January 18, 2021: Update on Student Services

Trailblazers,

With the spring semester now underway, I wanted to provide you with a brief update about connecting to student services to help you with your classes at Tyler.  

Student Services
Through at least the end of January, most student services will continue to only be provided remotely. Information about hours and how to connect to these services may be found on the college website. If you’re not sure which office you need, reach out to our Help Hub for assistance. 

In addition to registration, advising and other help, don’t forget you have access to free tutoring through our Academic Resource Center (ARC), and you can get assistance with research, technology loans and other services through our Library.

Computer and Internet Access on Campus
I also want to remind you that if you need access to a computer or the internet in order to take your Zoom or online classes or to connect to student services, there are designated spaces on both campuses available for your use. 

Safety and Resources
Please remember, if you come to campus, you must follow the all of college’s safety protocols, which include wearing a mask and socially distancing. There are times when you must not come to campus. These include, but are not limited to: you are ill (regardless of symptoms); have symptoms consistent with COVID-19; have been tested for COVID-19 and are awaiting results; have recently been diagnosed with COVID-19; and have been exposed to someone with COVID-19. If you meet any of these criteria, do not come to campus, and contact the Dean of Students Office (deanofstudents@jtcc.edu) for assistance. 

Even if you are not coming to campus, if you’ve been diagnosed with COVID-19, please contact the Dean of Students Office (deanofstudents@jtcc.edu) so that we may assist you. Additional information about the college’s response to the pandemic may be found at www.jtcc.edu/covid-19. 

Martin Luther King Jr. Holiday
As a reminder, the college is closed today, Monday, January 18 in honor of the Martin Luther King Jr. Holiday. King once said, “Whatever your life's work is, do it well. A man should do his job so well that the living, the dead, and the unborn could do it no better.” Whether you are at Tyler to study remotely and/or on-campus, find a job and/or to transfer, and/or meet personal and/or professional goals, do well, in fact, do very well! Our mission is to provide quality educational opportunities that inspire student success and community vitality with a vision of a success story for every student. We are here to help you be successful, so please reach out to our student support offices whenever you need assistance. I wish you the very best as you seek to fulfill your educational goals and reach the “mountaintop” in your chosen field!

January 6, 2021: Spring Semester to Begin Remotely

Students, 
I write to you with an important update about the start of our spring semester. The semester will begin on time, with our 15-week and 1st 8-week classes kicking off the week of January 11. However, due to community surges in COVID-19 cases and out of an abundance of caution, classes scheduled to be held on-campus January 11 – 16 will meet remotely.

If you are registered for a class that is scheduled to meet on campus the week of January 11, you will receive instructions from your instructor on how to access your class. Please monitor your student email and your course in Canvas for this information, which should be provided to you by no later than 24 hours before your first class meeting. 

We will have open computer labs on both campuses for students who need to access a computer or the internet. Go to Moyar Hall, M211 at the Chester Campus or Hamel Hall, H204 at the Midlothian Campus. In addition, as supplies last, Tyler libraries can loan laptops, Chromebooks, calculators, webcams and hotspots to currently enrolled students for the entire semester. Students need to complete the form available on the library technology web site to request devices. 

I also want to remind you that student services are currently being offered remotely. Information about those services and other resources may be found at www.jtcc.edu/spring2021. Please note, all students coming on campus MUST follow the College’s safety protocols, which can be found here
If you have questions or need assistance, please email academics@jtcc.edu. On Monday, January 11, we will open our new student information center, which will be accessible at www.jtcc.edu/helphub
