Tuition, Cost & Aid

Affordability and Cost

Average Net Price Average net price for full-time, first-time degree/certificate-seeking undergraduates paying the in-state or in-district tuition rate who were awarded grant or scholarship aid from federal, state or local governments, or the institution. Other sources of grant aid are excluded. Aid awarded anytime during the full aid year is included.

Average net price is generated by subtracting the average amount of federal, state or local government, or institutional grant and scholarship aid from the total cost of attendance. Total cost of attendance is the sum of published tuition and required fees (lower of in-district or in-state), books and supplies and the weighted average room and board and other expenses.

Additional Costs
Room and Board The weighted average for room and board and other expenses is generated as follows:
  • (amount for on-campus room, board and other expenses * # of students living on-campus.
  • + amount for off-campus (with family) room, board and other expenses * # of students living off-campus with family
  • + amount for off-campus (not with family) room, board and other expenses * # of students living off-campus not with family)
divided by the total # of students. Students whose living arrangements are unknown are excluded from the calculation. For some institutions the # of students by living arrangement will be known, but dollar amounts will not be known. In this case the # of students with no corresponding dollar amount will be excluded from the denominator.

What Students Are Saying

3.55 Average Rating
Compared to the local 4 year university, TJC offers the core curriculum for almost 1/3 of the cost. My parents are paying for my education, along with minimal scholarship money, and their advice to take advantage of a top rated Jr. College like TJC was sound. Why end up with thousands in student loans to pay back? TJC will get you started without the debt.

Tuition here is ridiculously affordable, the old saying of college is too expensive is proven false in this school. A full year of tuition is well below 1,500 if you live in within the city, and if you live in the dorms it's roughly 10,000 a year.
Aziel from Tyler, TX
Like I said, TJC has some great teachers. They can be fun and enlightening and can help you on the road to your future. This is true for most of the campuses professors but there are a slight few with whom it is up to you to decide what you take from their courses.
Rachel from Whitehouse, TX
Being a junior college this school is a great way to get ones core classes out of the way for less money than it would cost at a university. The credits at this school also easily transfer to four year universities.
Melody from Sunnyvale, TX
TJC also gives you a lot of Bang For your buck in every aspect like affordable books and supplies. Installment plans were they let you pay for your course a moth at a time and half the cost of tuition compare to University and other colleges.
Josue from New Summerfield, TX
If you are looking for an University, this isn't the place for you. TJC is a good stepping block for you to understand college life; gain new knowledge; create a network of good friends and it will give you the chance to transfer all of that to an actual University where you can expand even further.
