Welcome to TJC Academic Advising!

Notice for Spring 2015 Advising process and Advisor locations:

16 week and 1st 8-week classes started January 19th. At this point you may consider 12 week courses that start February 15 and 2nd 8 week courses start March 21st.

If you have a new student Advising Hold or one for TSI or <24 hours you must be advised before the hold can be lifted for registration.  Students needing 150% degree audits or academic plans for financial aid suspension must see an Academic Advisor.

Academic Advisors are divided into three teams. See names, locations and contact information listed below. You may click on the appropriate Academic School link to see which majors are advised by a particular Advisor.  

  • Please always call ahead at 903-510-2425, 2662, or 2347 to verify Academic Advisor availability when walking in, especially if traveling from a distance.  
  • Complete all admissions and testing requirements before seeking advisement. Test scores for placement must be available unless exemptions are met or previous college credit meets required prerequisites. 
  • A government issued photo ID or TJC ID is always required when seeing an Academic Advisor in our centers or during advising/registration events.  

Regular Office Hours: 8:00 a.m. - 5:00 p.m., Monday-Friday

  • Advisors are available by walk-in visit or appointment during non-peak registration times, Monday-Thursday, 8 am-5 pm.; Friday, 8 am-3 pm or until advising opportunities are full.

  • We have two Advising Centers: Rogers Student Center, 2nd floor and Pirtle Technology, Room 202

    Due to privacy concerns covered by FERPA, we do not advise by phone.  

  • When e-mailing an Advisor for information if you are a fully online student or live more than 50 miles from TJC, please: 

    • Use your TJC e-mail address in Apache Access that was assigned upon acceptance to TJC.
    • Include your Name, A# and major/career interest and questions in the body of your e-mail. Advisement by email is limited because of privacy rules covered by FERPA so we must be able to verify you are the student. Please allow a minimum of 24-48 hours for a response as Advisors are assisting students with appointments and as walk-ins.

    If you wish us to be able to speak to a parent or someone else about your school business you must sign a FERPA waiver form in Apache Access under TJC eForms (Doc e Fill) and include their name(s). This will be kept on file and may be cancelled in the Registrar's office any time.

    Please call the appropriate advising office listed below, especially if traveling from an hour or more , to:

    • Verify if TJC and the advising office is open;
    • Verify if appointments are available to meet your needs;
    • Find out when the Academic Advisor for your major has walk in days; or,
    • Find out when walk in advising/registration sessions are available.
