Financial resources for the college came from the federal land grant, the Hatch Fund, the Morrill Fund and the yearly appropriations from the State Legislature. In 1905 the total appropriations amounted to $165,000.

The WSC Accountant received warrants from the State Auditor, paid the salaries of the employees and expenses of the college, sold textbooks in the Business office, received room deposits, and processed travel vouchers.
