What does the Accounting School Year field indicate on a Program Registration Config record?

The Accounting School Year field of a program registration config record is the school year designation that will end up on the resulting charge items in Accounting (VCA). If this field is left as “Auto” then the system defaults to creating the charge items for the school year that is shown on the most recent school year of the class that is related to the program registration.

If the Program Registration is for a summer course, and the Accounting School Year is “Auto”, the system creates the charge items with the school year designation of the following school year.

For example: if the course is for Summer of 2021, the resulting charge items in VCA will then show the school year of 21-22.
