A term is a label and a date range used to define an institution's semesters, trimesters, summer sessions, and so on. A term defines a given time frame that can then be associated with Programs, Courses, Educational Experiences, Sections, and so on. Terms are used for filtering purposes and can classify entities as past, current, or future.

Terms are created from the Administrator Panel in the Courses section. Terms can be added, modified, and removed.
