Study shows PJC graduates higher percentage of students than peers

The Paris Junior College Board of Regents received good news about PJC’s continued value in comparison to 22 other medium-sized Texas Colleges. The report shows that the graduation rate at PJC is much higher than the average, validating the college’s years of work to improve student success and completion.

The Integrated Postsecondary Education Data System (IPEDS) also showed PJC again outperforms peer colleges in cost of attendance and graduation and transfer rates. Cost of attending PJC for an academic year, including tuition and fees, is $1,548 compared to the average of $2,221.

Reflecting regional demographics, more PJC students (86 percent) are on some form of financial aid compared to the average of 68 percent, and more use PELL grants (69 percent) compared to the average of 47 percent.

PJC also demonstrates greater efficiency, with less spent on full time employees in core expense categories than peers in instruction ($3,785 to $5,155), academic support ($535 to $931) and institutional support ($1,084 to $1,959).
