Noland covers budget, tuition, summer semesters in online ETSU Q&A
The ETSU Board of Trustees will vote on a balanced budget next week that will defer any raises until early 2021 according to an online update given by school president Brian Noland.
The board will also vote on associated costs for students for the fall semester which Noland says includes a zero percent increase in tuition. He noted that funds earmarked for raises will be placed in another account until school officials examine enrollment counts.
“75 percent of all our revenues are predicated on enrollment and our focus needs to be laser-sharp to retain students but to attract students to the institution moving forward,” Noland said.
ETSU is also planning to hold both summer semesters of classes online and Noland anticipates other activities such as athletic camps to be curtailed or canceled.
