A Term is a numeric data element within SIS that refers to a specific semester. There is a Fall, a Spring, and a Summer semester for all students. An explanation of the format is described in the following table.

Character Represents Values
1st The century of the term
0 = 20th century
1 = 21st century
2nd and 3rd academic year
(e.g. 2017-2018)
99 = 1998 – 1999
18 = 2017 - 2018
4th the actual term
 2 = Fall   
4 = Spring
6 = Summer

Within SIS, Term/Session Dates can be found by following the menu path:

> Records and Enrollment > Dates and Deadlines > Session Dates and Deadlines

The Bursar's website mostly contains information on financial questions but also has a listing of semester terms by calendar year (2001 to 2050).
