An Investigation of Operating Expenditures per Full-Time Equivalent Student at Public, 4-Year Comprehensive Colleges Located in Urban Areas.
Federal City Coll., Washington, DC. Office of Institutional Research.
Data were collected from a selected group of four-year, comprehensive colleges located in urban areas in New England, Mideast Atlantic Coast, and Middle West states. Eighteen schools were selected on the basis of their offering bachelors and masters degrees, and being public schools. Their operating expenditures for FY 1975 were collected from Part B of the HEGIS Survey on revenues and expenditures in higher education. Other factors were obtained to determine the total number of full-time equivalent students taught during the period covered by the expenditure report. Data of this type were obtained through a telephone survey of each institution and included the number of credit hours used to determine a full-time student at the graduate and undergraduate levels, number of terms in the academic year, credits being offered, and the total head count and full-time equivalent enrollment served during each term in FY 1975. Comparative statistics are offered for this group of schools and Federal City College (FCC). It is noted that FCC spent only $20 less per full-time equivalent student than the highest expenditure for institutional support found in the sample colleges and that FCC's per student expenditures for libraries and overall academic support were only slightly lower than the highest in the sample.
