Strategic Goal Four - Fiscal Stability
Secure Multiple Revenue Streams


In fall 2012, AMSC changed from a SACSCOC Level 1 to Level 2 institution, which authorized the College to offer bachelor's degrees, in addition to the associate degrees and certificates that it has historically offered since 1974. With this mission change, current fiscal resources must be re-aligned with increased demands of human, physical, and academic resources necessary to provide bachelor's degree program offerings. Fiscal stability (short/long term) and austerity are necessary to sustain the College's competitive edge and stabilize its growth, particularly in the face of adverse factors such as enrollment fluctuations and unexpected events.
