NorthWest Arkansas Community College is one step closer to a permanent home in Washington County.


Budget Cuts

Budget cuts could stabilize tuition for fall, Evelyn Jorgenson, college president told the board on Monday. Budget reductions have not been standard practice, but enrollment has dropped for three years, she said. All departments have been requested to show 5 percent to 6 percent overall cuts to their budgets including less travel, decreased memberships, leaving positions unfilled or changing the qualifications of the job. School administrators are looking at raising a property insurance deductible and moving more projects in-house instead of contracting them out. Budget changes should leave tuition and fees the same when the budget is finished, she said.
