Community college presidents make their budget pitches to lawmakers
Among the community college presidents presenting to JFAC so far this morning was College of Southern Idaho President Jeff Fox, who noted that CSI in Twin Falls is growing and currently has its highest head-count ever at 12,579. Fifty percent of those are students age 17 or younger who are taking dual-credit courses. He noted that dual-credit students, however, account for just 4.6 percent of CSI’s tuition revenue. “We lose a few dollars per dual-credit student,” he said.
