My budget periods are not synchronized with the UW academic quarters or year. How do I set up tuition for each budget period?

In situations where the academic quarter spans multiple periods, you must choose the budget period to which you plan to allocate costs. As a general rule, we recommend that you allocate costs to the budget period in which the quarter starts, as that is the period in which you actually incur the tuition cost. For example, if you have two five month periods that start in September, you should allocate tuition for fall and winter quarter in the first budget period, and tuition for spring and summer quarters in the second budget period.
