Financing Higher Education

States provide substantial support for higher education:
   • through direct support for the operation of institutions, particularly      
     public institutions
   • through the financing of capital needs and the ownership of physical facilities
   • through the availability of financial aid to students

The proportion of state financial support varies across states, sectors and institutional types.

Expanding access, increasing student success, ensuring more equitable participation, meeting economic development needs, and promoting education excellence are among the most important purposes for state financing.
