1 College Junior

Online Courses: Depending on the professor, these online courses could be a pain. It is hard to interact with other students and hassle to understand the professor's teaching style online.

4 College Junior

Tuition & Financial Aid: As selected previously, the money aspect of the school was very straightforward. You could even pay it online easily with a debit or credit card. Sometimes the Financial Aide office aides were a little rude, but most of the time they were quite charming. Any tips? Just find all the information you need. It's all there on the website, and the people at the Office are always willing to help.

3 College Junior

Campus Resources: The labs are pretty nice. There aren't always all the resources that we need, but for a community college, it's pretty great. We always had all of the resources for the labs that we were doing. And the Writing Center and the Student Success Center, both full of tutors for students, were quite useful. They weren't as well publicized as they could have been, though.

3 College Junior

Campus Resources: There are tons of computer labs at the school, as well as an abundance of computers in the library. Printing does get a little dicey sometimes, as it is free sometimes and not free other times. And the new printing system set up at the library in Spring 2014 only served to baffle students.

1 College Student

Overall Experience: I did not enjoy my time at John Tyler.

3 College Student

Facilities: Overall, John Tyler is just an okay school in all areas. Considering the facilities, the library is really nice, but that's about it,

3 College Student

Student Body: I don't get to know many people here. I go to school and then go straight home.

3 College Student

Tuition & Financial Aid: While John Tyler is cost effective, I really don't think I am getting my money's worth with the professors and course materials required in order to complete the class.

3 College Student

Academic Flexibility: Depends on the class. Some of my weaker professors have loaded me with hours on hours of busy work while other professors give me a reasonable amount of homework with a purpose behind it to help me prepare for exams. It's frustrating signing up for classes because the amount in the classroom is limited.

College Student

Online Courses: I have never had an online course

College Student

Career Services: I have not looked into a post-grad service at John Tyler because I don't plan to finish my studies here.

2 College Student

Academic Experience: I cannot go far here at John Tyler with my major. They only offer a limited amount of courses and soon I am going to have to transfer.

1 College Student

Academic Experience: The professors at John Tyler are awful. Well, MOST of them. The professors do not know how to effectively teach their subject. It's bad to the point where I have to teach myself and go to outside sources to learn the information in order to pass the exams. Given, this does not pertain to ALL professors who are employed at John Tyler. You would expect to go to a college to learn from a graduated, well taught professor who knows the subject like the back of their hand. That's not what they have at John Tyler from my experience here.

3 College Student

Campus Resources: I attend John Tyler in order to get an education. I do not attend anything extracurricular. However, the facilities are nice and well kept. I do go to the library when I have time in-between classes to waste and it is very nice and easy to focus. The librarians are a joy and are very helpful.

4 College Student

Campus Resources: Sometimes the computer networks are faulty, but most of the time they work well.

5 College Sophomore

5 College Sophomore

Online Courses: I took an online class and was surprised how it was just like being in an actual class just minus the people

5 College Sophomore

Facilities: Their are tons of clubs to joins and lots of fun hang out spots

5 College Sophomore

Tuition & Financial Aid: I have no problem with it at all. I always have enough to pay for all my classes and the prices are great and affordable.

4 College Sophomore

Student Body: John Tyler has a higher white ethnic group than any other but you still see a mix of everyone there. Acceptance isn't hard because we are a community college so most people are there straight out of high school or working parents.
