On PeopleSoft and elsewhere, a particular semester is often referred to numerically with a four-digit code. Here is the method to derive that code:

  • First digit: Millennium
    • 0 for 1000's (e.g., 1998)
    • 1 for 2000's (e.g., 2006)
  • Second and third digits: Year (e.g., 06 for 2006)
  • Fourth digit: Semester
    • 1 for January Intersession
    • 3 for Spring
    • 5 for Summer
    • 8 for Fall

For example, the code for fall semester 2005 is: 1058.
