Ocean County College faces $3 million budget shortfall - Amanda Oglesby, APP

Ocean County College, faced with a 7 percent drop in enrollment, has instituted a hiring freeze to help erase a resulting $3 million budget shortfall. In addition, college leaders have renegotiated contracts with vendors and dipped into the school's reserves to close the budget gap. They are also reaching across the state and world for new partnerships they hope will bolster the college's numbers. This fall college officials expected about 7,300 full-time students to take courses. In fact, only 6,950 full-time students enrolled, according to Sara Winchester, the college's vice president of finance.
