Creating a term

To create a term, you should use the script

/usr/local/submitty/sbin/create_term.sh

Follow these usage guidelines:

Usage: create_term.sh  [-a|--amend] <term>  '<name of term>'  <start date>  <end date>

The term should be an abbreviated semester name like:

s24

While name of term would be a more descriptive name like “Spring 2024”.

The start and end date must be formatted in mm/dd/yyyy format.

Use -a or –amend to amend an existing term. An example valid usage of this command would be:

create_term.sh s24 'Spring 2024' 01/09/2024 05/01/2024
