When awarding Pell1 in separate item types by term - instead of a single item type spanning all terms - the total amount awarded is $1 too much in at least one scenario.

The specific example verified is in aid year 2021 with a 0 efc, max COA student with load 'T' (3/4 time) in both the fall and spring terms. In this situation, the second item type, awarded for the spring, is $1 too much (see steps below). 

However, not all odd-numbered yearly Pell amounts are affected by this issue. For instance, if the same example student is changed to 'F' load in both terms, the second (spring) Pell item type packages correctly, $1 less than the first (fall) Pell item type. Exactly which odd-numbered Pell cells are affected by this problem and which are not - and whether the issue is specific to aid year 2021 etc - are details which are as yet undetermined. 

The issue will be replicated at will with the following steps:

  1. Identify 0 efc student in aid year 2021.
  2. Set fall and spring fa load to 'T'.
  3. Assign one Pell1 item type for fall term only. Amount is assigned as 2380 which is correct.
  4. Assign second Pell1 item type for spring term only. Amount is assigned as 2380 which is incorrect. Should be 2379.
