Community college students could complete their four-year university degree at two-year college prices under a recommendation approved Tuesday by the State Council of Higher Education for Virginia. ...
The proposal was included in systemwide operating budget recommendations for the 2014-16 biennium that total about $381.4 million in new spending from the state’s general fund.
In its capital outlay budget, SCHEV is recommending more than $98.1 million for maintaining facilities rather than building new ones.
While there “may be isolated projects that really need to go forward, which we understand,” the first priority should be maintenance, SCHEV Director Peter Blake said.
