Term and Year Identifier

The Office of Student Records and Registration uses a 4-digit code to indicate the term and year for each semester and summer session.

The numbers representing the semesters and terms are as follows:

The first number is a place holder. For the years 2000 and after it is a "1".
All of the terms within the 1990's will begin with a "0".

The middle two numbers indicate the last two digits of the year. If the year is 2014, the middle two digits will be "14".

The last number indicates the month the term begins.  1 = Spring (January); 5 = Summer (May); 8 = Fall (August).

Examples of Term and Year Identifiers are as follows:

The Fall Semester of the 2014-2015 school year is represented as 1148.
The Spring Semester of the 2014-2015 school year is represented as 1151.
