Legislature Requests Increase in Base Aid for TC3

Thursday, February 4, 2016

The Legislature, by unanimous vote, asked the State Legislature and Governor Cuomo to support an increase in community college base aid of $285/full-time equivalent student. The measure notes that recent base aid increases have not kept pace with ongoing increased costs of Tompkins Cortland Community College’s basic operations, despite substantial staff and operational reductions in recent years, and that the College’s current base aid level remains $78/FTE lower than it was five years ago.
