For foreign students and students who have requested not to use their Social Security number, this number is assigned by Penn.
Term_Earned_Credit The credit the student earns for courses applied to any career in a given term. Credits for courses not applying to any career are not included in this sum. The total can be no higher than the TERM_REGISTERED_CREDIT. A credit is earned when a student receives passing grade for a course. A passing grade discludes failures (F), withdrawals (W) and all incompletes (I).

NOTE: This field is always null in the STDTTERM tables.

NOTE: All fields in CEN_STDT_STUDENT_TERM are static; they are updated by term and there is only record per student per term.

Term_Gpa Grade Point Average for this student in the term indicated. It may range from 0-4.0 and is calculated by dividing TERM_GRADE_POINTS by the TERM_QUALITY_CREDIT attempted. (The grade point is the sum of the numeric values assigned to each letter grade included in the grade point average.) This field only calculates this average using grades from the current term s data.
NOTE: All fields in CEN_STDT_STUDENT_TERM are static; they are updated by term and there is only record per student per term.
Term_Grade_Points The sum of the SCE grade point values for the given term, but only includes credit for courses applying to any career and excludes credit for courses not applying to any career.

NOTE: This field is always null in the STDTTERM tables.

NOTE: All fields in CEN_STDT_STUDENT_TERM are static in that they are updated by term and there is only record per student per term.

Term_Quality_Credit This number is the denominator used in the calculation of the grade point average and is the earned credits included in the grade point average. If a student passes a course taken pass/fail, earned credits increase, but quality credits remain the same. If a student fails a course taken pass/fail, earned credits remain the same, but quality credits increase.

NOTE: This field is always null in the STDTTERM tables.

NOTE: All fields in CEN_STDT_STUDENT_TERM are static in that they are updated by term and there is only record per student per term.

Term_Registered_Credit

Total credits for all courses in which a student is enrolled for the indicated term. Registered credits are used to compute academic statistics. Depending on the grade type carried by the course, registered credits will or will not count toward TERM_EARNED_CREDIT (credits applying towards a student s degree program), TERM_QUALITY_CREDIT (credits used to calculate a grade point average), credits used to calculate a student's full-/part- time status, or credits used to calculate a student's load limit for a term. This field is generated by the system by calculating the sum of SCE-Registered Credit and includes credits for all courses, regardless of which career the course is applied to, even if the credits apply to no career. NOTE: All fields in CEN_STDT_STUDENT_TERM are static in that they are updated by term and there is only record per student per term.

Term

Time_Status For an indicated term, this field indicates whether the student is enrolled full- or part-time. A part-time status usually indicates three (3) or less credits per term (there are exceptions). This status can change by term and has a direct bearing on the tuition and benefits of a student. The time status can also be overriden by the student's division office. NOTE: All fields in CEN_STDT_STUDENT_TERM are static in that they are updated by term and there is only record per student per term.

Values:

[Null]     Not calculated
N          Student has zero enrolled hours
