University operating budget
Each year, Financial Planning & Analysis develops a budget blueprint for the university in consultation with colleges and other Ohio State units. The Board of Trustees ultimately approves the budget plan.
Fiscal year 2021 financial plan
Our consolidated Fiscal Year 2021 budget projects:
- $7.5 billion in revenues
- $7.0 billion in spending
The budget plan also reflects Ohio State's commitment to our strategic plan, including focused investments in access and affordability, academic excellence, and patient-focused health care.
Note: The operating budget is prepared as a planning document for the university and uses the best assumptions and expectations available when it is created. The audited financial reports prepared through the Controller's office reflect final performance based on actual circumstances.
