Terms labeled consecutively (1, 2, 3, 4) was deemed to make too much sense, so in 2013 (now called 213) they will be numbered 1, 3, 5 and 8. 

Update: RIT is planning to have fast courses offered during breaks, hence the missing numbers 2, 4, 6, and 7 although it is unclear which breaks those correspond to.
