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 25 public research universities with available data, CU-Boulder's 2011-12
state appropriation per in-state resident FTE (full-time student equivalent) of $3,243 ranks
CU-Boulder's resident tuition plus fees rate of $9,152 is the 12th lowest.
The combined state appropriation per resident FTE and tuition plus fees ranks lowest
and is $8,528 less than the average for all institutions, and $7,863 less than the average
for institutions without a medical school.
CU-Boulder state appropriation figures for FY 2009-10 and FY 2010-11 EXCLUDED state appropriation 'backfill' from federal American Relief and Recovery Act (ARRA, stimulus) funds (per University of Virginia instructions). FY 2011-12 did not have any
ARRA funds. We are uncertain how this was handled at other institutions. Please see the notes for more information.
Data source: 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.
Institutional changes: Georgia Institute of Technology and Iowa State University data were added for FY 2011-2012.
