Academic Year Reporting Terms

Catalog terms are identified by the year first (remove the second number from the year), followed by a one digit academic term:

  • Winterim = 2
  • Spring = 4
  • Summer = 6
  • Fall = 8

For example, during the academic year 2017-2018, the following codes are used to represent each term: 

  • Fall 2017 = 2178
  • Winterim 2018 = 2182
  • Spring 2018 = 2184
  • Summer 2018 = 2186
