Private Higher Education: Median $ Unrestricted Resources to Debt, 2009-2016, via Merritt Research Services.

The Unrestricted Resources to Debt ratio measures the coverage of debt that is covered by financial reserves that are expendable by universities. This is at heart a measure of liquidity; how prepared is a given institution for financial emergencies or revenue volatility, be it sudden, dramatic changes in enrollment, cuts in state funding or private grants, or other unforeseen circumstances.


  • Private Higher Education – Median Unrestricted Resources represent 62% of Total Debt.  Slightly Down in 2016 from Past two years.
  • 18.7%  of all Private Higher Ed Universities had less than 10% Unrestricted Resources to Debt.
