At its recent meeting, the Ithaca College Board of Trustees approved the operating budget for the 2017–18 fiscal year.

The $234.5 million revenue budget represents a 1.6% decrease compared to 2016-17. The decrease is due primarily to the fact that the larger-than-usual class that arrived in fall 2013 will graduate in May of this year. As a consequence, even if fall 2017 enrollment targets are met our overall enrollment is expected to drop, resulting in lower revenue.
