College Budget

Additional information on budget and other financial reports are available on the Financial Reports website.

Fiscal Year Budget Overview

Annually, the College prepares a budget based on projected enrollment, revenues, and expenses. The budget is developed through a series of Governing Board actions and discussions, which occur during the preceding fiscal year. These items include the budget forecast, strategic priorities, tuition & fees, capital projects, and contracts, forming the foundation of the final budget.

The final budget is submitted to the Governing Board for adoption in June of each year. The fiscal year begins July 1 and ends June 30.

Below are the most recent documents and timelines used in the annual budget process.
