About TJC

Tyler Junior College in Tyler, Texas offers both practical, career-oriented degree programs and a practical approach to academics.

For convenience, many of Tyler’s courses are offered online, on video, and in the standard classroom format.

Associate’s degrees are awarded in Art, Communications, Math, Music, Sociology, Theatre and others. Since most of these majors don’t offer practical career training, Tyler also allows its Liberal Arts and Science majors to pursue a second major in a Technical or Allied Health field.

Technical and Allied Health majors include Diagnostic Medical Sonography, Human Services, Nursing, Physical Therapy Assistance, Fire Protection Technology and Paralegal Studies.

To give students the chance to pursue additional interests, Tyler houses various student life opportunities including special interest, religious and academic student organizations, a school newspaper, a school band and community service activities.

Admission is open to anyone with a high school diploma or GED, though high school students may also apply for a special early entry program.

Financial aid is awarded to qualifying students who need help paying for tuition.

Overall Rating

Tyler Junior College is a great school. What I like most is, there is always some type of exciting event taking place. One of my most memorable experiences at TJC was about a year ago. There was a TCJ cook off and many people attended. I was worried about how the security would be, however, I should not of been. I saw all the campus safety police, and I immediately was able to let me guards down and have a great time as everyone else did. There were many different organizations there recruiting more apaches to jump on board, and the food was awesome.


Overall Rating

I like tjc because u can transfer your classes easily without any difficulty. Whatsoever, its located in the tyler so you can enjoy the city along with your classes. Most faculties are friendly and willing to help you with classes. They have dormitories on campus so its easy to commute if you don't drive.
