PJC still good value with fewer fees and increased tuition

Published or Revised January 11, 2017

A comparative study done through the Integrated Postsecondary Education Data System (IPEDS) with 22 other medium size Texas colleges shows that Paris Junior College continues to be an excellent value. The PJC Board of Regents received this report as they streamlined fees and increased tuition for the 2016-2017 academic year.

A $30 per course Internet fee was done away with, and $7 per semester credit hour was added to the general fee. Approved tuition increases (all per credit hour) will be: in-district from $50 to $55, out-of-district from $86 to $100, and out-of-state from $133 to $150.

“PJC is still under the state average,” said PJC President Dr. Pam Anglin.

According to the IPEDS report, PJC outperforms peer colleges in cost of attendance, net price, graduation and transfer rates, and faculty salaries. PJC students utilize more financial aid and Pell grants than at peer colleges. PJC is more dependent on state funding and receives far less in tax revenues (9 percent vs. 20 percent) than peer colleges.
