State appropriations and tuition per in-state student FTE
for the 2010-2011 fiscal year
Selected AAU public institutions
Last updated 05/31/2011
NOTE: for FY 2010-11 (the numbers here), CU-Boulder state appropriation figures EXCLUDE state appropriation 'backfill' from federal American Relief and Recovery Act (ARRA, stimulus) funds (per University
of Virginia instructions). We are uncertain if this was done for other institutions. Please see the notes for more information.
Summary and interpretation
Table of Figures
Technical notes and data sources
State appropriations (from state tax dollars) and tuition revenues fund educational expenditures
of public universities for in-state or resident students. Per-resident-student appropriations and
tuition can be compared across institutions.
Among the 24 public research universities with available data, CU-Boulder's 2010-11
state appropriation per in-state resident FTE (full-time student equivalent) of $3,620 ranks
CU-Boulder's resident tuition plus fees rate of $8,511 is the 13th lowest.
The combined state appropriation per resident FTE and tuition plus fees ranks lowest
and is $8,723 less than the average for all institutions, and $7,306 less than the average
for institutions without a medical school.
Data source: Compiled by the University of Virginia, from a November 2010 query
to all public members of the American Association of Universities. All members providing data
by February 2011 are listed.
