York College’s Budget Deficit Expected to Rise to $2.7 Million

YORK COLLEGE–The 2018 Fiscal Year saw York College enter into a $1.5 Million budget deficit that led to York administrators enacting a hard hiring freeze and budget cuts to various departments in an effort to reduce spending.

Despite these efforts the budget deficit is still projected to rise to $2.7 million by the end of the 2019 Fiscal Year.

In order to generate funds to decrease the deficit, York administrators began searching for ways to generate funding, new ways to reduce energy consumption and work towards increasing student enrollment by 1.5 percent.
