CHESTER and MIDLOTHIAN, Va. – Options abound for students who sign up for fall classes at John Tyler Community College (JTCC). Not only is the College offering courses in a wide variety of subjects, it also is giving students more scheduling choices. Starting with the Fall 2012 semester, JTCC is adding 7:00 a.m. classes to its daytime schedule, covering subjects such as English, math, history and sociology. This new class time will give students additional flexibility when trying to balance school, work and family. In addition, JTCC’s fall offerings include evening and weekend courses, as well as an abundance of online courses, which allow students to interact with their instructor and conduct their classwork over the internet, and hybrid courses, which are taught partially online and partially in the classroom. The College continues to offer Full-Time Fridays, which give students the opportunity to earn up to 15 hours of general education credits by coming to campus only on Fridays. And, for those who are not able to attend classes for the full semester, there are courses offered during 8-week sessions or during shorter time periods (known as dynamically dated).
Exploring these class options is easier than ever, thanks to the College’s new web site redesign. A complete list of fall classes may be found at http://www.jtcc.edu/schedule. On that page, students may look at the entire list of classes or sort classes by subject, location (campus or online), session, or days of the week.
