The Midwestern State University board of regents met to discuss the university's budget.
Texas faces a budget shortfall of at least $15 billion and early budget drafts would slash more than $700 million in state money for higher education.
MSU President Doctor Jesse Rogers said the university is making progress on the cut backs and have a framework in place for planning the budget. The board of regents also discussed tuition fees. Rogers said he doesn't want to put any more burden on the students.
