Budgeting

There are several models that can be used when building a program budget. If you choose to use a 3rd party vendor, please visit the "Working with Vendors and Business Services Tab" on the left. They will likely be able to provide a comprehensive budget that must be included as part of the proposal form, and can structure the budget to include all or the majority of faculty costs.

Building a program independently is also an option chosen by many WCU faculty. Although it may reduce the overall cost per student, it requires a significantly more planning. Faculty building programs independenlty must use the budget template below which accounts for all faculty costs. Please be sure to account for any funding that you are receiving from your department, college, or outside sources.

As a guide, the Center for International Programs has developed a New Program Proposal Budget Worksheet that can be used to assist you with planning out the program's budget. CIP staff would be happy to meet with you to assist you in completing this budget worksheet as part of your program development process.
