Why do some students' class year codes not coincide with their expected graduation dates?

Class Year Codes (FY, SO, JR, SR) in Banner are based solely on the number of credits a student has completed. This code is automatically calculated each time a student's academic history changes, and cannot be manually changed. There are certain times of the year when class codes are likely to change - at the end of each term (fall, spring, summer) when we roll students' grades to academic history. However, it's possible that a student's class year would change when we post transfer credit to their record (which happens continually throughout the year).

Expected Graduation Dates in Banner are initially entered when a student's record is created in Banner. Because the academic calendar is not finalized 4 years in advance, we default a date of May 1 with the appropriate year for incoming students - ex. this year we used 05/01/2010.  As soon as the calendar is finalized we will correct the expected grad date in batch. We will review all students' expected grad dates annually at the end of the spring semester (as we do now) and manually update them as needed, then send a comprehensive status report.

A student's class year code may not always coincide with his/her expected graduation date. For example, a student entering Fall 2006 who gets college credit for 8 Advanced Placement exams, may have a class year code of SO and an expected grad date of 05/01/2010 because he/she will plans to stay at Dickinson for 4 years. Another contrary example, a student who studied abroad during the 2005-2006 academic year, may still have a JR code at the end of spring because his/her credits haven't transferred yet, but his/her grad date is 05/20/2007.
