Northwest State Community College facing a nearly one million dollar deficit

Jobs will be eliminated and course offerings will undergo review as Northwest State Community College (NSCC) seeks to rectify a nearly $1 million budgetary shortfall. NSCC President Dr. Thomas Stuckey in a recent memo to faculty and staff that before July 1, 2017, the college will need to trim over $950,000 from the 2016-17 budget. He added it is somewhat difficult for him to convey the seriousness of this situation. The college’s vice president for institutional advancement, Mari Yoder, cited declining traditional student enrollment – meaning students not part of the College Credit Plus or workforce development training programs – as a major factor, adding it’s created a $400,000 loss this spring. A decline in traditional student enrollment in the fall term is expected to follow.
