Apache Parents, Apache Proud!
Tyler Junior College embraces parents and families as essential and important components of the TJC community. The mission of the Apache Parents and the Tyler Junior College Parent and Family Association has been to support the needs of students and their parents. Our goals are to keep parents informed, create positive ways for parents to be involved with the College and to act as a liaison between parents/families and the TJC administration, offices and departments.
We serve the parents and families of all TJC students. By sponsoring such activities as Parents Weekend and Family Orientation, Apache Parents provides opportunities for parents and family members to meet TJC administrators and faculty, socialize with other parents and actively participate in their Apaches’ lives on campus.
The TJC Parent and Family Association provides student scholarships, gives awards for outstanding teaching and research, recognizes TJC staff members who significantly enhance the experience of the student body and offers financial support to the Office of the Vice President for Student Affairs and student programs, events and initiatives.

A Note From the Office...
We are so happy to have your student at Tyler Junior College! As the parent or family member of a college student you may be looking for ways to ensure their success. We share that common goal and would like your support on campus. We believe establishing a relationship with parents and family members is an important component of a successful college experience for TJC students. We value you as a partner in your student’s educational process.
Please enjoy our website designed specifically for the parent of a college student. Look for the Parent Partners newsletter twice a semester for important updates and new ways to become involved. We want to ensure that you have the information to connect you to valuable announcements, events, resources and services which facilitate your involvement in the life of your student. You can also like Tyler Junior College Apache Parents on Facebook for updates!
Feel free to call, email or stop by my office, 2nd floor Rogers Student Center, with any questions or concerns.
