Recent College budget information is available below.  Additional information on budget and other financial reports are available on the Financial Reports website.

Fiscal Year Budget Overview

Annually, the College prepares a budget based upon projected enrollment, revenues, and expenses which is ultimately approved by the College's Board of Governors. The budget is developed through a series of Board actions and discussions that occur during the fiscal year. These items include preliminary budget assumptions, tuition & fees, capital projects, contracts, and the preliminary budget. Each of these items is an important piece of the foundation of a final budget that is submitted for approval by the Board of Governors in June of each year. The fiscal year begins July 1 and ends June 30.
