Terms:

A “term” is the semester in which a student is enrolled. For example, if a student is enrolled in a fall 2016 semester course, the term is 201714. If a student enrolled in fall 2016 for a year long course, the term is 201713. For spring 2017, the term is 201724. Students will be invoiced separately for each term in which they are enrolled.

If you are making a payment through GoldLink, please be sure your payment is in the correct term.
