Term Code

Each Quarter at CSULA is defined by a term number.  Below is an explanation of how each term number or "Term Code" is derived.







Century Year Quarter

A term code is a four digit number that begins with the century (i.e. 2 represents 2000-2099).  The next two digits represent the two digit year (i.e. 08 for 2008) and the last digit indicates the quarter; 1=Winter, 3=Spring, 6=Summer, 9=Fall.  So based on this system, Spring Quarter 2008 would have a term code 2083.

Fall 2008 2089
