Tuition Attribution Reports

Tuition Attribution Links


The Office of Budget and Planning (OBP) administers the process that attributes tuition and fee revenue to U-M's Schools and Colleges as part of the General Fund Budget Model. Tuition Attribution reports detail how this revenue is distributed by Unit of Registration and by Unit of Instruction. They are designed to support Unit Budget Administrators with the annual General Fund budget cycle at U-M.

Report Overview

These reports provide:
  • A high level summary that compares budgeted and actual tuition and registration fee revenue
  • Detailed comparisons of projected and actual unit registration head count equivalent and unit revenues (tuition and registration fees)
  • The ability to drill down to student details by clicking actual amounts from enrollment or instruction.

Data can be exported to Excel for additional analysis.

The Tuition Revenue Summary report shows high level tuition attribution information for a school, organized by career level.

The Total Students report compares registration (HCE) information with revenue and shows variances between projected and actuals in each category.
