The graduation rate value includes only programs that were completed less than six years for four-year degrees or less than three years for two-year degrees.

Graduation rate is the percentage of institution’s new-entering, first-time, first-year undergraduate students who complete their program within 150% of the published time for the program. Graduation rate excludes an extensive number of students. This indicator doesn’t consider students of nontraditional enrollments - part-time students, students who enroll mid-year, and who transfer from one institution to another. So graduation rate alone can create a misleading perception. Completion rate in the form of total number of students receiving any types of awards/degrees creates a complete picture. Combining this data with graduation rate is a better way to compare institutions.

Student Reviews and Ratings for Paris Junior College

Overall Rating:

I absolutely love this school and the town in it. I am originally from a town of over 800,000 people in Florida, I moved here and am currently going to college on campus. The school is very affordable if you don't qualify for any grants or anything, and the staff in the admin department really help get you started on scholarships if you haven't yet or don't know how. The instructors here are very easy to get along with as well as they are more than willing to help out in any way they possibly can. The town is small enough that most people know or know of each other, but more welcoming than any other small town I have ever visited and I have been in Texas over 6 years. the campus has plenty of room for growth, and the math and since building is extremely nice. I am happy to go to this school and have no complaints.

I attended PJC in 1993-94 and I had to leave because the father of my children left me in poverty. At the time, the staff would not budge to help me or even tell me what options I had. I hate that I lost out on my education especially since I recevied a scholarship in Journalism in high school. I just wish someone would have helped me back then so that I would not have felt that I had to leave Paris to get a decent education.

This is not the college you want to come to if are not from this region. Outsiders are NOT welcome here. The school itself may have a nicely written policy stating they will not tolerate racism or sexism behavior, but the students have their own policy and it goes like this: If you are not white, know your place. If you are not male, know your place. The instructors will turn a blind eye to the local’s behavior. I would not suggest anyone outside this county to come here. This community likes 1924 and they are not willing to accept anyone that looks, thinks or acts differently than them. Be warned that many instructors speak with such a horrible accent that it is impossible to understand what they are trying to say. And I have noticed that the ones have starred this establishment high are actually instructors. You are definitely getting what you pay for.

Nice small city college. From what I have heard the tuition is very affordable and the professors have a passion for their jobs.

You will never find a more caring faculty than PJC. The real world will not hit you until you leave. Isolated, but unique. Two more years of High School is what you will experience. Hope the negative views here are unique and isolated to a few. Sorry to hear about the events that happened.
