This research was aimed at identifying connotative meanings and myths of college financial statement in Indonesia. Data of the research were two college financial statements and notes to financial statements of state colleges in the form of public service agencies. A content analysis based on Roland Barthes’s semiotics was performed toward the data. Research findings reveal that the connotative meanings of the financial statements are going concern and good governance images. In addition, the myths of the financial statements are hyper-reality, existence, legitimacy, and survival. The myths of organizing public service agencies are global governance, free markets, autonomy, and semi-public goods.
