State appropriations and tuition per in-state student FTE
for the 2011-2012 fiscal year

Selected AAU public institutions

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

PDF of all four state appropriations web pages


  • All figures are for a single fiscal year.
  • Data compiled by the University of Virginia, from a November 2011 query to all public members of the American Association of Universities. All members providing data by February 2012 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.
