DIFFERENCE (TOTAL RECOMMENDED AND EXISTING OPERATING BUDGET)

The total means of financing for this program is recommended at 115.9% of the existing operating budget. It represents 95.3% of the total request ($9,258,299) for this program. The major reason for the increase from the existing operating budget is due to the statewide Risk Management adjustment ($936,164) cited above. Another significant increase 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 $178,182 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.
