The NOCCCD budget model recognizes four “budget centers” for the purposes of budget allocation and expenditures: District Services, Cypress College, Fullerton College, and the School of Continuing Education.
The District Services budget center comprises all budgetary information for the Educational Services & Technology, Finance and Facilities, Human Resources, Public & Governmental Affairs, and Information Services departments, and for the Chancellor’s Office.
The Cypress College, Fullerton College, and School of Continuing Education budget centers comprise all budgetary information for these institutions.
The individual budget centers have discretion over their campus allocations. The specific allocation processes for each campus are determined by the respective budget center’s allocation model and planning processes.
For assistance with your department budgets:
Cypress College, Fullerton College and School of Continuing Education employees should work directly with their respective campus budget offices.
District Office staff should work directly with the District Fiscal Affairs department.
