9-6 PUBLIC Colleges and Universities Public Colleges and Universities are owned by a government. Public College financial reporting is covered by GASB. Private Colleges are not owned by a government and their reporting falls under FASB guidance -- covered in chapter 11. Although there are more private than public colleges in the US, roughly 3/4 of the students attend public institutions.
9-7 Public Colleges and Universities – GASB 35 GASB 35 requires statements similar to those of special purpose governments under GASB 34. The effect is to require colleges to use the accrual basis and record long-term assets, including infrastructure, along with depreciation.
9-8 Public College Financial Reports Although public colleges may have governmental type activities, business type activities, or both Most public colleges, will report as governmental units with business activities only. Therefore they will prepare enterprise fund statements Exception: some community colleges that have power to levy property taxes, and may prepare both fund level and government-wide statements
9-9 Public College Statement of Net Assets(position) Assets and Liabilities Are classified as current and noncurrent. Net Assets(position) are Classified as 1) Net Investment in capital assets 2) Restricted -- Nonexpendable and Expendable 3) Unrestricted
