The School of Continuing Studies seeks to provide lifelong learning for people of all ages to develop personal and professional potential, upgrade job-related skills and prepare for informed participation in the civic, cultural and political life of the community.
All incoming freshman will be subject to a background check at the time of placement or room assignment; and in late summer before their respective arrival on campus for the fall semester.
Returning residents will be subject to a background check when they renew their housing contracts in the spring semester for the following fall semester. These background checks will be run in late summer before the residents return to campus for the fall semester.
Semester Credit Hour Requirements:
All residents are required to maintain full-time student status – enrolled in at least 12 semester credit hours of study throughout each semester.
Of the 12 semester credit hours, 6 semester credit hours must be college level course work.
Dropping below 12 semester credit hours in a semester may be grounds to be removed from a residence hall.
Academic GPA Requirements:
Cumulative GPA reports will include the grades earned in developmental course work.
At the end of each semester, those residents with a cumulative GPA below a 1.5 will be denied housing for the next semester.
At the end of each semester, those residents with a cumulative GPA between 1.5 and 2.0 will be notified by letter and email that they are on Housing Academic Probation and will need to participate in the “Bounce Back” housing academic program. These residents must raise their cumulative GPA to a 2.0 to be eligible for housing the next semester.
Current TJC students applying for housing will be subject to verification of their cumulative GPA. If the applicant has a cumulative GPA below a 1.5, housing will be denied. If the applicant has a cumulative GPA between 1.5 and 2.0 they will enter on a Housing Academic Probation status.
