Officially, yes. In reality, it depends.


I'd say that a lot of state run colleges are on the government's bill and I'd also say that a lot of private colleges are only being held up by Pell grants (government money), Stafford loans (also government money) and Alumni donations. However there are some major exceptions as to the "for profit" public college idea. You can have a college that happens to be a public academic university but a private research university.
