Lanyard Policy

Students and employees are required to have their TJC-issued ID on their person while on campus.  Visitors are always welcome at our facilities, and we want to treat them with respect and be helpful while they are here. 

Any member of the TJC community may respectfully ask individuals to present their ID in accordance with TJC Board Policy and the Texas Education Code.  Non-compliance, when appropriate, will be reported to the Office of Student Conduct or Human Resources.

What are the specific guidelines for wearing the ID/lanyard?

  1. Students who do not have their ID/lanyards may pick up a Day Pass at Campus Police. Employees may obtain a Day Lanyard from their respective Dean’s or Director’s office.
  2. If a Day Pass is needed more than once per semester, students should go first to the Cashier’s Office on the first floor of WASC to pay $2.50, then take the receipt to Campus Police to pick up the Day Pass.

Why should I comply?

Per Board Policy and the Texas Education Code, students and employees must present their TJC ID card when asked by a college official. The ID card is necessary for admission to College activities, computer labs, OHPE Center, use of learning resources, at the Testing Center and other campus facilities and functions.

Failure to properly display your TJC ID when asked may result in disciplinary action. 

The TJC Identification (ID) card is the property of Tyler Junior College and must be surrendered upon demand if requested by a Tyler Junior College official.
