Many people have experienced a loss of income due to the COVID-19 pandemic, and Paris Junior College is currently working to process income changes related to the disaster.

PJC students with such an income loss, who plan to attend during this summer or fall needs to complete the appropriate FAFSA at Students should follow the instructions on the application.

Once complete, the student should email a COVID-19 Change of Income request to [email protected], submitting the required information. This will allow PJC to make the income adjustments to reflect the current income.

Those students who already have a Zero Estimated Family Income (EFC) from an already processed FAFSA do not need to make any changes, as they are receiving the maximum financial aid available.

“We encourage students to act now to prevent processing delays,” said PJC Financial Aid Director Linda Slawson.
