PJC Board of Regents approve 2018-2019 budget

Published or Revised September 09, 2018

The 2018-2019 Paris Junior College budget shows an increase from the previous year, due to a projected increase in the federal financial aid pass-through, the Board of Regents learned Monday evening, August 27, 2018 during discussion. They gave final approval to a budget totaling $34,543,871.

“We anticipate more Pell grants to students, and that is the major increase over last year’s budget,” said PJC President Dr. Pam Anglin.
