Trustees approve 2007-08 budget with no tuition increase

Keeping tuition at current levels, the BGSU Board of Trustees approved an educational budget of $263.7 million for the main campus and $12.7 million for BGSU Firelands at its June 22 meeting.

The budget contains a 3 percent increase in the pool for faculty and staff wages and benefits, and a 3 percent increase in funding for graduate student stipends.

The budget is based on projections of the University receiving state funding consistent with the Ohio Senate’s budget proposal for higher education. The proposal is under consideration by a joint Senate-House conference committee. Approval of the state’s next two-year budget is expected before the new biennium starts July 1.

The cost of room and board will increase by 3 percent, leaving total tuition, room, board and registration fees for an Ohio undergraduate student at $15,938. That’s a $194 increase, or 1.2 percent, over last year. There is no increase in the general fee.
