Contact an Advisor

Academic advisors are organized by academic pathways. All advisors are trained to advise for all student affinity groups, general studies, and undecided majors.

Flexible advising options available in person, phone, Zoom, and at registration events

Advising appointments are available during the following times:

  • Monday through Wednesday, from 8 a.m. to 5 p.m.
  • Thursday from 8 a.m. to 7 p.m
  • Friday from 8 a.m. to 5 p.m.
  • Walk-ins without appointments are welcome!
  • Select an appointment preference by going to the TJC Advising Appointment Scheduler to schedule a Zoom advising appointment (Note that first time TJC students should see an academic advisor in person if possible). If not, then only Zoom appointments should be scheduled as proper academic advising requires visuals or demonstrating student information, support services, and degree plans. Phone appointments should be reserved for basic questions and general help for current students only. New TJC students scheduling appointments without having completed the TSI or meeting exemptions may have their appointments canceled as advising cannot assist with the registration of courses without the TSI exam and exemption evidence. Zoom or phone appointments are limited to TJC students only.
  • For general questions, please text advising at 903-231-7121. This option is recommended for the fastest service and is regularly monitored by advising staff seven days per week. You can also email advising at TJCAdvising@tjc.edu
