Housing Application Process

NEW STUDENTS: The Application for 2016-2017 HOUSING opened October 31, 2015


Housing applications received on or after March 1, 2016 are automatically put on a Placement Waiting List

CURRENT RESIDENTS: Room selection for 20160-2017 was done March 28 - April 7.

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 for 1st time applicants. 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. 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.
