Register for Classes

Visit Apache Access to make changes to your TJC account:

  • Students - register for classes, access academic, financial, or residential information.
  • Alumni - request official transcripts and access academic information.

How to Register

1: Apply to TJC

TJC has an open admissions policy, but you'll still need to apply

If you’re already a TJC student, skip to the next step!

2: Clear Holds

If you're a new student, you probably have an advising hold on your account. You'll have to clear the hold before you can register for classes. View your holds in your Apache Access account.

Types of holds:

  • Advising Holds: speak to an Academic Advisor for removal of this hold.
  • Bad Address Hold: Go to the Registrar's office and complete a change of address form for removal of hold.
  • Business Service Hold: money is owed to the college and this hold can only be removed by the Business Service office.
  • Campus Police Hold: Campus Police will need to remove this hold. (This generally means you have a parking ticket.)
  • Financial Aid Hold: Financial Aid will need to remove this hold. If it is an Exit Counseling hold, click on the link below which will take you to the Stafford Exit Counseling page. After completing the Exit Counseling Session, you will need to contact Financial Aid and give them your confirmation number and resubmit your transcript request to the Registrar's office. 
  • Transcript Hold: a high school or college transcript from your previous institution(s) has not been received. In order to lift this hold we must receive the transcript(s) from those listed institutions that have caused the hold. TJC allows for one (1) academic semester of enrollment while waiting on the official transcript(s). However, you will not be able to register for the following semester or obtain a TJC transcript until all transcripts are received.

3: Log into Apache Access

Log into your Apache Access account. On the Home tab, on the left-hand side in the "Quick Links" channel, click the "Register Here" button.

4: Find your classes

Use the Course Search utility to find the courses you need. 

Select the term for which you would like to register. Enter the CRN number for the class, or search for the class by subject. When you find a class you would like to register for, click the check mark box to the left and click the "Register" button.

5: Secure payment for tuition and fees

Pay for your tuition online on your Apache Access account, or at the cashier's office.

Once you've paid for your tuition, you can go to the Campus Police office to obtain your student ID and your parking permit (if you need one).
