Budget Crisis For Community College In Washington State
SHORELINE, Wash. (AP) – Facing a nearly $2 million budget shortfall, administrators at Shoreline Community College have begun a program-by-program review to decide which they will cut.

The Seattle Times reports the Shoreline program attracts about 120 applicants each year but accepts just 24.
In a campus budget update this month, Shoreline Community College President Cheryl Roberts said every program remains under consideration for cuts.
