Paris Junior College will give laptops to qualifying full-time students in the fall semester.
To qualify, students must register for a minimum of 12 semester credit hours, of which nine of those hours must be in face-to-face classes, whether in Fall one or two eight-week terms or the Fall 16-week semester. The offer is not available to dual credit/concurrent students.
Students are encouraged but not required to apply for financial aid by completing the FAFSA at www.fafsa.gov. Once students have registered for fall classes, paid their tuition in full, or set up a payment plan, they add their names to the list of those receiving laptops. It will be first-come, first-serve for those meeting the criteria.
During the first week of the fall semester, they distribute vouchers allowing students to get their laptops from the College Bookstore. Should a student drop their classes, they must return the computer to PJC.
