TC3 projects decrease in fall enrollment

TC3 projects decrease in fall enrollment

Tompkins Cortland Community College is projecting fall enrollment to decrease by about 5%, leaving college officials to find $750,000 in savings to make up for the lost revenue.

President Carl Haynes says the college has already made about $670,000 worth of cuts by consolidating and eliminating low-enrollment classes, decreasing the number of adjunct faculty and cutting department and equipment costs.

In addition to cutting expenditures, Haynes says TC-3 is looking to expand revenue with new offerings such as a new farm-to-bistro program which has gained interest among the current and prospective student body.
