- Changing the name of the Educational Fee to “Tuition”
- Changing the name of Fees for Selected Professional School Students to “Professional Degree Supplemental Tuition”
- Changing the name of Nonresident Tuition to “Nonresident Supplemental Tuition”
Principal Investigators should note that these changes will impact proposals to sponsors that have been willing to pay the above charges as “fees” but currently disallow “tuition” charges. This means that PIs will no longer be able to budget for fees if in fact these charges are now more appropriately termed tuition.
How sponsors will react to the change in classification of such charges under existing awards is not yet known. SPO will provide additional information on this as it becomes available.
