PROGRAM DESCRIPTION

This program includes the following functional categories: Student Services (offices of admissions and the registrar and activities with the primary purpose of contributing to students' emotional and physical well-being and intellectual, cultural, and social development outside the context of the formal instruction program); Scholarships and Fellowships (grants to students resulting from selection by the institution or from an entitlement program and trainees stipends, prizes, and awards); and Institutional Support (central executive-level activities concerned with: management and long-range planning and programming for the entire institution; fiscal operations; administrative data processing; space management; employee personnel and records; procurement; storerooms; safety; security; printing; transportation services; and community and alumni relations).

The General Administration and General Expense Program provides leadership to Southern University-Baton Rouge.

DIFFERENCE (TOTAL RECOMMENDED AND EXISTING OPERATING BUDGET)

The total means of financing for this program is recommended at 104.8% of the existing operating budget. It represents 86.1% of the total request ($20,139,133) for this program. In addition to the statewide adjustments cited above, the major reason for the increase from the existing operating budget is due to Act 856 of 1997, whereby the Southern University Board of Supervisors is authorized to impose certain tuition and attendance fee amounts for nonresident students at all institutions in the Southern System. A $611,117 adjustment to fees and self-generated revenues is recommended for this program to reflect the following campuswide adjustments: a $375 increase in out-of-state undergraduate tuition from $5,842 to $6,227 (vs. the regional average of $7,120) for 2,354 students; and a $62 increase in out-of-state graduate tuition from $4,400 to $4,462 (vs. the regional average of $6,730) for 388 students.
