Sac State receives unexpected funds from CSU
Sacramento State, along with other schools in the California State University system, will receive unexpected funds that will provide additional course sections and classes for students, as well as student support services.
The CSU will allocate $25 million in one-time funds which is expected to add about 4,000 course selections at its campuses and potentially retain up to 800 lecturers for the winter/spring term. Sacramento State will receive about $1.5 million. Funds will be used to enhance the course schedule for spring.
The CSU received the funds through an additional $77.5 million one-time federal allocation. The CSU officials say they will reserve the remainder of the funds against what continues to be uncertainty about the state’s current fiscal condition. However, the federal stimulus funds and associated CSU funds are one-time only, and must be used on a limited-term basis and not create ongoing spending.
