Bill reviewed our position in month 7 of FY06. Non-resident tuition is down although resident tuition numbers are good. A small number of students can affect our revenue significantly. Grad tuition is up over last year, especially their out-of-state population. We will probably under-spend our financial aid budget because our out-of-state students are generally a wealthier group than in the past.

FBRC report -Alice:
Gene Fahey met with the FBRC to talk about admissions issues. We are targeting a 50/50 mix of resident and non-resident admissions, and we are at 43% non-resident now. This is a very important initiative, one that the cabinet is very strongly encouraging. While non-resident applications are high, not all of them enroll.
