To see if you are eligible for financial aid, complete a Free Application for Federal Student Aid (FAFSA) at www.fafsa.ed.gov using Tyler’s FAFSA code: 004004.

Veterans, active members of the U.S. military and their dependents may also be eligible for Veterans Education Benefits. Learn more at www.jtcc.edu/veterans.
- Take placement test.
Placement tests help us evaluate which math and English courses will be most beneficial to you.
There is no fee, and you do not need an appointment. Students must present their student ID number and a photo ID when they arrive to take the placement tests.
- If you have taken SATs in the past two years, your scores may exempt you from placement tests. If you have a score of 500 or higher on the Reading and the Writing tests and 520 or higher on the Math test, you do not have to take placement tests.
