New Student Orientation is an introduction to the academic and campus life at TJC. 

Orientation will introduce students to:

  • Academic programs, student support and academic resources, and student life
  • Financial Aid, scholarships and ways to pay for college
  • Academic Advising & enrolling in classes

We’re excited about your decision to join the TJC family!

Parent NSO

Families & Parents

College is a great opportunity for students to become more self-sufficient. It is also a great opportunity for parents to continue to offer their advice and wisdom while allowing their student to create their own path.

We are thankful to have the support of parents and family members and we recognize how significant each of these individuals are in the lives of our students. We are happy to offer orientation programming for parents and family members.
