Goss rated a $2 million
deficit this year for the Athletic
During -his presentation to the
regents, Goss indicated the department
could see air $880,000 surplus for fiscal
ear 2000.
After presenting the department's
budget, later approved by the eight-
member board, some regents rallied
behind Goss while others closely ques-
tioned his department's fiscal practices.
"We need to understand why
expenses are increasing beyond our
means," said Regent Andrea Fischcr
Newman (R-Ann Arbor).
# Newman said part of the problem is
a lack of communication between the
regents and the Athletic Department.
"It took a long time to get answers,
and when I did get them, they were not
good," Newman said.
Goss said new revenue-generating
initiatives not meeting expectations
and lower basketball revenues con-
tributed to the budget shortfall.
"I take loll responsibilities for thos'
decisions." Goss said.
In reply to Newman's statement.
3oss stid the such a deficit will not be
repeated next year.
"We hate procedures that are it
place to make sure that all teams and
departments operate within tteir bud-
gets." Goss said.

Regents approve tuition increase

Creating the lowest hike in more than a decade,
e University Board of Regents approved a 2.8
rcent increase in all undergraduate student
ition as part of the 1999-2000 budget at their
eeting on Thursday.
Earlier in the week, University Provost Nancy
antor said tuition increases were kept low due to
nerous state appropriations. The University
ceived an additional 4.75 percent in state funding
r the coming year, bringing the total to $338.9 mil-
"We are really happy this year," Cantor said. "The
ate appropriation works well with students and fam-
es and we were pleased to hold tuition down, even
elow what the governor's legislation recommended."
The in-state tuition for a lower division LSA stu-
ent will increase by $87 and $98 for an upper divi-
ton student.

LSA junior Elsa Argyres said she is not concerned
about the additional expenses she will have to pay
next term.
"Because I'm in-state, my family and I already
think we are getting a great deal." she said.
Argyres said her older siblings attended the
University and her parents have planned for tuition
increases throughout the years.
School of Education senior Danielle Cross said she
is glad the increase is less than it has been in recent
years, but said any extra costs do put a dent in college
students' bank accounts.
Cross said while an increase of close to $100 a term
"may not seem like a lot in the real world, when liv-
ing on a college budget, it is a lot when translated into
pizza and trips to the bar."
In years past, University students benefited from
the state's tuition tax credit, which allows additional
funding for those at institutions that keep tuition at the
rate of inflation.

1999-2000 Rates
Tuition and Fees
Lower division Upper division
LSA $3,074 $3,476
Engineering $3,248 $4,223
Kinesiology $3,248 $3,740
LSA $9,788 $10,482
Engineering $9,847 $11,062
Kinesiology $10,411 $11,382
Since the rate of the inflation for this year is 1.6 per-
cent, University students will not be able to take
advantage of the credit when filling out their income
tax returns.
Cantor said the tuition tax credit is expected to be
