(1) Of the foregoing appropriation item 235501, State Share of Instruction, 25 per cent of the fiscal year 2014 appropriation for state-supported community colleges, state community colleges, and technical colleges shall be allocated to colleges in proportion to their share of college student success factors as adopted by the Chancellor of the Board of Regents in formal communication to the Controlling Board on August 30, 2010.
(2) Of the foregoing appropriation item 235501, State Share of Instruction, 25 per cent of the fiscal year 2015 appropriation for state-supported community colleges, state community colleges, and technical colleges shall be allocated to colleges in proportion to their share of college student success factors as recommended in formal communication from community college presidents to the Chancellor of the Board of Regents dated December 2013.
(3) Of the foregoing appropriation item 235501, State Share of Instruction, 25 per cent of the fiscal year 2014 appropriation and 50 per cent of the fiscal year 2015 appropriation for state-supported community colleges, state community colleges, and technical colleges shall be reserved for course completion FTEs as aggregated by the subsidy models defined in division (B) of this section.
The course completion funding shall be allocated to colleges in proportion to each campuses' share of the total sector's course completions, weighted by the instructional cost of the subsidy models.
To calculate the subsidy entitlements for course completions at community colleges, state community colleges, and technical colleges, the Chancellor of the Board of Regents shall use the following calculations:
(a) In calculating each campus's count of FTE course completions, the Chancellor of the Board of Regents shall use the a three-year average for course completions for the three-year period ending in the prior year.
(b) The subsidy eligible enrollments by model shall equal only those FTE students who successfully complete the course as defined and reported through the Higher Education Information (HEI) system course enrollment file.
(c) For fiscal year 2015, students with successful course completions, identified in division (D)(3) of this section, that are or have been Pell eligible at any time while enrolled at a state institution of higher education, are Native American, African American, or Hispanic, or are 25 years of age or older when they first enroll at a state institution of higher education, shall be defined as access students and shall have their eligible course completions weighted by a statewide access weight. The weight given to any student that meets any access factor shall be 15 per cent for all course completions.
(d) The model costs as used in the calculation shall be augmented by the model weights for science, technology, engineering, mathematics, and medicine models as established in division (C) of this section.
(3)(4) Of the foregoing appropriation item 235501, State Share of Instruction, 25 per cent of the fiscal year 2015 appropriation for state-supported community colleges, state community colleges, and technical colleges shall be reserved for completion milestones as identified in formal communication from community college presidents to the Chancellor of the Board of Regents dated December 2013.
Completion milestones shall include associate degrees, certificates over 30 credit hours approved by the Board of Regents, and students transferring to any four-year institution with at least 12 credit hours earned at that community college, state community college, or technical college.
The completion milestone funding shall be allocated to colleges in proportion to each institution's share of the sector's total completion milestones, weighted by the instructional cost of the associate degree, certificate, or transfer models. Costs for certificates over 30 hours shall be weighted one-half of the associate degree model costs and transfers with at least 12 credit hours shall be weighted one-fourth of the average cost for all associate degree model costs.
To calculate the subsidy entitlements for completions at community colleges, state community colleges, and technical colleges, the Chancellor of the Board of Regents shall use the following calculations:
(a) In calculating each campus's count of completions, the Chancellor of the Board of Regents shall use a three-year average for completion metrics.
(b) The subsidy eligible completions by model shall equal only those students who successfully complete an associate degree, certificate over 30 credit hours, or transfer to any four-year institution with at least 12 credit hours as defined and reported in the Higher Education Information (HEI) system.
(c) Those students with successful completions for associate degrees, certificates over 30 credit hours, or transfer to any four-year institution with at least 12 credit hours, identified in division (D)(3) of this section, that are or have been Pell eligible at any time while enrolled at a state institution of higher education, are Native American, African American, or Hispanic, or are 25 years of age or older when they first enroll at a state institution of higher education, shall be defined as access students and shall have their eligible completions weighted by a statewide access weight. The weight shall be 25 per cent for students with one access factor, 66 per cent for students with two access factors, and 150 per cent for students with three access factors.
(d) For those students who complete more than one completion metric, funding for each additional associate degree or certificate over 30 credit hours approved by the Board of Regents shall be funded at 50 per cent of the model costs as defined in division (D)(4) of this section.
(5) Of the foregoing appropriation item 235501, State Share of Instruction, up to 11.78 per cent of the appropriation for universities, as established in division (A)(2) of the section of this act Am. Sub. H.B. 59 of the 130th General Assembly entitled "STATE SHARE OF INSTRUCTION FOR FISCAL YEARS 2014 and 2015," in each fiscal year shall be reserved for support of doctoral programs to implement the funding recommendations made by representatives of the universities. The amount so reserved shall be referred to as the doctoral set-aside.
The doctoral set-aside shall be allocated to universities as follows:
(a) 62.50 Sixty-two and one-half per cent of the doctoral set-aside in fiscal year 2014 and 55 per cent of the doctoral set-aside in fiscal year 2015 shall be allocated to universities in proportion to their share of the statewide total of each state institution's three-year average Doctoral I equivalent FTEs as calculated on an institutional basis using historical FTEs for the period fiscal year 1994 through fiscal year 1998 with annualized FTEs for fiscal years 1994 through 1997 and all-term FTEs for fiscal year 1998 as adjusted to reflect the effects of doctoral review and subsequent changes in Doctoral I equivalent enrollments. For the purposes of this calculation, Doctoral I equivalent FTEs shall equal the sum of Doctoral I FTEs plus 1.5 times the sum of Doctoral II FTEs.
(b) 25 Twenty-five per cent of the doctoral set-aside in fiscal year 2014 and 30 per cent of the doctoral set-aside in fiscal year 2015 shall be allocated to universities in proportion to each campus's share of the total statewide doctoral degrees, weighted by the cost of the doctoral discipline. In calculating each campus's doctoral degrees the Chancellor of the Board of Regents shall use the three-year average doctoral degrees awarded for the three-year period ending in the prior year.
(c) 12.5 Twelve and one-half per cent of the doctoral set-aside in fiscal year 2014 and 15 per cent of the doctoral set-aside in fiscal year 2015 shall be allocated to universities in proportion to their share of research grant activity, using a data collection method that is reviewed and approved by the presidents of Ohio's doctoral degree granting universities. In the event that the data collection method is not available, funding for this component shall be allocated to universities in proportion to their share of research grant activity published by the National Science Foundation. Grant awards from the Department of Health and Human Services shall be weighted at 50 per cent.
(4)(6) Of the foregoing appropriation item 235501, State Share of Instruction, 6.41 per cent of the appropriation for universities, as established in division (A)(2) of the section of this act Am. Sub. H.B. 59 of the 130th General Assembly entitled "STATE SHARE OF INSTRUCTION FOR FISCAL YEARS 2014 AND 2015," in each fiscal year shall be reserved for support of Medical II FTEs. The amount so reserved shall be referred to as the medical II set-aside.
The medical II set-aside shall be allocated to universities in proportion to their share of the statewide total of each state institution's three-year average Medical II FTEs as calculated in division (A) of this section, weighted by model cost.
(5)(7) Of the foregoing appropriation item 235501, State Share of Instruction, 1.48 per cent of the appropriation for universities, as established in division (A)(2) of the section of this act Am. Sub. H.B. 59 of the 130th General Assembly entitled "STATE SHARE OF INSTRUCTION FOR FISCAL YEARS 2014 AND 2015," in each fiscal year shall be reserved for support of Medical I FTEs.

The medical I set-aside shall be allocated to universities in proportion to their share of the statewide total of each state institution's three-year average Medical I FTEs as calculated in division (A) of this section.
(6)(8) Of the foregoing appropriation item 235501, State Share of Instruction, 50 per cent of the appropriation in each fiscal year for universities, net any earmarked funding for university regional campuses as detailed in division (B)(1) of the section of this act Am. Sub. H.B. 59 of the 130th General Assembly entitled "STATE SHARE OF INSTRUCTION FOR FISCAL YEARS 2014 AND 2015," shall be reserved for support of associate, baccalaureate, master's, and professional level degree attainment.
The degree attainment funding shall be allocated to universities in proportion to each campus's share of the total statewide degrees granted, weighted by the cost of the degree programs. The degree cost calculations shall include the model cost weights for the science, technology, engineering, mathematics, and medicine models as established in division (C) of this section.
For degrees including credits earned at multiple institutions, in fiscal year 2015, degree attainment funding shall be allocated to universities and branch campuses in proportion to each campus's share of the cost of earned credits for the degree. Each institution shall receive its prorated share of degree funding for credits earned at that institution. Cost of credits not earned at a university main or regional campus shall be credited to the degree-granting institution for each first degree earned at each level, but shall not be eligible for at-risk weights.
In calculating the subsidy entitlements for degree attainment at university main and regional campuses, the Chancellor of the Board of Regents shall use the following count of degrees and degree costs:
(a) The subsidy eligible undergraduate degrees shall be defined as follows:
(i) The subsidy eligible degrees conferred to students identified as residents of the state of Ohio in any term of their studies, as reported through the Higher Education Information (HEI) system student enrollment file, shall be weighted by a factor of 1.
(ii) The subsidy eligible degrees conferred to students identified as out-of-state residents during all terms of their studies, as reported through the Higher Education Information (HEI) system student enrollment file, who remain in the state of Ohio at least one year after graduation, as calculated based on the three-year average in-state residency rate for out-of-state students at each institution, shall be weighted by a factor of 50 per cent. For fiscal year 2014, subsidy eligible degrees conferred to all out-of-state students shall be weighted by a factor of 25 per cent.
(b) In fiscal year 2014, for those associate degrees awarded by a state-supported university, the subsidy eligible degrees granted are defined as only those earned by students attending a university that received funding under GRF appropriation item 235418, Access Challenge, in fiscal year 2009. In fiscal year 2015, subsidy eligible associate degrees are defined as those earned by students attending any state-supported university main or regional campus.
(c) In calculating each campus's count of degrees, the Chancellor of the Board of Regents shall use the three-year average associate, baccalaureate, master's, and professional degrees awarded for the three-year period ending in the prior year. In fiscal year 2014, university regional campuses are not eligible for degree completion funding. In fiscal year 2015, all university campuses are eligible for degree completion funding.
(d) For fiscal year 2014, eligible associate degrees defined in division (D)(6)(b) of this section and all bachelor's degrees earned by a student that either had an expected family contribution less than 2190, was determined to have been in need of remedial education, is Native American, African American, or Hispanic, or is at least age 26 at the time of graduation, shall be defined as degrees earned by an at-risk student and shall be weighted by the following:
(i) A campus-specific at-risk index, where the index is calculated based on the proportion of at-risk students enrolled during a four-year cohort beginning in fiscal year 2001, 2002, 2003, or 2004; and
(ii) A statewide average at-risk degree completion weight determined by calculating the difference between the percentage of non-at-risk students who earned a degree and the percentage of at-risk students who earned a degree in eight years or less.
(e) For fiscal year 2015, eligible associate degrees defined in division (D)(6)(b)(8) of this section and all bachelor's degrees earned by a student that either had an expected family contribution less than 2190, was determined to be in need of remedial education, is Native American, African American, or Hispanic, or is at least 26 years of defined as at-risk based on academic preparedness, age at the time of graduation, minority status, or financial status, shall be defined as degrees earned by an at-risk student and shall be weighted by the following:
A student-specific degree completion weight, where the weight is calculated based on the at risk factors of the individual student, determined by calculating the difference between the percentage of students with each risk factor who earned a degree and the percentage of non-at-risk students who earned a degree.
(7)(9) State share of instruction base formula earnings shall be determined as follows:
(a) The instructional costs shall be determined by multiplying the amounts listed above in divisions (B) and (C) of this section by the average subsidy-eligible FTEs for the three-year period ending in the prior year for all models except Doctoral I and Doctoral II.
(b) The Chancellor of the Board of Regents shall compute a uniform state share of instructional costs for each sector.
(i) For the state-supported community colleges, state community colleges, and technical colleges, in fiscal year 2014 the Chancellor of the Board of Regents shall compute the uniform state share of instructional costs for enrollment by dividing the sector level appropriation total as determined by the Chancellor in division (A)(1) of the section of this act Am. Sub. H.B. 59 of the 130th General Assembly entitled "STATE SHARE OF INSTRUCTION FOR FISCAL YEARS 2014 AND 2015," and adjusted pursuant to divisions (B) and (C) of that section, less the student college success allocation as described in division (D)(1) of this section and less the course completion allocation as detailed in division (D)(2) of this section, by the sum of all eligible campuses' instructional costs as calculated in division (D)(7)(b) of this section.
(ii) For the state-supported university regional campuses, in fiscal year 2014 the Chancellor of the Board of Regents shall compute the uniform state share of instructional costs by dividing the sector level appropriation, as determined by the Chancellor in division (A)(2) of the section of this act Am. Sub. H.B. 59 of the 130th General Assembly entitled "STATE SHARE OF INSTRUCTION FOR FISCAL YEARS 2014 AND 2015," and adjusted pursuant to division (B) of that section by the sum of all campuses' instructional costs as calculated in division (D)(7)(b) of this section.
(iii) For the state-supported university main campuses, in fiscal year 2014 the Chancellor of the Board of Regents shall compute the uniform state share of instructional costs by dividing the sector level appropriation, as determined by the Chancellor in division (A)(3) of the section of this act Am. Sub. H.B. 59 of the 130th General Assembly entitled "STATE SHARE OF INSTRUCTION FOR FISCAL YEARS 2014 AND 2015," and adjusted pursuant to division (B) of that section, less the degree attainment funding as calculated in divisions (D)(3) to (6) of this section, less the doctoral set-aside, less the medical I set-aside, and less the medical II set-aside, by the sum of all campuses' instructional costs as calculated in division (D)(7)(b) of this section.
(iv) For the state university regional and main campuses, in fiscal year 2015 the Chancellor of the Board of Regents shall compute the uniform state share of instructional costs by dividing the university appropriation, as determined by the Chancellor in division (A)(3) of the section of this act Am. Sub. H.B. 59 of the 130th General Assembly entitled "STATE SHARE OF INSTRUCTION FOR FISCAL YEARS 2014 AND 2015," and adjusted pursuant to division (B) of that section, less the degree attainment funding as calculated in divisions (D)(3) to (6) of this section, less the doctoral set-aside, less the medical I set-aside, and less the medical II set-aside, by the sum of all campuses' instructional costs as calculated in division (D)(7)(b) of this section.
(c) The formula entitlement shall be determined by multiplying the uniform state share of instructional costs calculated in division (D)(7)(c) of this section by the instructional cost determined in division (D)(7)(b) of this section.
(8)(10) In addition to the student success allocation, doctoral set-aside, medical I set-aside, medical II set-aside, and the degree attainment allocation determined in divisions (D)(1) to (6) of this section and the formula entitlement determined in division (D)(7) of this section, an allocation based on facility-based plant operations and maintenance (POM) subsidy shall be made. For each eligible university main campus, the amount of the POM allocation in each fiscal year shall be distributed based on what each campus received in the fiscal year 2009 POM allocation.
Any POM allocations required by this division shall be funded by proportionately reducing formula entitlement earnings, including the POM allocations, for all campuses in that sector.
(9)(11) STABILITY IN STATE SHARE OF INSTRUCTION FUNDING FOR COMMUNITY, STATE COMMUNITY, AND TECHNICAL COLLEGES
In addition to and after the adjustments noted above, in fiscal year 2014, no community college, state community college, or technical college shall receive a state share of instruction allocation that is less than 97 per cent of the prior year's state share of instruction earnings. Funds shall be made available to support this allocation by proportionately reducing formula entitlement earnings from those campuses, within the community, state community, and technical college sector, that are not receiving stability funding.
(10)(12) CAPITAL COMPONENT DEDUCTION
After all other adjustments have been made, state share of instruction earnings shall be reduced for each campus by the amount, if any, by which debt service charged in Am. H.B. 748 of the 121st General Assembly, Am. Sub. H.B. 850 of the 122nd General Assembly, Am. Sub. H.B. 640 of the 123rd General Assembly, H.B. 675 of the 124th General Assembly, Am. Sub. H.B. 16 of the 126th General Assembly, Am. Sub. H.B. 699 of the 126th General Assembly, Am. Sub. H.B. 496 of the 127th General Assembly, and Am. Sub. H.B. 562 of the 127th General Assembly for that campus exceeds that campus's capital component earnings. The sum of the amounts deducted shall be transferred to appropriation item 235552, Capital Component, in each fiscal year.
(E) EXCEPTIONAL CIRCUMSTANCES
Adjustments may be made to the state share of instruction payments and other subsidies distributed by the Chancellor of the Board of Regents to state colleges and universities for exceptional circumstances. No adjustments for exceptional circumstances may be made without the recommendation of the Chancellor and the approval of the Controlling Board.
(F) APPROPRIATION REDUCTIONS TO THE STATE SHARE OF INSTRUCTION
The standard provisions of the state share of instruction calculation as described in the preceding sections of temporary law shall apply to any reductions made to appropriation item 235501, State Share of Instruction, before the Chancellor of the Board of Regents has formally approved the final allocation of the state share of instruction funds for any fiscal year.
Any reductions made to appropriation item 235501, State Share of Instruction, after the Chancellor of the Board of Regents has formally approved the final allocation of the state share of instruction funds for any fiscal year, shall be uniformly applied to each campus in proportion to its share of the final allocation.
(G) DISTRIBUTION OF STATE SHARE OF INSTRUCTION
The state share of instruction payments to the institutions shall be in substantially equal monthly amounts during the fiscal year, unless otherwise determined by the Director of Budget and Management pursuant to section 126.09 of the Revised Code. Payments during the first six months of the fiscal year shall be based upon the state share of instruction appropriation estimates made for the various institutions of higher education according to the Chancellor of the Board of Regents enrollment, completion, and performance estimates. Payments during the last six months of the fiscal year shall be distributed after approval of the Controlling Board upon the request of the Chancellor.
(H) STUDIES TO DETERMINE IMPROVEMENTS TO THE FISCAL YEAR 2015 STATE SHARE OF INSTRUCTION FORMULAS
(1) STUDY ON IDENTIFYING "AT-RISK" STUDENTS FOR COMMUNITY COLLEGES
Community college presidents, or their designees, in consultation with the Chancellor of the Board of Regents, shall study the most appropriate formula weights for students who come from "at-risk" populations and recommend how they may be used to determine allocations of appropriations to community colleges from appropriation item 235501, State Share of Instruction, in fiscal year 2015. The study shall identify the socio-economic, demographic, academic, personal, and other factors that identify a student as being "at-risk" of academic failure, and recommend how these factors may be used to determine allocations of the State Share of Instruction for community colleges in fiscal year 2015. The study shall be completed by December 31, 2013. Notwithstanding any provision of law to the contrary, community college presidents, or their designees, in consultation with the Chancellor of the Board of Regents, shall use the results of the study to recommend changes in the determination of the distribution of the community college allocations beginning in fiscal year 2015 and shall report any such formula change recommendations to the Governor, the General Assembly, and the Office of Budget and Management not later than February 15, 2014.
(2) STUDY ON THE USE OF SUCCESS POINTS AND COMPLETION MEASURES FOR COMMUNITY COLLEGES
Community college presidents, or their designees, in consultation with the Chancellor of the Board of Regents, shall study the most appropriate formula weights for the "success points" and completion performance measures used in the allocation of appropriations to community colleges from appropriation item 235501, State Share of Instruction, in fiscal year 2015. The study shall research the most appropriate success points and completion measures that occur during the academic career of community college students and recommend revisions to the current State Share of Instruction model to fund achievement of the success points beginning in fiscal year 2015. In addition, community college presidents, or their designees, in consultation with the Chancellor of the Board of Regents, shall determine how the community college's fiscal year 2015 share of State Share of Instruction funding shall be distributed among its success points, completion measures and course completion funding, or other performance and access measures. The study shall be completed by December 31, 2013. Notwithstanding any provision of law to the contrary, community college presidents, or their designees, in consultation with the Chancellor of the Board of Regents, shall use the results of the study to recommend changes in the determination of the distribution of the community college allocations beginning in fiscal year 2015 and shall report any such formula change recommendations to the Governor, the General Assembly, and the Office of Budget and Management not later than February 15, 2014.
