Contact the Records Office for the specific procedure to challenge a grade. <br />If you repeat a course, the last grade you receive is the one calculated in your grade point average. <br />If you receive an Incomplete grade (X), you have until the end of the next long semester to complete the course requirements. If you do not complete the course, the grade will be changed to an F. You do not re-enroll in the class to complete the X. <br />To withdraw from a course after the semester begins, you must see your instructor or academic advisor to obtain a withdrawal form. <br />Students receiving financial aid must contact a Financial Aid Advisor before withdrawing from courses. <br />Students may be limited to six course withdrawals during their undergraduate career. Please refer to the Student Handbook for details concerning Section 51.907 of the Texas Education Code. <br />Students who repeat a course for a third or more time may be charged an added fee of $50 per semester credit hour. <br />Due to the Family Educational Rights & Privacy Act, information about you is not released to parents (or others) without your written permission. Contact the Records Office if you would like to complete a form allowing your parents (or others) to access to your records. <br />You must have all official transcripts and/or other admissions documents on file in the Records Office by the end of your first semester. A hold will be placed on your records if all documents are not received and you will be unable to enroll again or receive an official transcript <br />
  26. 26. Financial Aid for College<br />Financial aid is money that can help you pay for your college expenses. The State of Texas, Federal government, community organizations and Paris Junior College all have money available to assist with the expense of college. You may receive Grants, Scholarships, Loans or college work study. <br />Everyone should apply each year in March or April. The only way to find out what you are eligible for is to apply by completing the Free Application for Federal Student Aid (FAFSA) at www.fafsa/ed/gov . <br />Get a FAFSA worksheet from the financial aid office and complete the worksheet with the requested information. Then log into a computer at www.fafsa/ed/gov and enter the information from the worksheet into the computer and submit it to the federal government. Make sure you put PJC’s school code 003601 on the application so that the financial aid office at PJC will receive the processed information. <br />When your financial aid application (FAFSA) is submitted on-line to the department of education, it is processed and an Estimated Family Contribution (EFC) number is calculated. This number is the amount that the Department of Education says that your family should be able to contribute towards a year of college based on the information that you submitted on your FAFSA. This is the number that will be used to calculate what kind of financial aid and how much you will be awarded. <br />After your financial aid is processed in the Paris Junior College financial aid office (usually takes 2 weeks) you will be mailed an award letter stating what kind of aid you have been awarded and how much for each semester that you were awarded. In some cases, you will receive a request for additional information before the award can be made. Submit all requested information as quick as possible to allow your application to continue processing. <br />You should read and answer the questions in the middle of the page, and sign and return the award letter to the Financial aid office in Paris. <br />Everyone is awarded financial aid based on Full time (12 hours per semester). However, if you choose to take less hours than that, your award will be reduced proportionately. For example, if you enroll in 6 hours, you would get half of the amount you were awarded. <br />If you apply for financial aid early and accept your award before registration, your tuition and fees will automatically be paid by your financial aid. If you have money left after that, you may charge your textbooks and supplies at the PJC bookstore during the week of regular registration. This amount will also be subtracted from your total award for that semester. Room and Board or any other charges will then be subtracted from the remaining amount of your financial aid. Any monies remaining will be given to you about 3 weeks after the semester starts in the form of a check. The business office will post signs telling when and where to pick up your financial aid checks. <br />
  27. 27. EOC can help…..<br />Are you an adult who has thought about returning to college or perhaps enrolling in college or vocational training for the first time? Are you at a loss about where to go or how to begin? The Educational Opportunity Center (EOC) has been developed to respond to the increasing educational needs of adults. Advisors are available to provide individuals with help in three basic areas: financial aid, admissions, and career planning.<br />New students who are 19 years or older and have never attended college or not attended in the past year can be assisted by Daniel Parham. Please complete an application for Admissions & Residency Form and sign in to see EOC – Daniel Parham<br />
  28. 28. Early Admission for High School Students/Dual Credit<br />High school students who have passed sections of THEA or are exempt may be admitted upon written approval from the high school administration. <br />Paris Junior College, through cooperative agreements with area high school officials, has established a concurrent enrollment program for high school students. Eligible students are enrolled at PJC for a reduced course load not to exceed two college courses per semester while completing high school graduation requirements. These students may enroll in either academic or vocational areas and have the option to study in the college’s day or evening program. Before enrolling at PJC, students must supply a transcript and an official letter of permission from their high school principal or counselor for each year they are enrolled. Dual credit students must meet THEA requirements.<br />Are you still considered a High School Student? Flossie Arnold will be glad to assist Early Admission/Dual Credit Students. She is also the admissions advisor and an academic advisor on the Greenville Campus. Please sign in on the Academic Advisor sign in to see Mrs. Arnold<br />
