UCP is a non-profit public utility institution and its courses do not benefit from state funding. UCP's financial management is carried out with concerns for rigour and efficiency in the use of resources, with the aim of balancing the expenses it bears with the income it obtains. Accumulated net surpluses, when they exist, are reinvested in the development of the university.
