State budget cuts almost $12 million from Ball State’s budget

Ball State University will need to cut almost $12 million from its next two-year operating budget.  In an email to the Ball State community, President Jo Ann Gora says the state budget passed Friday night includes a net cut of $11.8 million for the university.  She says this represents 4.7 percent of the school’s operating budget.  The next step in the budget process is to hear recommendations on tuition increases from the Indiana Commission on Higher Education.  Gora says this will happen on or near Friday, May 13th.  Then, the university will hold a public forum on tuition – which is required by law – at the end of May.
