Outside Agency Scholarships
Many students receive scholarships from local, state or national organizations to help pay for the cost of college. These organizations usually require scholarship funds be sent directly to the university or college.
Sending scholarship funds to TJC
- Recipients, please provide the Outside Scholarship Form (found in our related downloads) to your donor OR
- The donor can mail your scholarship check, made payable to Tyler Junior College, and a cover letter to:
Tyler Junior College
PO Box 9020
Tyler, TX 75711
The cover letter should include your name and TJC student ID or social security number and any instructions for disbursement. It is also helpful to have your name and TJC student ID or social security number in the memo section of the check. Some donors send checks co-payable to you and Tyler Junior College. In this event, you will need to go to the Scholarship Office to endorse your check before it can be applied to your student account. Checks made payable to Tyler Junior College on your behalf will allow us to process your scholarship funds more quickly.
Most donors will accept a print out of your class schedule or billing statement which you will be given upon class registration or will be available on Apache Access. If a donor requires something sent directly from the College, contact the Scholarship Office, White Administrative Services Center, (903) 510-3234, or email us at firstname.lastname@example.org with the address of the donor and your name and TJC student ID or social security number.
Disbursement of scholarship funds
Scholarship funds will be placed on your student account and can be viewed on Apache Access by selecting Financial Aid under the Quick Links menu of the home page. All scholarships will be disbursed according to the guidelines received from the awarding organization. If there are no guidelines, funds will be applied to your tuition and fees, housing, meals and books in that order. If you are allowed to receive any remaining scholarship funds, those funds will be disbursed to your Higher One account when funds are released to the students. If funds are not allowed to be released, they will be moved to the next semester or returned to the awarding organization.
