State appropriations and tuition per in-state student FTE
for the 2004-2005 fiscal year

Selected AAU public institutions

Last updated 03/06/2006

Graph      Summary and interpretation      Table of Figures      Technical notes and data sources


  • All figures are for a single fiscal year.
  • Data compiled by the University of Virginia, from a November 2004 query to all public members of the American Association of Universities. All members providing data by February 2006 are listed.
  • Except as noted in comments, state appropriation figures exclude hospitals and extension services (e.g., agricultural). If an appropriation was changed after the original allocation, that change is reflected in the amount reported. State appropriation figures do NOT include tuition
  • Enrollment figures are based on Integrated Postsecondary Education Data System (IPEDS) enrollment definitions but limited to in-state residents. Institutions were asked to use residency status before any adjustments were made for out-of-state (OOS) students paying in-state tuition. For example, OOS graduate teaching/ research assistants changed to in-state status for tuition purposes should not have been counted here.
  • FTE enrollment is estimated based on full-time headcount plus one-third of the part-time headcount.

Institutional comments

Iowa State University
Amount includes $19,738,432 for Cooperative Extension and $31,019,520 for Experiment Station (Agriculture and Home Economics).

Michigan State University
The ag experiment station would add $33,163,830 and Extension, $28,604,340 to the state appropriation.

Ohio State University
Included in the state appropriations are instructional funding, mission-based core funding, and the following OSU-specific line items: Sea Grants, Supercomputer, OSU Glenn Institute, BioMEMs program. Also included are the following general line items: Math/Science Teaching Improvement, Resource Ctr-Math/Science/Reading, Urban Universities, College Readiness Initiatives, Library Book Depository, Student Support Services, and Capital Component. Figures shown are for the Columbus campus only; regional campuses are excluded.

Purdue University
Appropriations exclude $17,632,498 dedicated to exclusive use in making debt service payments on academic buildings. Also excluded are restricted appropriations for agriculture mission areas. Cooperative Extension Service = $4,987,536 Ag Experiment Station = $18,371,114.

Rutgers University
Appropriations amount excludes appropriations for the Agriculture Experiment Station. In-state status is determined by original state when first enrolled and excludes 1,022 students for whom original state is unknown.

University of Arizona
State appropriations figure includes extension because the University of Arizona is a land-grant institution. It excludes University Medical Center but includes College of Medicine.

University of Colorado
Enrollments shown are those reportable to the state for funding. This excludes self-funded continuing education.

University of Florida
State appropriations include general revenue and lottery trust fund.

University of Illinois
State appropriation includes a share of University Administration funding and centrally held resources. State appropriation figure does not include tuition revenues. It also does not include the value of state-supported fringe benefit costs. State appropriation excludes restricted appropriations for the following: Cooperative Extension Service = $10,507,000; Ag Experiment Station = $14,845,275

University of Kansas
State Appropriations figure equals State General Fund budgeted amount of $136,646,183 less $6,093,902 for the Kansas Geological Survey.

University of Maryland - College Park
Total FY05 state appropriation is $310.3M, with $30.9M for Agriculture Extension and Agriculture Experiment Station.

University of Missouri
Withholdings from state appropriation are very likely.

University of Nebraska - Lincoln
State Appropriations figure does not include fees, tuition, other cash funds, debt service, Smith-Lever or NRI funds (NRI is Nebraska Research Initiative).

State University of New York - Stony Brook
"State Appropriations" figures shown do not include any campus-generated revenue (i.e. tuition, interest, miscellaneous fees) which supports its financial plan. It also does not include the value of state-supported fringe benefit costs.

University of North Carolina
The state appropriations amount shown above excludes appropriations for the Area Health Education Consortium.

University of Pittsburgh
State appropriations include the following line items: Educational and General, Dental Clinic, Disadvantaged Students, Center for Public Health Practice, Rural Education Outreach, Laboratory Improvements and Equipment, Information Technology, Student Life Initiatives, Program Initiatives, School of Medicine, Western Psychiatric Institute and Clinic, and Services for Teens at Risk.

University of Washington
Of the state appropriation shown above approximately $16.5 million will be expended in support of the university hospitals for clinical training of the University's health science students. It is part of the instructional deal and should be considered an expenditure in support of instruction not patient services. Data shown are for all campuses of the University of Washington (Seattle, Bothell and Tacoma).

University of Wisconsin
The state appropriation reported here excludes hospitals, research, the state laboratory of hygiene, farm operations, and the veterinary diagnostic laboratory. Debt service and fringe benefits are included. However, we protest the fact that other participants in this survey have excluded debt service and fringe benefits, contrary to the survey instructions. The headcount enrollments include Wisconsin residents AND Minnesota students attending UW-Madison under the terms of a tuition reciprocity compact between the states of Wisconsin and Minnesota. We have significant reservations about this survey because it assumes student mix by level is irrelevant, and because it assumes the presence or absence of a medical school is of no consequence.
