Governor Brian Kemp’s proposed 2021 budget allocates $2.58 billion for the Board of Regents and $373 million for the Technical College System of Georgia. This budget includes money for enrollment growth and a $1,000 raise for full-time employees earning $40,000 or less.
The proposed 2021 budget increase of $10 million for the university system is an increase of 0.4 percent from last year. About $69 million was transferred from the Teaching budget to the Regents Central Office program to reflect increased centralization of information technology resources and services from individual institutions to the university system.
Funding for the Teaching portion of the university system’s operating budget is set to increase by $10 million to $2.3 billion. Major changes include:
$78 million for formula-funded enrollment growth
