Lifelong Learning & Career Development

The School of Continuing Studies seeks to provide lifelong learning for people of all ages to develop personal and professional potential, upgrade job-related skills and prepare for informed participation in the civic, cultural and political life of the community.

Continuing Studies

The School of Continuing Studies offices are housed at the Regional Training and Development Complex (RTDC) located on Tyler Junior College’s West Campus. The 84,000 square foot RTDC facility offers on-site registration and fee collection, convenient parking and a 300-seat conference room.

The West Campus also houses the Skills Training Center, an innovative, joint project with Tyler Independent School District. The 75,000 square foot Skills Training Center is home to the College’s automotive technology and welding technology departments.

The center and its departments are utilized by area high school students taking part in concurrent enrollment programs, offering the opportunity for college credit prior to high school graduation.

Many of the students continue their studies after graduating, obtaining certification in technical fields to enter into the expanding job market.
