All monies received by a PASSHE university or the Office of the Chancellor are public funds, including, but not limited to state appropriations; tuition, room, board, and other student fees; restricted and unrestricted gifts; restricted and unrestricted grants; ticket sales from athletic, cultural, or other events; revenue from athletic camps and conferences; corporate sponsorships; and investment income.
The Pennsylvania State System of Higher Education has released guidelines, standards, and limits related to the expenditure of public funds. It applies to all PASSHE universities, branch campuses, and the Office of the Chancellor. The effective date of this guidance is September 1, 2010.
This document, PASSHE Expenditures of Public Funds, Guidelines, Standards, and Limits has been incorporated into our website for your reference.
In addition, West Chester University has issued policies which supplement, but do not supplant, the provisions of the PASSHE document.
