Requirements for On-Campus Housing
To be eligible to live in on-campus housing, students must meet the following requirements:
1) Hours: Students must be enrolled full time in classes at TJC for at least 12 hours per semester, six of which must be college-level course work (“full-time status”). A student not enrolled in classes cannot remain in a residence hall. If a student drops classes causing them to fall below full-time status, they must inform the Residential Life & Housing Office and request a written waiver to continue living in a residence hall. The waiver may be granted at the sole discretion of the Residential Life & Housing Department. If such a waiver is not requested or is not granted, the student will not remain in the residence hall.
2) GPA: To be eligible to live in a TJC residence hall, the student must remain in good academic standing with TJC. A first-year student must generally have a minimum cumulative GPA of 1.5, and a returning student must generally have a minimum cumulative GPA of 2.0. However, at its sole discretion, the Residential Life & Housing Department may grant exceptions to these GPA requirements if the student has no conduct issues and has abided by housing rules/policies. If the student is placed on any type of academic probation or suspension, this will be reviewed on a case-by-case basis at the Residential Life & Housing Department’s sole discretion, and the student may be required to leave TJC housing within 72 hours of notice.
3) Age: A student must be at least 17 years old as of the first day of the Contract Period to be eligible to live in a TJC residence hall. In minimal circumstances, the Residential Life & Housing Office may, in its sole discretion, grant an exception to this minimum age requirement for a good cause shown.
4) Criminal History/Discipline: Students must have an acceptable criminal background check. Registered sex offenders are not permitted to live in — or be within the living areas of — a residence hall. A student who has been removed from a residence hall due to housing disciplinary action is not eligible to live in on-campus housing.
