PJC Regents leave tuition unchanged

Published or Revised March 07, 2018

Tuition and fees for the 2018-2019 Paris Junior College academic year will remain unchanged, the PJC Board of Regents decided at their meeting Monday evening.

“We looked at the average tuition rates in the state of Texas and those of our surrounding colleges,” said PJC President Dr. Pam Anglin. “We recommend you do not increase tuition.”

A comparison report drawn from the Integrated Postsecondary Education Data System was provided the regents. The survey collects data from 7,000 institutions annually. For the report, PJC was compared with 22 other colleges that are ranked as medium-sized out of the 50 in the state of Texas.

According to the report, PJC has a far higher graduation rate than peer colleges while PJC full time equivalent staffing is lower than peers. PJC has 84 percent of students on some form of financial aid, compared to peers with 66 percent. Sixty-four percent of PJC students are on PELL compared to 47 percent at peer institutions.
