The ADS academic year rollover is a phrase used to describe the ADS system rolling over from one academic year to the following academic year. For example, the transition from 2019-2020 to 2020-2021. The academic year runs from July 1 through June 30 in ADS. Users will see an announcement posted on the ADS login page that specifies the date of the rollover.
When the rollover occurs, data in ADS that was collected for the current academic year is archived and the screens in ADS will reflect the new academic year and all residents/fellows are given an "unconfirmed" status.
In cases where data is collected for a given academic year, new data entry will be required when the annual update is scheduled. In other cases like narrative questions, answers will be rolled over for review during the annual update.
