The Housing application is found on Apache Access. Housing assignments are made based on the date the completed on-line Housing application is received in the Residential Life and Housing Department. Applying and completing your Housing file early improves the possibility of getting a room on campus. There is a $100 one-time, non-refundable Application Processing fee. This fee can not be paid by Financial Aid or Scholarships.

For all Applicants --- to be considered for placement in a Residence Hall:

  1. Be admitted to Tyler Junior College through the Admissions Office and receive an A-number from Admissions.
  2. After receiving the A-number, wait 48 hours then complete and submit a separate on-line Housing application which is found on Apache Access.
  3. Complete and submit the Background Check form found on Apache Access. The form can be downloaded, completed, signed, and uploaded to become part of your Housing application file. NOTE: A background check is processed for all students applying to live on-campus.
  4. Pay the $100 one-time non-refundable Application Processing fee. The fee can be paid on-line as an application step or by contacting the TJC Cashier's office at 903-510-2672. 
  5. Submit proof of receiving a meningitis vaccination (MCV4) to the TJC Admissions office. Without the vaccine, you CANNOT enter college.
  6. When a room assignment is made, the room and mandatory meal plan charges are placed on the student's account. Charges are on a per semester basis. Before a student can move into a Residence Hall the charges must be paid in full or arrangements to pay must have been made.
