U Budget: Biennial Budget

Every two years, the University of Minnesota participates in the state's budget development process by submitting (in accordance with state instructions) descriptive narrative about the University and requests for continued or increased state appropriations. The University's submission is developed in the summer and fall of each even numbered year for the two-year budget cycle that begins the following July. The process to develop the Biennial Budget Request is led by the President and the package is approved by the Board of Regents before it is submitted. The state generally approves the University's biennial appropriation in May of each odd-numbered year. Documentation related to the most recent biennial budget process includes:
