Enrollment continues to climb for fall semester
Stock photoUvalde, TX, – Registration, both online and in person, continues for fall semester classes at SWTJC.


SWTJC Registrar Luis Fernandez reminds students that time is running out to get applications for financial aid completed.


"Students who will be seeking financial aid and who haven't completed all their paperwork need to get busy," Fernandez said.


Registration for fall classes started in April and over 2,900 students have already registered.


Fernandez says the earlier students register the better their chances of getting the instructors they want, the classes they need and the times they need them.


"Registering early also gives students more time to arrange payment options," Fernandez said.

Trustees approve balanced budget, appoint vice president of Del Rio campus
Uvalde, TX, – It was a busy night for SWTJC trustees during the board's regular monthly meeting on June 16 in Uvalde.


Highlighting the action taken, the board adopted an operating budget for the fiscal year 2018, appointed a vice president of the Del Rio campus and approved a salary increase.


The fiscal year 2017-2018 budget is balanced at $45.6 million, up $2.8 million from the 2016-2017 budget.


Increases in state support and tuition account for most of the rise. Hector Gonzales, college president, said, “We have realized about a $400,000 increase in state appropriations.”


The board of trustees approved a salary increase of two steps for all employees on a classified scale. Also, board members authorized one percent as an equivalent for one step for unclassified employees.


In other business, trustees appointed Connie Buchanan as the new vice president of the Del Rio campus, replacing Derek Sandoval who filled the vice president of administrative services earlier this year. Buchanan’s new role as vice president of Del Rio will take effect July 1.
