FY 14 Preliminary Budget Assumptions
Cavanaugh discussed FY 14 enrollment assumptions and FY 14 gross tuition revenue estimates. Preliminary budget computations were shared. Mandatory and non-mandatory needs were outlined. A summary showed the total projected funds that may be available for a strategic investment fund.
Currently there is no process for setting course fees. A course fee replacement is being considered which would allow for course fees to be included as part of the overall cost of tuition.
Chair Ciccolella moved that the IPC temporarily suspend the strategy of setting tuition based on the midpoint of the CA 8 peer group. The motion was seconded. This item will be discussed at a future meeting.
