University Revenues and Expenditures

The University can be compared to that of a large business.  It has multiple sources of income and has many types of expenses associated with the operation of its business.

The greatest sources of revenue include (in typical order of greatest to least) Tuition and Fees, Auxiliary Enterprises, State Appropriations, and Grant funding.

Regarding expenditures, the single largest category is salaries and fringe benefits, which accounts for more than half of the total expenditures. Other major expenditures include those for scholarships, contractual services, supplies and materials, equipment purchases, debt service, utilities, maintenance, and repairs.
