STUDENT-CENTRIC PERIOD

The student-centric period (SCP) is defined as an academic semester consisting of any two consecutive sessions that begins when a student starts courses and that ends when time requirements for a semester have been fulfilled.

Two overlapping calendar cycles designate months corresponding to the University's summer, fall and spring semesters. At the time a student initially starts courses, he/she is assigned an SCP designator code of Cycle 1 or Cycle 2. The chart below outlines how months of the year correspond to a student's spring, summer and fall semesters, based on the assigned SCP cycle.
