2008-2009 Funding Model Parameters

NC State University – Imputed Formula Funding per SCH based on 2008-2009 Budget Year
The data in this table was used in the Fall 2007 UNC-GA budget projection process for the fiscal year 2008-09 continuation budget. After the projection process finished, the ATS (average teaching salary) was updated in February 2008.

See notes after Table 3 at bottom of page.

This information is intended to assist in program planning, and reflects the nominal dollars generated by new enrollments, assuming full funding of enrollment increase by the state legislature. Please note that some enrollments, such as courses taked by university employees and out-of-state distance education students, are not included in the funding formula and should not be included in revenue estimates. Also note that the formula does not take into account the cumulative effect on the base budget of state budget cuts; therefore, these numbers do not reflect the actual funds available for program support of existing programs. In addition, there is no official policy linking formula funding to internal allocation of funding at the college or department level.

Notes: 

Based on Current (2008-2009) funding formula productivity matrix, standard faculty salary, and support %s.
SCH per Faculty FTE = $ Salary/Purpose 101 subtotal.
These calculations represent change of adding 1 SCH or adding 1 faculty FTE to current base, Future SCHs are projected each fall for the following budget year. SCHs in projection are used to compute change to base in funding requirements for budget process. There is no stated policy that funding change to the institution implies funding change for department.
