PJC to offer federal student loans in fall 2007

Published or Revised October 27, 2006

The Paris Junior College Board of Regents has approved an administration recommendation to begin offering government student loans in the fall of 2007.

The student loans will be made available in addition to PELL grants now being offered to qualified applicants through the federal financial aid program for college students.

It was the consensus of the committee studying the program that giving students the opportunity to obtain a student loan will help make a college education accessible for more people within the PJC service area.

In other action, the Board of Regents approved using Estes, McClure and Associates to perform the engineering work for renovation of the campus heating and air conditioning system.

PJC President Dr. Pamela Anglin, in her report to the board, announced that renovations would begin on Thompson Hall at the end of the fall semester. One wing will be vacated during the semester break at which time new lighting fixtures and built-in chests of drawers will be installed, painting will be done and new furniture added.

Dr. Anglin told the board that plans are to have Thompson and Hatcher Halls completely renovated by August 2007.

In other business, the board approved the academic calendar for 2007-2008, and approved a standard pricing guideline for future continuing education programs.
