The Advising Centers
The Advising Office is currently helping new and current students prepare and register for fall semester classes. All student services continue to be offered remotely, and new and current students are encouraged to access these services from off campus. Starting August 10, John Tyler Community College will begin providing limited on-campus assistance for students who are unable to access services remotely.
To connect with staff remotely, email firstname.lastname@example.org or call 804-706-5224 for the Chester office and 804-594-1558. You can also contact advising through Navigate, available in the myTyler portal. Staff are available virtually from 10 am to 5 pm. Emails and phone messages will receive a response within 24 hours.
Staff will be available to assist students in-person at the Chester and Midlothian campuses at the following dates and times:
August 10–13: 12–7 pm
August 17–20: 12–7 pm
August 21: 8 am–5 pm
Students should check in at the table in front of the Advising Center when they arrive and they will be assigned an appointment slot. Only one student will be allowed in each in-person appointment; family members and guests will be asked to wait outside the building. Each session should be approximately 30 minutes. Students can bring unofficial transcripts to their appointment for advising purposes. All visitors must follow Tyler's safety protocols on campus.
