote access to a variety of support services from advising and admissions to tutoring, career services and the library.

Those interested in signing up for a Maymester or summer semester class may register now. Students new to Tyler must first complete an application for admission. That online application and other important information about getting started at Tyler can be found at Current Tyler students can enroll in classes online using the Student Information System in the myTyler portal. Starting April 27, 2020, new and current students will also be able to enroll in Tyler’s fall semester classes. For information about tuition, fees and payment deadlines, visit
