In light of Gov. Greg Abbott’s executive order to close schools through April 3, Tyler Junior College has announced plans to move many courses to an online format.

All face-to-face and hybrid courses will be moved to online only with a tentative return to campus on April 6. Students will be receiving more information from their instructors, according to the college’s announcement.

Online second eight-week and Healthcare Technology Medical Systems courses will continue as planned. Online 16- and 12-week courses will resume as planned on Monday. Residence halls are tentatively scheduled to reopen April 5.

TJC will extend the date to drop classes to April 29, which will also apply to the college’s dual credit students.

“The current health crisis situation is being monitored on a daily basis, and these plans are subject to change based on information provided by local, state and national authorities, with the continued focus of educational continuity and community well-being,” the statement read.
