Continued energy cost increases. Multi-year budget planning process. Non-personnel costs remain level. No tuition caps are mandated by the state or federal government.

20 MI State Aid Information What Does This All Mean? We’re a great institution and that’s not going to change. Quality teaching and learning must and will continue. We have a good mix of programs and services. Enrollment targets must be met. Costs will go up. Layoffs are not in the interest of the institution. Bankruptcy is not an option! Tuition and fees will go up. Facilities improvements and equipment purchases will slow but not stop. We must come together in spring 2004 to pass a property tax renewal. Remember, we’re a great institution and that’s not going to change!

21 MI State Aid Information We’re All Part of the Budgeting Solution! Each of us has valuable knowledge of their operations and can offer important suggestions on how to reduce expenses and increase revenue. We all have a vested interest in continuing to make ACC as strong an institution as possible!
