MUNCIE, Ind. (AP) — Ball State University says it was forced to eliminate 25 positions, curb travel and reduce supplies to avoid ending fiscal year 2019 with a budget shortfall.

The school's board of trustees was given the update on Wednesday before the board approved a $391.2 million 2019-20 general fund budget that calls for an increase in tuition and fees of 1.25%.

The reductions of 25 positions, travel spending and supply expenditures saved $4.5 million.
