TC3 budget asks counties for more money

TC3 budget asks counties for more money

Officials at TC3 are moving forward with a $38.3 million budget proposal for next year.

The school’s board of trustees approved a budget plan Thursday for next year, and now need to get the backing of Tompkins and Cortland county lawmakers.

The budget asks for three percent more funding from both counties, the first time the school has asked for an increase in three years.

Tompkins County would contribute just under $2.8 million, while Cortland County would give more than $1.6 million for the school’s operations.

Each county is expected to act on the budget proposal within the next two weeks.

The budget factors in a 3.6% increase for full-time students, who would pay $4,300 for a full year of school next year. That’s up from $4,150.

Part-time tuition would go up four dollars per credit to $151.
