Illinois state budget's stalemate could impact college students - KMOV

Universities throughout Illinois could see an enrollment drop linked to the state’s budget stalemate. Currently, Southern Illinois University-Edwardsville (SIUE) is seeing one of its largest spring enrollments, but officials there are not sure how long it will last. Associate Vice Chancellor for Enrollment Scott Belobrajdick said there is certainly a feeling of worry if the stalemate continues. The university has 3,000 students who rely on the MAP Grant Funding, which is money the state promises low-income students.
