I love making friends, your classes are flexible, your advisor helps you to get your classes and helps you to get your degree requirements met and asks questions in a kind way.

Madison - 07/26/2020

I think Tyler Junior College is a great choice for furthering your education. I chose TJC because it is local and gives me the chance to take quality classes at an affordable cost. Another great thing about TJC is that all the professors I've had here are so kind and really do care about you and want to help in any way they can.

Tommy

I absolutely love TJC, because of my financial situation I chose to go to TJC. After visiting the campus and meeting people around the city, I knew this was going to be the college I was going to go to. I have been at TJC for a year now but with taking summer classes and classes in high school I will be graduating this fall. I'm looking to transferring out to a University after this fall semester, I have been looking into the University of Oklahoma. Honestly I would recommended this college to anybody, it has to be one of the best Junior colleges around with the extra curricular activities and the campus life.

Ryan

Tyler Junior College is an amazing school. Student life is awesome and the teachers are so caring. the work is sometimes difficult though, but being a junior college it certainly feels like a fabulous university. The sporting events are very awesome. Everyone is so pumped up. It makes a great atmostphere.

Tyler Junior College FAQS

  1. What is the Acceptance Rate at Tyler Junior College?

    The fall 2020 acceptance rate for Tyler Junior College is 100%. That means, out of _____ applications received in 2020 , _____ students were offered admission. The number of males who applied was _____ vs the number of females which was _____.

  2. What should every freshman at your school know before they start?

    In high school I was not only involved in everything but also a leader of most of the programs. I was a top student academically so high school is a great memory for me. When graduation came all of my friends went straight out of high school to big time Universities and so my choice to attend a Junior college was something that embarrassed me. Going back and talking to my high school I would remind myself to be proud to be able to attend college and not be embarrassed. I would want to remind myself that a college education is something most people cannot receive for many reasons and that college is a place where you get to live your dreams and become all that you can and not live in the past but use the past to guide my future. Now I know it was the best decision I could have made to attend Tyler Junior College. It is a great school and is something I am now proud of. I will graduate in the spring with my Associates and will then move to a University to continue my education in becoming a Registered Dietitian.

    The worst thing about my school is the classroom settings. I understand its college but if you're a proffessor and you're trying to help teach PLEASE teach me in a correct manner than with a "I Don't Care" attitude. Some of the proffessors or rude which makes me uncomfortable in class because i am going to school to work on getting a degree not to be messing around.

    Tradition and great teachers! getting help from the teachers and staff is so easy and makes you really want to learn! They never leave you "in the dark". The tradition makes me more proud of the school because it makes me feel "at home" and comfortable with the other students and faculty.

    The staff are remarkably nice. I have never encountered an institution that was so cleverly put together with such good people with the best intentions of the students and making them feel welcomed and successful. This, of course, reflects hope on the students who may question hope in succeeding in getting an education or something more personal in their lives.

  10. Describe the students at your school.

    Most of my classmates at Tyler Junior College are definitely up-tight. They don't really talk much and also when you try to to meet up with them for studying or just help in general in class they seem as tho they have better things to do than to be worried about a dumb freshman.

  11. Here's your chance: Say anything about your college!

    What's unique about TJC is it is not overly crowded. Some schools just have too many students and so you do not get to know your professors too well, but at TJC the classes are small and so you can have a good relationship with your professors. This will allow you to not be afraid if you are needing help and if you don't understand the subject.
