Unanimous Approval by Orange County Legislature Sets College’s 2015-16 Budget at Just Over $61 Million

MIDDLETOWN, N.Y. -- SUNY Orange officials learned earlier this week that the Orange County Legislature has unanimously approved the College’s 2015-16 budget at $61,009,752 and agreed to provide $17,959,169 toward the spending plan, an increase of 1.92 percent over the County’s allocation from last year.

Orange County’s financial contribution is 29.4 percent of the College’s 2015-16 budget, with student tuition projected to account for 38.3 percent. New York State contributions (21.7 percent) and other income sources (10.6 percent) provide the remainder. This past March, the SUNY Orange Board of Trustees voted to raise tuition $43 per semester for full-time students and $4 per credit for part-time students.

“In my short time at the College, I’ve seen how much this community appreciates and supports SUNY Orange. The Legislature’s vote earlier this week affirms how strongly our county leadership, from County Executive Steve Neuhaus to each of the dedicated Legislators, believes in what we are doing,” said Dr. Kristine Young, SUNY Orange president. “I know I speak for everyone associated with the College when I offer a heartfelt and appreciative ‘Thank you’ to our Legislators for their unwavering support, and I look forward to working with them in the months and years ahead.”

SUNY Orange begins its Fall semester on Monday, Aug. 31.
