More funding trouble as Fresno State president Dr. John Welty is now asking on voters to support the CSU system.
He says, "We must reinvest in higher education and the must continue to say to our elected officials. It's time to stop the disinvest in higher education."
Fresno State faces a budget reduction of up to $10.5 million if voters don’t approve the governor’s proposed tax initiative on the November ballot.
Welty says, "It's time now to make sacrifices for a new generation. Our failure to do that will be a disaster."
Welty laid out the 2012-2013 budget on Thursday. He says reserve funds will cover the school for now, but says some changes need to be made. The changes will affect students like Nick Iglesias.
Iglesias says, "They've got to do something. It's getting ridiculous."
Fresno State will not admit any students next spring. Instead they'll be wait listed until after the November election. Another money saver, will be a limit on enrollment. Next fall students will only allowed be able to sign up for 16 units.
Fresno State student Nick Iglesias says, "That's going to be a problem for me because I'm supposed to graduate. I'm supposed to take 19 credits the next two semesters to graduate. Wow."
Iglesias will have to put off his dream of working in the music business a little longer. He's facing summer school or another year on campus. He says it frustrating and hopes voters step in to help. "As a community, it's part of our job to help each other and not just concentrate on ourselves and what we think it specific just to us."
