Financial Aid Even and Odd Year Designator

Many 3C Financial Aid processes are required to differentiate communications over two aid years.  Therefore in some of the naming formats below there is a need to designate Even Years vs Odd Years.  

When a one character code is required for that designation E = Even Year and F = Odd Year.

Even vs Odd will be determined based on the ending year that is identified as the aid year.

Examples:  

Aid Year 2016-2017 is an Odd year.

Aid Year 2017-2018 is an Even year.
