†Not applicable.
1 Publicly controlled institutions are identified by a "1"; private nonprofit, by a "2"; and private for-profit, by a "3."
2 Includes federal appropriations; operating, nonoperating, unrestricted, and restricted federal contracts and grants; and revenue for independent operations. Independent operations generally include only the revenues associated with major federally funded research and development centers. Pell grants are included for public institutions and may also be included for private not-for-profit institutions that do not treat Pell grants as pass-through transactions. American Recovery and Reinvestment Act (ARRA) funds are not included. Data for public, private not-for-profit, and private for-profit institutions are only roughly comparable because they were collected using different survey instruments.
NOTE: Degree-granting institutions grant associate’s or higher degrees and participate in Title IV federal financial aid programs.
