SAULT STE. MARIE, Mich. (AP) - Tuition receipts at Lake Superior State University are about $2.5 million down from what school officials were expecting.

The Evening News of Sault Ste. Marie reports (https://bit.ly/1Jx5cyr ) Sunday that Vice-President for Finance Sherry Brooks also told trustees at the Upper Peninsula school Friday that its deficit is close to $3 million.

Brooks says the school has “a hole to fill and some work to do on” the 2015-16 fiscal year budget.

Lake Superior State’s 120 degree programs will be reviewed. School President Tom Pleger says many of the programs have low enrollment.

Staffing levels also will get a look for possible savings.

The school earlier this year trimmed about $2 million from its $38.5 million budget.

Lake Superior State is in Sault Ste. Marie and has about 2,500 undergraduate students.
