General Information Regarding the HITT Program

Applying to the Program

A student must be TSI complete in Reading and Writing to apply to the program. Can be working on the Math and must complete the Math in order to take BIOL 2402.

If a student is not TSI complete in Math by the time the student enters the program the student must take the math in the fall or spring semester.

A student can only apply in the Spring semester, deadline at the end of May. Will accept late applications depending on availability.

If wanting to transfer from another CAHIIM Accredited HIT Program please contact the Program Coordinator upon interest of transferring to the program. TJC HIT Program does require a letter of good standing from the previous HIT Program in order to transfer to the program at TJC.

Students may stretch the program to three years.

The Health Information Technology Program does require the students to attend clinical sites(health care facilities).

You are responsible for traveling to sites for these rotations. Please be aware that you may be required to travel outside of the East Texas area for your site visits. We use sites in Dallas, Lufkin, Shreveport, etc.

For students not living in the East Texas area, the clinical coordinator relies on the student to assist the coordinator in locating sites in your area for clinical rotations.

You may refer to the Cost and Fees section to see some of the costs incurred with the clinical rotations.
