Budget

  • Although the committee will generate some of its own questions, here are some topics/issues to begin the discussion.
  • What are the pros and cons of the per credit tuition rate structure?
  • Should the University consider a flat tuition rate? If so what is the impact of the flat rate on tuition revenue? On part-time students? Would the part-time rate student change and if so how?
  • Should there be a differential tuition rate for on-line courses? For courses in different disciplines? For example, should the University charge more for an Engineering courses vs. English course? More for an online vs. live course? What would the impact of these changes have on our market?
  • Should the University reward special incentives for students who graduate in four years? For example, provide a scholarship to offset some of the tuition costs?
  • What impact will the pending budget reductions have on enrollment? Should resources from "unproductive" programs be shifted to "productive" programs? How can the resource allocation process be tied to enrollment growth in academic programs?
  • What impact would an enrollment increase or decrease have on the University's operating budget?
  • Should there be a structure for assessing course and or lab fees? Some courses, such as science labs and art courses have disposable supplies and/or costly equipment. Should a separate lab fee be assessed for those courses (some currently exist) or should all course/lab costs be included as part of the tuition?
  • One of the roles of the budget subcommittee is to review the recommendations made by the other enrollment management subcommittees to determine the costs/benefit of the resource need.
  • How do you institute financial accountability to ensure the initiatives that are funded produce the desired outcome?
