Initial Blade report - possibly no furloughs

More UT students could mean no furloughs


The University of Toledo could scrap the planned furlough program because of a larger than expected fall enrollment.

UT had planned to require at least one day unpaid furlough for all employees to trim $1.3 million of an $8 million budget deficit caused by reductions in state funding.

But anticipated fall enrollment numbers around 23,000 students — the official count will be available Tuesday — might bring in enough money to postpone the furloughs.

UT is still crunching the numbers and the UT Board of Trustees would need to approve the budget amendment.

The university's 2008 enrollment was 22,336 students.
