Recommendations for Housing COA Configurations
In working with the Student Financial Planning Student Advisory Group (SAG) which is made up of students from SFP customer institutions, it was brought to the SFP product team’s attention that sometimes the fund acceptance workflow amounts seem inaccurate or confusing. Upon investigation it was discovered that this could be caused by configuration.
The SFP Product has two categorizations for COA configurations, found in the COA.csv workbook under the column “COA_Component_Cost_Type”:
- STANDARD: Direct Costs, Billed by and Paid Directly to the University (such as on campus housing or “dorms”, which in most cases would be billed by and paid directly to the university)
