Out of State Licensure and Certification
Tyler has entered into a regional reciprocity agreement through NC-SARA to accept out-of-state students (except for students residing in California) in our online programs and courses.
Tyler's Student Grievance Policy and Procedure is described in our catalog. Tyler strives to provide the highest quality educational opportunities available. However, if a conflict does arise, our efforts are meant to resolve your grievances, complaints, and concerns in an expeditious, fair, and amicable manner. Students should follow carefully the steps outlined in our catalog to ensure proper and timely resolution of their complaint. Complaints must follow the college's customary resolution procedure prior to being referred to SCHEV.
The information listed below is intended to provide students residing outside the state of Virginia who may be enrolled in a program at John Tyler Community College that prepares students for external certification or licensure with contact information for state boards and licensing agencies.
