Lost revenue guidelines
Lost revenue is defined as revenues an institution of higher education otherwise expected but was reduced or eliminated as a result of the COVID-19 pandemic.
Reimbursement for lost revenue is allowable for the Institutional Portion programs. Lost revenue must be associated with the COVID-19 pandemic and can be estimated for the period from the declaration of the national emergency, on March 13, 2020, through the end of the performance period.
Sources of lost revenue associated with the COVID-19 pandemic may include, but or not limited to, the following:
- Academic sources
- Tuition, fees, and institutional charges (including unpaid student accounts receivable or other student account debt)
- Room and board
- Enrollment declines, including reduced tuition, fees and institutional charges
- Supported research
- Summer terms and camps
- Auxiliary services sources
- Cancelled ancillary events
- Disruption of food service
- Dormitory services
- Childcare services
- Use of facilities or venues, including external events such as weddings, receptions, or conferences (other than facilities associated with sectarian instruction or religious worship)
- Bookstore revenue
- Lease revenue
- Other operating revenue
The Institution has the flexibility to reasonably calculate estimated revenue, such as:
- A year-over-year comparison using the prior year.
- A semester-over-semester comparison using the prior year's semester.
- A comparison using a 3- or 5- year combined average revenue as baseline revenue;
- A comparison to previously budgeted revenue or projected revenue for the period; or
- A comparison with a baseline year of a fiscal year prior to the March 13, 2020, national emergency declaration.
Lost revenue calculations must be consistent with the cost principles of the Uniform Guidance (2 CFR part 200 subpart E) as follows:
- Be accorded consistent treatment;
- Measure the amount of baseline revenue and lost revenue consistently;
- Be consistent with policies and procedures that apply uniformly to federally financed and other activities of the institution;
- Not include the estimated amount of lost revenue for the HEERF programs in the calculation of lost revenue for another Federal program;
- Not include any refunds previously provided to students in the institution’s estimate of lost revenue.
Documents that the institution retains to support its estimate of lost revenue include financial records, supporting documentation, statistical records, and all other institutional records pertinent to lost revenue and the administration of the HEERF grant programs generally for a period of three years from the date of submission of the final expenditure report (2 CFR 200.334).
The below chart shows the amount of loss revenue the university will be or has requested for reimbursement from academic and auxiliary sources that was reduced or eliminated due to the COVID-19 pandemic by quarter.
