The tables and charts in this section all pertain
to fiscal-year based financial reporting, as used
in the IPEDS
Finance Survey (reported by Miami University to
the federal government each Spring). Miami uses GASB
34/35 standards for financial reporting, though
the affiliated Miami University Foundation uses FASB standards.
Since FY 2002, all Miami branches have been reported
as a single entity. Tables and charts in this section
which use data previous to FY 2002 show all 3 campuses
combined, to ensure comparability.
Miami's fiscal year, like that of most universities,
runs from July 1 through June 30 of the next calendar
year. For example, FY 2005 began on July 1, 2004 and
ended on June 30, 2005. Please note that because financial
information is not generally reported until it has
been certified by independent auditors, there is a
lag of several months before the information is available.
The endowment information shown in this section matches
what is reported in the NACUBO
Endowment Study and includes Miami University
and the Miami University Foundation.
