To accommodate working students, all locations of Paris Junior College will be open for special Saturday registration from 10:00 am to noon on Aug 20. In Paris, that will occur at the Rheudasil Learning Center Library.
The college will also hold unique Open Houses at each location from 4:00 pm to 6:00 pm to introduce students to workforce program faculty. It is an opportunity to ask one-on-one questions about PJC’s 75 programs and what students may expect from their training.
Each Open House will also offer complimentary hot dogs and drinks and will take place at:
PJC-Greenville Center, Tuesday, Aug 23, 6500 Monty Stratton Parkway, Greenville
PJC-Sulphur Springs Center, Wednesday, Aug 24, 1137 Loop 301 East, Sulphur Springs
PJC Student Center Ballroom, Thursday, Aug 25, 2400-Clarksville Street, Paris
Both Fall 1 Eight-Week and Fall 16-Week classes start Monday, Aug 29. The shift of most PJC classes to eight weeks should boost student success, allow for greater schedule flexibility for parents and those working full-time, and increase graduation rates.
Qualifying full-time students will also receive free laptops. To qualify, students must take at least 12 hours, with nine of those houses comprised in-person classes in the fall semester. They must also have paid for classes or have begun a payment plan. The college will send email notifications to those who have qualified during the first week of classes.
