LionPATH Terms

The LionPATH Term is a 4-digit code that represents a specific semester.

Each term is represented by a 4-digit code [e.g., 2168. The first digit (2) is the millennium (2000s), the second two digits (16) are the year (2016), and the last digit (8) represents the month of the year (the eigth month is August, the beginning of the fall term]. The first digit will always (in our lifetimes) be 2; the last digit will be 1 (spring), 5 (summer) or 8 (fall). Usually, the term is written in words as well.
