CHESTER and MIDLOTHIAN, Va. – John Tyler Community College students juggling busy work, family and college schedules now have a new option when it comes to planning their classes. It’s called Full-Time Fridays, and it allows students to earn up to 15 hours of general education credits by coming to campus only on Fridays. These classes cover a variety of subjects from biology and history to English and math. Most Full-Time Friday classes are hybrid courses; they blend online and on-campus instruction. So, for most of them, you’ll come to campus for an hour and fifteen minutes once a week and then do the rest of your classwork online. You can sign up for one to five Full-Time Friday classes; it’s up to you and your schedule. For a list of all the Full-Time Friday classes being offered during the Fall 2011 semester, go to www.jtcc.edu/schedule. You can also learn more by watching our video about Full-Time Fridays at www.youtube.com/johntylercommcollege.
Students may sign up for Full-Time Friday classes and all John Tyler courses during the College’s general registration period, which runs July 11 through August 19, 2011. A complete list of all classes may be found at www.jtcc.edu/schedule. Students already enrolled at the College may register online using the Student Information System found at www.jtcc.edu/myTyler. They also may register in person at either the Chester Campus, located at 13101 Jefferson Davis Highway, or the Midlothian Campus, located at 800 Charter Colony Parkway.
