†Not applicable.
1 A "1" indicates a public institution, and a "2" indicates a private nonprofit institution.
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 nonprofit institutions that do not treat Pell grants as pass-through transactions. Data for public institutions and for private nonprofit 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.
