• Why does the University deny budget increases?

    As you may know, Saint Martin's is a tuition driven University. Meaning, we operate on the revenue that is generated by the students that attend Saint Martin's. The number of students enrolled in undergraduate, graduate and international programs dictates how much money the University has to spend on goods and services. Even if enrollment may increase in one year, the University incurred prior year losses that it has to recover before being able to increase current year budget.
