When packaging students for remaining Pell1 eligibility in the (trailing) summer term, using the same item type as the student was awarded for the academic terms, the spring Pell amount is being increased by $1 in certain cases, due to the way the item type is now being rounded between three terms, instead of two terms.

Expectation was that it would leave the previously awarded spring term alone, and give whatever balance was remaining in the summer.

The issue can be reproduced at will with the following steps:
1. Typically, the summer term would not be built yet on FA Term, but if it already exists you can set the fa load to 'N' for testing purposes.
2. Award Pell1 in 3 term disbursement plan - fall/spring/summer. Based on the previous step, only fall and spring should be awarded.
3. Re-run FA Term Build to build summer - or reset FA Load appropriately if already built
4. Repackage Pell for the student, now incorporating the summer term
5. Verify term amounts within Disbursement link on Assign Awards to Students or View Mass Repackaging Details

The issue does not occur in every case, but only certain specific cases dependent on the student's particular efc and load combinations between terms.


 It is not clear at this time if this functionality changed with any of the Year Round Pell patches.
