68 Certifying Modular Programs Question #1 Should you report tuition and fees per the students billing cycle or can schools report tuition and fees to maximize tuition payout? Answer: Schools should report tuition and fees based on the submission of each term or modular program.

69 Certifying Modular Programs Scenerio: A student is pursuing a certificate program which cost $20,000 and the program is broken into 5-week terms. The school is actually billing the student $20,000 on the first term. Question #2: Should the school report $20,000 on the first term or, divide the total cost of the program by the total number of terms and report the amount from the calculation on each term certified (or whatever formula they use)?

70 Certifying Modular Programs Answer #2: The school should not report $20,000 on just the first term for the entire program. The school should break-up the tuition and fees and apply them to each modular term.
