Complete College Information
While paying for a college degree can seem like a daunting task, many options exist to help students achieve their goals. In fact, the good news is that, according to the College Board’s Trends in College Pricing 2010 report, “because of increases in grant aid and tax benefits, average net tuition and fee prices are lower in 2010-11 than they were five years earlier, after adjusting for inflation.”
“Twelve years from now, Colorado will generate only enough sales, income and other general-purpose tax revenue to pay for the three largest programs in the General Fund – public schools, health care and prisons. There will be no tax revenue for public colleges and universities, no money for the state court system, nothing for child-protection services, nothing for youth corrections, nothing for state crime labs and nothing for other core services of state government.”

Over the past 10 years, the increase in Native American funding has supplanted the reduction in state funding.
State funding in FY 2011-12 is slightly less than it was 10 years ago.
State funding is down over $3.4 M from the high point in FY 2009-10. (The College is projecting another decrease in FY 2012-13 of over $1.0 M.)
State funding is at approximately the same level as it was 10 years ago. Over the same time period, the Native American appropriation has increased 140%.
While Fort Lewis College has significantly increased its tuition over the past 10 years, the increase in Native American funding has kept us reliant upon the state.
Considering both state funding and the Native American appropriation, in FY 2011-12 Fort Lewis College will receive almost 50% of its revenue from the state – this situation is NOT sustainable.
While all the institutions shown are dependent on the state for funding, the smaller, regional schools show the highest dependency on state funds.
Within the State of Colorado, Fort Lewis College has the third lowest Resident Tuition & Fees and is in the middle of all schools shown in Non-Resident Tuition & Fees.
