Living on Campus
Tyler Junior College is pleased to offer a limited number of Residential Halls on the main TJC campus. The online Housing application can be found on Apache Access and is separate from the TJC Admissions application. You must have a Student ID, or A-number, from the TJC Admissions office before you can sign-in on the Apache Access site to complete the Housing application.
Fall 2014 Priority Placement DEADLINE: March 1, 2014
Applicants who have a complete Housing file prior to March 1, 2014 will be placed during March. Fall 2014 Housing applications received on or after March 1, 2014 will automatically be put on a Placement Waiting List. Because of the Waiting List status, applicants applying on or after March 1, 2014 can delay payment of the $100 non-refundable application processing fee. Placements from the Waiting List have 10 days after placement to pay the $100 non-refundable application processing fee. If payment is not received, the assigment will be cancelled and another applicant will be assigned to the room.
No applicants can use Financial Aid or Scholarships to pay the application processing fee. The $100 fee does not guarantee a space in a Hall and is non-refundable.
Applicants must have a completed Housing file before being considered for placement. A file is complete when you have:
- Submitted a completed Housing application (found in Apache Access)
- Paid the $100 application processing fee, if applying before March 1, 2014
- Submitted a completed Background Check Form (found in Apache Access)
- Submitted Bacterial Meningitis Vaccination documentation to Admissions
Priority for placement is determined by the date/time the Housing application is submitted to the Housing office by clicking the Apache Access application "Submit" button.
Housing applications are accepted year-round. Freshmen are not required to live on campus and current residents always have first priority for space in the Residence Halls. Completing the Housing application process does not guarantee a residential space on campus.
