Annual Budget for Academic Year 2017-2018

Governor Brown released his budget plan for 2017-2018 on January 10, 2017 cautioning the California Legislature that “this year’s budget will be the most difficult that we have had since 2012.”  He notes: “The surging tide of revenue increases that we enjoyed the past few years appears to have turned. Instead, we now face a budget deficit of $2 billion. While this amount pales in comparison to the $27 billion deficit we faced in 2011, it demands our attention. Small deficits can quickly mushroom into large ones if not promptly eliminated.”

He further writes: “The Administration’s higher education efforts—keeping student costs low, promoting new technology and innovation, and improving graduation rates—will support students’ success in achieving their educational goals. The Budget reflects flat tuition and continues to provide each university system and the community colleges with annual General Fund growth.
