Winston-Salem State University would get a small increase in its funding under Gov. Pat McCrory’s proposed $21.5 billion state budget for fiscal year 2015-16, a school official said.

The UNC School of the Arts likely would receive its current amount, and Forsyth Technical Community College would receive a decrease in its allocations under the governor’s budget proposal, officials said.


Legislators in Raleigh will negotiate and approve a final state budget. The 2015-16 budget year begins July 1.

Two weeks ago, the UNC board of governors approved increases to tuition and fees for every school in the UNC system.

WSSU would receive $88.17 million in the 2015-16 fiscal year under the governor’s budget proposal. The school’s current budget is $87.92 million, said Randy Mills, the school’s associate vice chancellor for finance and planning. read more…
