PENNcard system. No two persons have the same Penn_ID. Only persons
affiliated with the University will be assigned a Penn_ID.
A number from 1 to 2 that distinguishes one academic program from another.
For example: a Dual Degree student can pursue a Bachelor of Science in
Engineering from the Engineering School and a Bachelor of Science from
the Wharton School The numbers 1 and 2 would distinguish one academic
program from another. A student pursuing only one degree would have a
Program_Order of 1.
When a student is pursuing two degrees at the same time, the schools
where each degree is being pursued are both administratively responsible
for the student. Each school makes sure the student meets the related
requirements and they coordinate on matters of leaves and graduation.

identification number. A Social Security number is a unique number assigned
to an individual by the federal Social Security Administration. This is
a 9-digit numeric character without dashes, for example, 777777777. For
foreign students and students who have requested not to use their Social
Security number, this number is assigned by Penn.
||The term in which information about this student's major, minor, and/or
concentration, in this academic program, applies.
Penn divides the academic year into 3 terms: Fall, Spring, and Summer.
Terms are designated by the 4-digit calendar year, followed by a term
code. The Spring term code is A, the Summer term code is B, and the Fall
term code is C. For example: 1995C means Fall 1995, 1996A means Spring
1995, and 1996B means Summer 1996.
