eduTrac SIS is a term based system, but there are some schools who are semester based, and have to run reports based on a semester. So, semester exists for this purpose only and terms are connected to semesters. It doesn’t matter how you setup your semesters as long as you stay within the following guidelines when setting up your semester codes.
The semester code should fall within the following format:
The format should be two characters (16, 17, 18, etc.) followed by a forward slash (/) followed by two or more characters (FA, SP, etc). The first two characters designate the year, while the later characters designate the semester.
So, if you wanted to create a fall semester for 2016, then your semester code should look like this: 16/FA.
