In a setback to efforts to expand academic programs, university officials have eliminated a new communications major at Ventura County's budding Cal State campus, a move that has angered a small but vocal group of students intent on pursuing such a degree. Communications students at the satellite campus of Cal State Northridge were told in September that low enrollment had forced cancellation of the new program.

Hoping to boost district enrollment, Ventura County Community College administrators have released a tentative budget that includes more money for full- and part-time faculty and for two new programs expected to draw more students to the district. The $72.2-million budget proposed for the 1996-97 fiscal year, which begins July 1, is 5% higher than last year's spending plan and provides for the first raises to be given in several years to college managers, teachers and staff.

The Ventura County superintendent of schools office is planning to construct a $9.2-million building at Camarillo Airport to replace the Cowan Conference Center, which officials say needs to be torn down because of potential structural problems. The proposed 56,000-square-foot, two-story building would be a state-of-the-art conference center with additional space for administrative offices, officials said.

Total enrollment at Ventura County's three community colleges jumped 4% this year, indicating that a widely publicized spending scandal involving the district's top administrator hasn't affected students' desire to attend the campuses, acting Chancellor Jim Walker said Monday. Newly compiled figures show a combined enrollment of 35,904, up from 34,686 last year. Enrollment at Moorpark College is up 4.98%, Oxnard 1.09% and Ventura 5.38%.

Fee increases may cut enrollment at Ventura County's three community colleges beginning in January, district officials said Tuesday. "Any time you increase fees, you're affecting access," board President Pete Tafoya said. "You're cutting people out of the educational process." Next semester, fees will jump from $6 to $10 per unit for undergraduates and to $50 per unit for students with bachelor's degrees or higher.
