Operating Budget
The operating budget for 2011-12 approved by the Board of Trustees is $95.7 million. It is projected to be in balance for the sixteenth consecutive year.
In 2011, student revenue (tuition, room and board) provided 51% of all revenue, and is the largest revenue source for the College. Students fund roughly half the cost of their Bryn Mawr education. Thirty-nine percent of the College operations are subsidized by philanthropy.
