SUNY Broome Community College Proposes Budget
It could cost more for students to attend SUNY Broome Community College next year.
The proposed BCC budget weighs in at $50.6 million and calls for a 3.5% increase in tuition as well as 2% more in contributions from Broome County.
If approved, the tuition would go from $1,910 per semester for full-time students who reside in New York State to almost $1,977.
In an effort to hold the line on costs, the college is leaving vacant some 17 teaching and 11 non-teaching jobs.
County Executive Debra Preston could still make changes to the proposed budget before it is presented to the full legislature.
