Coronavirus and Paris Junior College

Published or Revised May 03, 2022

PJC able to provide $1000/$500 in pandemic aid to Spring 2022 students

Paris Junior College is prepared to help students affected by the pandemic. This spring, all eligible students will receive funds to assist with tuition, fees and other expenses directly related to education. This funding will automatically be awarded to the student’s account after the official reporting day of the spring semester. These funds are part of the federal pandemic relief program and are limited.

You must be enrolled on the official reporting day to be eligible to receive this benefit

Eligible students will receive $1,000 for full-time enrollment (12 or more credit hours on the official reporting day) and part- time students will receive $500 (enrolled 6 to 11 credit hours on the official reporting day). Funds are issued on a first come, first-serve basis until all are exhausted.

Who is Eligible?

Full and part-time students who are registered for the spring 2022 semester as of the official reporting day.  Dual credit students (still in high school) and transient (PJC is not your degree seeking institution) are NOT eligible.

When will the funds be processed?

The funds will be processed no later than March 22, 2022.

How do students qualify?

Register for the Spring 2022 semester at PJC and then complete the online form on how you would like to receive your funds. You may choose to have your funds applied to your balance or refunded to you through your preferred refund choice, which you set up through your MyPJC account. A FAFSA (Free Application for Federal Student Aid) is NOT required to qualify.

How do students set up how they receive the funds?

Students have a choice to apply the funds directly to the spring semester balance or have the funds go directly to the them. Please use this link to make your choice: https://mypjc.parisjc.edu/ICS/Student/HEERF_Funds_Consent.jnz.

Do the funds affect my financial aid?

No, your financial aid is not affected.

Has your FAFSA information changed due to COVID-19?

If you or your family have experienced changes to your financial situation (for instance loss of employment, reduction of employment, extreme medical expenses, separation/divorce, death of a parent or spouse), we may be able to adjust data in your FAFSA to reflect your current situation. Consideration to adjust your FAFSA requires appropriate documentation so fill out the online form at https://bit.ly/aid-change.
