New Student Not Seeking a Degree

Below are the steps new students who are not interested in earning a degree or certificate need to take to get started at John Tyler.

  1. Familiarize yourself with the important dates and deadlines for admission.

  2. Apply online or pick up an Application for Admission.

  3. Schedule your courses and register.

    Explore our course schedule and decide which classes you would like to take. Once you know, register for your classes online using myTyler. Please note that even if you do not intend to enter a degree program, it is still your responsibility to satisfy all course and placement testing requirements prior to enrolling in courses with specific prerequisites. Additional information on course prerequisites can be found in our current course schedule. You can find out more about testing requirements as well as testing dates and times on our Testing Centers page.
  4. Pay your tuition and fees.

    John Tyler Community College does not generate bills for tuition and fees. It is your responsibility to make sure you pay your tuition and fees by the deadlines listed at If you do not pay all tuition and fees by the appropriate date, you may lose some or all of your classes,referred to as having your classes “dropped.”

    You must pay all mandatory fees – student activity fee, technology fee and student parking fee at the same time. Partial payments (for example, paying for one class out of several classes or only paying a fractional amount of one class) are not sufficient to hold all classes.

    Tuition and fee payments may be made online through myTyler using a credit card.  Payments can also be made in person via check, cash, or credit card at the Business Office located in Room A102 in Goyne Hall in Chester or Room B115 in the Administration Building in Midlothian. Please note that students who are not curriculum-placed and seeking a degree or certificate are not eligible for financial aid.

  5. Purchase your textbooks.

    Textbooks for John Tyler Community College are available through .
