CHESTER and MIDLOTHIAN, Va. – John Tyler Community College is opening its doors in a new way by launching virtual information sessions to help community members explore options for starting or continuing college and to learn about training opportunities that can help them get back to work. The sessions will be held three times a week: on Tuesdays at 3:00 p.m.; Wednesdays at 1:00 p.m.; and Thursdays at 5:30 p.m.
During each session, a Tyler outreach coordinator will discuss the college’s programs, support services, and the upcoming summer and fall semesters. They will also provide information on the ways Tyler can help students avoid losing momentum when it comes to their college education; how the college can assist students in getting the skillsets needed for a new career; guaranteed admissions agreements that allow Tyler students to transfer to four-year colleges and universities; and more. Each session will include time for attendees to ask questions and get additional information on topics of interest to them. Attendees who are ready to get started at Tyler will be provided the additional assistance needed to take part in summer and/or fall registration, which is underway now.
All virtual information sessions are open to learners of all ages, but the information covered in the Thursday sessions will focus more specifically on the needs of adult learners and career switchers. There is no charge to attend a session, and parents are welcome to attend with their teens. Those wishing to participate must register in advance at www.jtcc.edu/infosessions so a web link to the session can be sent to them. Those unable to attend during one of the scheduled session times may schedule a one-on-one appointment by emailing email@example.com.
John Tyler Community College offers more than 75 majors that provide pathways to careers in high-demand fields; transfer opportunities to four-year colleges and universities; and industry credentials and licensures. The college, with campuses in Chester and Midlothian, online classes, and off-campus classrooms, served more than 14,000 students during the 2018-19 academic year. It also assisted more than 7,000 learners through its workforce development division, Community College Workforce Alliance, a partnership between Tyler and Reynolds community colleges.
