MACC Board Approves Budget

The MACC Board of Trustees Monday approved the budget for the fiscal year that starts July First. President Dr. Jeff Lashley says it’s about 30 million dollars, roughly the same size as the budget the past few years.

Enrollment has stayed fairly steady, and state aid has increased.

He says maintaining enrollment will continue to be important, and not just because of students’ tuition and fees.

The board also approved the course fee schedule for the upcoming year, and renewed the early college agreement with the Columbia School District.
