FLAGSTAFF, Ariz. (AP) - Northern Arizona University is looking to online and summer programs to generate new revenue streams, with President Rita Cheng saying the state’s $17.3 million cut for the coming year probably isn’t temporary.

The Arizona Daily Sun reports (https://bit.ly/1zOsRN3) Cheng made the announcement at an April 30 campus forum on the budget.

Departments campus-wide are being encouraged to offer more summer classes, and Cheng pointed to the university’s Mountain Campus specifically. Cheng said this would help get students through college faster.

Online classes are also being explored along with ways revenue can be shared to partially support the physical campus.

She said the university is also considering a tuition model that takes program costs into account when determining what students pay per credit hour.
