Fees are payments that students owe, usually assigned based on Courses or Programs. Educational Institutions usually have to set up some pre-defined Fee structures. RIO University will also have to set up its Fee structure properly, e.g. you will have Fees for Band 1 to Band 3 Courses, Band 1 to Band 3 Programs, fees for First Aid Certificate, fees for Corporate Program, etc.
There are also online variants of the Band 1 to Band 3 Course/Program Fees, and those online variants will be grouped under the non-online Fees.
Fill in the data as below:
|Name||The fee structure.|
|Description||Description of the fee. Can list out the intended Program/Course the fees are for.|

|Fee Unit||[ EFTSL / Course / Program / Year / Term / Credit ]

|Loan Fee %||Interest charge percentage by the Educational Institution if student chooses to pay the fee with a government loan.|

Inside Fees, there is another Fee Schedule. The purpose of Fee Schedule is to keep the Fee amounts for a Course or Program up to date.
For example, if Course A is priced at $1,000 for 2020, and at $1,250 for 2021, Fee Schedule will indicate $1,000 amount of Fee to be paid, and when 2021 comes around it will update the amount to $1,250. The historical $1,000 fee would still be visible in the related Fee Schedule.
E.g.: RIO University has set the Band 1 - 3 Course Domestic Fee for 2021 to be $343.75, and to increase to $353.75 in 2022.
Similarly, the Band 1 - 3 Program Domestic Fee for 2021 is at $11,000, and is set to increase to $11,500 in 2022.

Upsert Fee Schedules with blank Status first, then upsert Fee Schedule Terms, and finally upsert Fee Schedules again but this time, with Status = Approved.
Fee Schedule Term
Fee Schedule is linked to Term. Fee Schedule Term allows the backend automation to identify the correct Term for Fee Schedule. For example, RIO University's Band 1 Course 2021 is offered in Semester 1 2021. When specified in Fee Schedule Term, the correct Fee for that Semester will be found through this.
