Texas Tech’s budget has been increased again, though not as much as in past years.

The Texas Tech Board of Regents approved a budget for the 2012 fiscal year, which has an increase of less than 1 percent over the previous budget.

That overall increase comes out to about $13.8 million for the entire system. A tuition hike of nearly 6 percent was previously approved by the regents this summer.

The university system cut around 600 employees and removed some degree programs following state funding reductions. Tech’s budget will increase around $27 million, raising their 2012 total to around $687 million.

Only Regent John Steinmetz voted against the budget.
