State Budget Information
State Budget Overview and Budget Resources
At the UW, state funds, tuition revenue, and designated operating funds are used to fund central university operations. Since Fiscal Year 2009, state funding for the UW has been cut in half. Last year alone, state funding declined over 30% (for FY12 over prior) with tuition revenue growing to fill the state funding shortfall.While state funding has declined precipitously, it is still a critical component part of our core education budget.
As the UW heads toward a new fiscal year and begins annual budget discussions, the state Legislature will settle on a new supplemental budget for the current biennium, making changes to FY12 and FY13 state funding levels. State budget details will be provided via Planning & Budgeting briefs. Annual budget discussion information is available here.
