Salisbury University to Scale Back Admissions for Spending Freeze

SALISBURY, Md. – Tuition at one Wicomico County university could increase due to the school's decision to implement a spending freeze in preparation for a projected $900 million state budget shortfall over the next two years.

Salisbury University released a statement about how the spending freeze will impact the school from delaying hiring replacement faculty to reducing current operating budgets. The school said those cuts alone could negatively impact services.

The university's president, Dr. Janet Dudley-Eshbach said her main concern about having to implement a spending freeze is how it could affect enrollment and financial aid.

“In light of cutbacks, it may be that we bring in a smaller freshman class,” said Dudley-Eshbach.

“I'm concerned that we won't have enough financial aid that we can take from our operating budget to give back to students,” said the university president.

On average, out-of-state students pay more tuition than in-state student according to data published by the College Board. But some students from both groups said any tuition increase will likely impact their parent's wallets as well as their own.

“I would have to get my parents to pay more because they help me pay (for) school,” said Mauriccio Naverret, an out-of-state business management undergrad who lives on campus.

“I really wouldn't like that at all because I don't want them to spend any more than they do,” said Naverret.

Another undergraduate student said his student loans would be impacted if the tuition were to increase.

“I'm already a little bit short on money as most college kids are,” said Cameron Rich, an exercise science student. “And that just will put a deeper impact on my bank account which I will have to end up paying when I'm done with school,” said Rich.

Schools that have already announced plans to cut spending include Towson University, the University of Baltimore and the University of Maryland Eastern Shore.
