There were thirteen who served for two full terms, namely

1. George Washington

2. Thomas Jefferson

3. James Madison

4. James Monroe

5. Andrew Jackson

6. Ulysses S. Grant

7. Grover Cleveland == his two terms were not consecutive

8. Woodrow Wilson

9. Franklin D. Roosevelt (served 3 full terms and died early in his 4th term).

10. Dwight Eisenhower

11. Ronald Reagan

12. Bill Clinton

13. George W. Bush.

14. Barack Obama ( still serving his second term)

Note: all of the above except Cleveland served their terms consecutively. Cleveland was the only President to leave office and then return later..

There were three other presidents who were elected to two terms, but they did not complete the second term:

1. Abraham Lincoln (assassinated at the beginning of his second term).

2. William McKinley (assassinated at the beginning of his second term).

3. Richard Nixon (resigned during his second term).

There were also four presidents who were elected to a second term, but they hadn't been elected to the first (they didn't serve a full first term).

1. Theodore Roosevelt (completed McKinley's second term and was elected to one term of his own).

2. Calvin Coolidge (completed Warren Harding's term and was elected to one term of his own).

3. Harry Truman (completed FDR's fourth term and was elected to one term of his own).

4. Lyndon B. Johnson (completed Kennedy's term and was elected to one term of his own).

There are only 16. Teddy Roosevelt, Calvin Coolidge, Harry Truman, and LBJ don't count as they were only elected once after serving the remainder of their deceased predecessors.

16 Presidents were actually elected to two terms. Another four finished out the terms of other Presidents and then as the incumbent were elected to another term of their own.

The 16 were Washington, Jefferson, Madison, Monroe, Jackson, Lincoln, Grant, Cleveland,McKinley, Wilson, franklin Rooseveltm Eisenhower, Nixon, Reagan, Clinton and George W. Bush.

Theodore Roosevelt, Coolidge, Lyndon Johnson and Truman all finished out the terms of other Presidents, and then were re- elected .

(One president (Franklin Roosevelt) was elected to a 3rd and 4th term but shortly died after being elected to that 4th term. Three presidents that were elected to a second term did not finish the 2nd term (Lincoln and McKinley were assassinated and Nixon resigned from office))

How many years is in one term how many terms did George Washington serve?

United States presidents are elected to terms that last 4 years. George Washington served 2 terms (8 years) setting the precedent for all subsequent presidents until FDR - who was elected to 4 terms but died during his 4th. Shortly thereafter, the Constitution was amended to limit all future presidents to a maximum of 2 terms unless they were first elected vice president and then assumed office when the president they are serving under leaves office with less than half his term remaining. In that case then can finish the unexpired term and then serve two additional full terms for a total of just less than 10 years maximum. No president since FDR has served more than 8 years.
