Funding for Chemeketa Community College services is provided through a variety of sources including state funding, local taxes, and tuition and fees. We take very seriously our responsibility to be good stewards of taxpayer and student funds. Our budgeting process is open to the public. We invite you to look for notices of our budget committee meetings and the public hearing on the budget which occur in April and May of each year. We are required by law to operate with a balanced budget, and our Board of Education adopts our budget at its June meeting.

Our budget planning process is guided by principles that spell out how we intend to address our current funding issues.
