Appropriated Funding Per Student FTE
» Compare all Universities for the 2012 academic year
Education & General appropriations (includes the tuition and fees budget authority appropriated by the Legislature) are divided by total actual FTE students. Only state-fundable credit hours are used. To allow for national comparisons, FTE students for this metric uses the standard IPEDS definition of a FTE student, equal to 30 credit hours for undergraduate students and 24 for graduate students. This does not include appropriations for special units (i.e., IFAS, Health Science Centers, and Medical Schools). Tuition and fee revenues include tuition and tuition differential fee and E&G fees (i.e., application, late registration, and library fees/fines). Other local fees that do not support E&G activities are not included here (see Board of Governors Regulation 7.003).

*Please use caution when comparing data across institutions within the State University System, because they have significantly different missions, student populations, etc. Comparisons with peer institutions are more meaningful.
