ABSTRACT
State agencies to look for ways to cut more money from their budgets may compel the U.S. University System to consider limiting campus enrollments and requiring students to take some courses online according to chancellor Tom Meredith. In a recent presentation to the Board of Regents, Meredith said the latest round of proposed budget reductions could result in those kinds of restrictions at the state's 34 public colleges and universities. Enrollment hit a record high of more than 233,000 last fall, and projections are that the number of students will continue to increase. But Meredith said that trend might have to be reversed in the wake of a memo from Perdue's budget director, Tim Council, that ordered state agencies to identify 2.5 percent of the current year's budget and 5 percent of next year's budget for possible cutbacks.
