Celebration of our 75th Anniversary, reaffirmation of our accreditation, $2.66 million for student scholarships and national certification of our financial reporting practices — 2010-2011 was a red-letter year for Del Mar College! The Commission on Colleges of the Southern Association of Colleges and Schools reaffirmed Del Mar College’s educational accreditation for the next 10 years, without a single recommendation for improvement or need to produce a follow-up report. In higher education circles, this equates to scoring 100 on a final exam. I extend my sincere appreciation to the entire team who committed efforts toward the success of this critical process. My appreciation also goes to Mr. Eugene Bouligny, a local businessman who issued a $1 million challenge to raise scholarship funds for our students, and to the leadership of the Del Mar College Foundation for meeting and exceeding that challenge within the one-year deadline. The final total was $2.66 million in scholarship funds that will provide access to students for decades to come. To improve the transparency and accountability of our financial reports, the College produced three reports—this Popular Annual Financial Report, the Comprehensive Annual Financial Report and the Distinguished Budget— within the year. Each received national certification from the Government Finance Officers Association. We also celebrated our 75th Anniversary during 2010-2011 year by recognizing a 750,000th registrant, identifying 75 Distinguished Alumni, enjoying an Alumni Roundup barbecue and western dance, and commemorating each year of our history as part of the 75th Anniversary Commencement Ceremonies, among many other events and recognitions. Last year was a very good year for Del Mar College. Please review the many other highlights in this Popular Annual Financial Report.
Mark Escamilla, Ph.D. President

I started off at a university because I wanted the complete college experience. In some of the classrooms, we had 300 students so I struggled to stay focused. When I got to Del Mar, I saw most of the classes were small and I was able to get that one-on-one attention that I needed to be successful.

Del Mar College Annual Financial Report Del Mar remains fiscally sound. A complete financial condition and history based on assets, liabilities and net assets for all funds and account groups is detailed extensively in the College’s Annual Financial Report for each of these years and Comprehensive Annual Financial Report for 2011.
Assets Current assets are those resources reasonably available within one year. Unlike other forms of assets, cash and equivalents such as checking account balances and demand deposits, can be used immediately for current operational needs, such as meeting the payroll or paying vendors. Short-term investments represent the College’s holdings in allowable financial instruments due within one year. Receivables represent those monies due to the College but not yet available for use; examples include property taxes not yet paid and accrued interest. Noncurrent assets are the College’s long-term financial and plant resources.
Restricted cash is the College’s endowed scholarships transferred to the Foundation in 2011. Bond issuance cost was the cost of issuing bonds which is being amortized over the life of the bonds. Plant and equipment account for the College’s equity in land, buildings, real estate improvements (such as roads and security lighting), and capital equipment expenditures such as computer network servers and digital projectors.
Liabilities Current liabilities are short-term obligations. Accrued payroll, accounts payable, and other accrued liabilities represent amounts due to employees or vendors for services, supplies or equipment provided to the College. Unearned revenues include property taxes and student tuition billed for the fall term and not yet earned.
Net Assets Net assets are the accumulated resources invested in plant and equipment.
Property Taxes The local property owners provide almost 44 percent of total resources for the fiscal year 2011. However, for a typical homeowner, Del Mar’s 2011 rate of 0.258 dollars per $100 assessed valuation represents only 11 percent of the tax bill. This compares with a local school district rate of about 1.237 dollars and the City of Corpus Christi rate of 0.572 dollars per $100 assessed valuation. Property taxes are a significant source of revenue for all Texas community colleges.
Noncurrent liabilities represent longterm obligations, usually due over a number of years.

Operating revenues decreased by $1.6 million from 2010 to 2011 fiscal years, primarily due to an increase in scholarship allowances funded by the federal government. Non-operating revenues increased by $2.1 million primarily from an increase in federal financial aid. Scholarship allowances are reductions of tuition and fees funded by outside sources such as federal Pell grants.

Instruction expenditures include not only personnel costs and supplies but also the personnel and materials required to plan, implement and manage the instructional programs. Academic support comprises those programs that directly support the instruction process, such as tutoring, library operations and instructional media services. Student services include registration and records, financial aid, counseling and other activities that provide non-academic support services to students. Operation and maintenance costs relate to those maintenance, housekeeping, public safety and other costs necessary for the proper and safe operation of the physical plant of the College. General institutional support encompasses general regulation, direction and administration, as well as those costs applicable to the College on an institution-wide basis, such as Commencement and accreditation activities. Auxiliary enterprises are those activities that charge a fee for service, such as the food services and other business-type activities.
