On Question 8, the Calculated F&A Base and Rate are based on the sponsor and activity type.
Users can turn off the automatic tuition remission and manually calculate it, if desired.
To do manual tuition remission, remove the checkbox from the Automatic Tuition Remission box.
If the sponsor has a published policy AND is Nonprofit or Federal, input the limited rate and base in Question 4. For charitable grant proposals (with ASUF as the direct sponsor), if the prime/originating sponsor does not have a published rate*, input the standard charitable rate of 11% in Question 4.
Make sure to always input a base of Total Direct Costs (TDC) for charitable grants through ASUF.
Note – if you are cost sharing an RA/TA then you must use Academic and Summer months in order to calculate the cost share tuition remission correctly.
You will receive an error message if you try to use calendar months.
If a budget period needs to end before or after the calculated end date, use the override end date to manually change the end date.
The override end date must be within 30 days of the calculated end date.
Project periods default to 12 months (9 academic and 3 summer).
