Trustees approve interim budget for 2013-14

UNIVERSITY PARK, Pa. – Penn State’s Board of Trustees today (May 3) approved an interim maintenance and operating budget of $4,282,763,000. This budget supports all Penn State operations and enterprises throughout the Commonwealth. The University adopts an interim budget each year so that it has an approved fiscal operating plan from the beginning of the fiscal year, July 1, until the University’s Board of Trustees formally approves next year’s actual budget.

Details on the current 2012-13 budget, which serves as a basis for this interim budget, can be found online at

No action on changes in tuition and necessary expense increases -- including employee salaries, wages and benefits -- will be taken until after the 2013-14 state appropriation is known and the University’s budget plan has been reviewed and approved by the Board of Trustees in July. After receiving and analyzing the final state appropriation figures, the University will develop a specific budget for the 2013-14 fiscal year that addresses these and other line items.

The final 2013-14 Penn State budget is scheduled for presentation to the board for approval at its next meeting, scheduled for July 11-12 at Penn State Fayette, the Eberly Campus.
