John Tyler Community College Reviews
The teachers here (if you do your research before registration) are amazing! The classes are fairly straightforward and the curriculum is standardized across VCCS so everything goes smoothly. VCCS recently switched to Canvas and has had a plethora of technical issues. But the proactive teachers clear things up and are very proficient when it comes to making sure students receive adequate communication. Advising can be good or bad. All of the advisors believe in you, but not all of them actually understand their job and requirements for the academic programs. But if you end up choosing the right advisor (note: you can see any advisor at any time regardless of your assigned advisor), you will be pushed and cared for and properly guided through the community college process. As long as you put in the work, you’ll be golden.
I love John Tyler! This is my second year attending and my experience has been amazing. The professors are friendly, intelligent, helpful, and fun. They have no problem helping their students with anything. I feel completely comfortable talking to all of the staff. I always feel safe thanks to the great security that are always around. To include, the services JTCC offers are also great. The ARC helps students with their work in various subjects. I have not had a bad experience with the ARC, and the tutors are very friendly. They provide honest feedback and have patience. The clubs are fun and there is always something to do. I recommend JTCC to any student determined to have a great career and future without the endless stress.
John Tyler is a very affordable college. I think what I loved so much was that most of my teachers took the time to learn my name. They didn't pass around a roll sheet but would call my name. Many of my professors also were willing to help out in any way they could, whether that be staying for tutoring, writing letters of recommendation, talking about assignments, etc. They were there with a listening ear and tons of advice. I also loved the people at the library! Their endless patience and knack of answering questions made them some od the most helpful people at the school!
