Tyler Junior College to reach out to Lon Morris students for summer study

Posted: Updated:

Released by Tyler Junior College

TYLER -- Tyler Junior College will send a registration team to Jacksonville to help students of Lon Morris College register for core curriculum classes through TJC while they await word on the restoration of classes at Lon Morris.

TJC will also offer discounted, on-campus housing at its Main campus in Tyler for students requiring a residence hall during their studies.

Core curriculum courses are basic courses designed to transfer to other state-assisted colleges and universities.

Lon Morris College announced the furlough of most of its employees and an interruption in college courses and services earlier this week due to financial constraints. With the exception of distance education courses, Lon Morris canceled its regular summer course offerings.

"We want to help ensure that these students have the opportunity to continue on a smooth pathway toward their educational goals," said TJC President Dr. Mike Metke. "We know these students will wish to continue at Lon Morris when classes resume, but extending our summer classes to them will help them stay on track."

Representatives from TJC residential life, the registrar's office and financial aid will be available in Jacksonville to assist Lon Morris students from 10 a.m. until 3 p.m. on Friday, June 1.

Lon Morris students should come to the TJC-Jacksonville site, on the fourth floor of East Texas Medical Center, Jacksonville, 501 S. Ragsdale. Students are asked to bring their Lon Morris identification card and a current printed transcript, if available.

Summer I term classes at TJC begin June 4; the Summer II term begins July 9.
