State appropriations (from state tax dollars; for Colorado includes College
Opportunity Fund (COF) and fee for service) 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 2012-13
state appropriation per in-state resident FTE (full-time student equivalent) of $2,993 ranks
lowest by almost $1,000, less than 30% of the reported-peer average.
CU-Boulder's resident tuition-and-fees rate of $9,482 is the 12th lowest,
about 90% of average.
The combined state appropriation per resident FTE and tuition-and-fees,
$12,475, ranks lowest. It is $8,884 less than the average for all institutions, and $8,147 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 2012-13 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 2012 query
to all public members of the American Association of Universities. All members providing data
by February 2013 are listed.
Institutional changes from last year: University of Washington was added and Rutgers University did not report for FY 2012-2013.
Univeristy of Nebraska - Lincoln was removed starting with the FY 2011-2012 results due to their AAU membership ending in April, 2011.
