2007/08 Support Budget

Enrollment Growth, $79.1 Million

The 2007/08 budget plan includes enrollment growth of 2.5 percent or 8,351 full-time equivalent students (FTES) and 163 FTES in Master of Science in Nursing (MSN) programs. Based on this enrollment growth and the 2007/08 marginal cost of $9,182 per FTES, the correlating General Fund increase for 2.5% enrollment growth is $76.6 million. Additionally, $2.5 million is included at a higher rate to fund MSN graduate enrollment growth.

The Compact calls for 2.5 percent annual enrollment growth at the CSU through fiscal year 2010/11. The level of growth is consistent with enrollment targets projected on the basis of numerous factors including review of the Department of Finance–Demographic Research Unit’s enrollment projections, consultation with campus presidents, and reviews of K-12 enrollment patterns. From 2007 through 2014, the Department of Finance projects enrollment demand for the CSU to increase by more than 65,000 students, with fall term headcounts growing from a projected 422,595 students in 2007 to a headcount of 488,312 students in 2014.
