Home-schooled Student or Graduate
John Tyler Community College is pleased to offer home-schooled students ways to supplement their home-school curriculums or begin their college careers.
If you have completed your home schooling and have the equivalent of a high school diploma, you should follow the admissions instructions for either new student seeking a degree or certificate or new student not seeking a degree or certificate, as appropriate.
If you are still taking courses as a part of a home-school curriculum and would like to be concurrently enrolled at JTCC you will need to do the following:
- Familiarize yourself with the important dates and deadlines for admission.
- Meet with the dean of students.
Before you apply to the College, all home schooled students, regardless of age, and their parent or guardian must schedule an appointment by emailing the dean of student’s administrative assistant at firstname.lastname@example.org. At the meeting, you'll need to provide documentation indicating authorization from the responsible jurisdiction permitting you to engage in home schooling. Your parent or guardian must also provide Tyler with written permission for you to enroll at Tyler.
- Apply online or pick up an Application for Admission.
- Schedule your placement tests.
John Tyler Community College generally requires placement tests in English and mathematics for all new concurrently enrolled students.
Eligible SAT, ACT or PSAT scores may also be used for placement purposes. You can find out more about testing requirements as well as testing dates and times on our Testing Centers page.
- Visit the Advising Center (no appointment necessary).
Once you are approved by the Dean of Students to enroll at JTCC visit the Advising Center. During your meeting, a member of the counseling staff will help with your initial registration for classes. Please note that concurrently enrolled students cannot enroll online.
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 www.jtcc.edu/tuition. 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 have not declared a major are not eligible for financial aid.
