How to Register

Step 1: Sign in to your TJCTC profile using your username and password.

Guestroom Options

TJCTC will book your room reservation. There are four guestroom options available to you at the time of registration for each event. 
1. Double Occupancy with Participant
  • This option means that you will be paired up with another TJCTC attendee in the same room.
  • Sharing a room with another participant will be at no cost to you. However, if your roommate does not show up, you will be responsible for paying one half of the room rate plus tax if TJCTC is not notified immediately.
  • Select an attendee from the drop down menu or type their name into the Special Needs box provided. If you do not have a specific person in mind, choose the “Any” option from the drop down menu and a same-sex roommate will be assigned to you at the time of check-in. 
2. Single Occupancy/Share with Spouse
  • This is the single, private room option. 
  • You (the attendee) will pay TJCTC $55 per night, payable by check or money order. 
3. No Room Available
  • If a room option is not available, please select this option and indicate your room preference in the Special Needs box provided. 
4. I Do Not Need a Room
  • Select this option if you live within 30 miles of the seminar location and can drive in each morning to attend. 

Hotel Information


The Training Center will book all hotel reservations for the event based on the information provided at registration.

If you would like additional room nights outside of the seminar dates, please contact the Training Center as soon possible. Additional room nights will be at the expense of the individual and at the best available rate. The contracted group rate is not guaranteed for any additional nights.

Payment Information

In order to keep our events at capacity and give everyone enough time to request funds, we are now requesting the registration fee three months prior to an event. 
The registration fee and hotel room payment due dates will be listed on your invoice. You can access your invoice by logging into your TJCTC Profile, and clicking Invoices and Receipts. If payment will not be received by the invoiced due date, you must contact the Training Center in order to avoid an event cancellation.

After the payment is received, you will be sent a confirmation email with hotel and event details.

*Pursuant to the Grant Conditions, the registration fee is mandatory and is returned to the Grant to be spent as restricted funds. The Texas State University Overhead Assessment is used for activity expenses that the Grant cannot cover, such as excess meal and break costs, among other items and are unrestricted funds deposited in a TSU account. Counties or individuals who may have trouble paying the registration fee may request a waiver.*

Attendance and Cancellation Policies

Attendance Policy

It is the policy of TJCTC that each participant who attends any event paid for by grant funding must attend each training hour for that event. Individuals who fail to complete all training hours will not receive any credit hours and will be responsible for all associated costs. Individuals will not be allowed to attend any other sponsored TJCTC event until all financial charges have been paid. 

Cancellations and Refunds

In order to receive a full refund, cancellations must be done online through your TJCTC Profile and received two weeks prior to the event start date. Please allow 30 business days to process any refunds. 
Cancellations received within two weeks of an event, must be emailed to our Registrar, Laura Villarreal, at No refunds or credits will be given for no shows, late arrivals or early departures. Failure to communicate an event cancellation will result in a no show status. 

No Shows

In fairness to all attendees, confirmed participants who do not attend their scheduled seminar, leave early, or fail to cancel their registration, will not be eligible for a refund. Any Court Personnel who no shows at a 16-hour seminar will be suspended from all events sponsored by TJCTC for the current and following academic years.

Substitutions and Transfers

TJCTC will allow substitutions or transfers under certain conditions for event registration. Registration fees can be transferred to another person already registered or you can substitute an existing registration to another participant for that specific event. Please notify our Registrar, Laura Villarreal, in writing at to request a transfer or substitution of registration

Waiting Lists

A waiting list is available online for attendees who are waiting to register for an event that is full.  If the event you wish to register for appears in red, this means the event is at capacity. You can only add yourself to one waiting list at a time.
Attendees on a waiting list will be notified via email when spaces become available. An attendee on a waiting list is not officially registered for that event until they are notified. It is the responsibility of the attendee to check the status of the waiting list. If you wish to remove yourself from a waiting list, you can do so through your TJCTC Profile
