Explanation of Terms

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.

More detail may be found in Miami's annual Financial Reports.
