University Budgeting and Tuition
Budget decisions have a big impact on graduate and professional students and can involve:
- Eliminating degrees or academic programs
- Raising tuition or course fees
- Moving degrees into "fee-based" programs (which includes major tuition increases)
- Consolidating departments or schools
- Reducing T.A.positions
GPSS has consistently advocated for a stronger student voice in University budget decisions.
