Student Aid Tuition and Fees Costs

Line Setup

The setup window for Tuition and Fees is used to add a new line item to your budget. Enter an appropriate description for the tuition and fees. The specific sub-object code for Tuition and Fees (08-05) automatically pre-populates for you.

For more information about sub-object codes, see Object Codes for Expenditures (For the Financial Accounting System–FAS).

The Cascade Entries checkbox will be checked if you chose “Cascade entries on non-salary items” on the Properties tab. If not, you can choose to use it for this specific line item.

You can use the optional Note field to add any relevant information for this entry.

Update Periods

When you have finished the setup, click the Update Periods button.

The Quarterly Tuition Rate and Number of Quarters fields default to the value of zero (0). The Increase % field will display the Tuition Inflation Rate as set in the Global Attributes section of the Properties page. You can adjust it as needed.

Values entered in the setup step for the Description and UW Sub-Object Code display here for reference.

The name of the period and its date range will display on the menu bar so you can easily tell which period you’re working on.

You will need to enter values for these fields for each period:

  • Quarterly Tuition Rate is the dollar amount for this period.
  • Number of Quarters is the number of quarters for this period.

The Total Tuition will recalculate when you click the Save icon.

  • Total Tuition = Quarterly Tuition Rate times Increase % times Number of Quarters

At this point you do either one of the following:

  • Select Save and Return to Worksheet to save your data, close the Update Periods modal and return to the worksheet.
  • Select Line Setup link to save your data and return to the Line Setup modal where you can edit any of the values, as needed.
