New Program Reviews
The FSBC is charged with reviewing the financial implications of all "New Program Proposals."
The committee has developed a spreadsheet to facilitate realistic budget projections; however, in many cases the cost of a new program is blended with existing costs, and we recognize accurate projections can be difficult. In recent years, the committee has focused on the reliability of budget projections and has weighed the potential new costs versus the desirability of the proposed new program.

Authors of a New Program Proposal are encouraged to talk with a member of the FSBC committee for help developing their budget.
In all cases we remind the authors that growth in enrollment alone is not a guarantee that a new position will be made available and encourage them to structure their programs accordingly. A history of all new program proposals and associated reviews is available on SAIL [ https://www.gvsu.edu/sail/ ].
