Oklahoma City Community College to make cuts due to state budget crisis - KOCO

Oklahoma City Community College announced several cuts are coming in anticipation of a poor upcoming fiscal year. Part of the college's strategy is to find $3 million in cuts for fiscal year 2017, which begins July 1, and other changes that will impact students and employees. Administration will suggest an increase in tuition and fees and reduction in staff and programming to make up for the budget problems. “We can’t keep services at their current levels with the amount of reductions we have absorbed,” OCCC President Jerry Steward said. “We are planning on almost $5.35 million less when you combine the cuts we already experienced this year, with additional anticipated cuts for next year. That amount is unfortunately going to affect every service, program and individual on this campus."
