It's not a question, but I'll answer it anyway.

The time an elected official stays in office is determined by the term length of the office, which varies from one government to another, the number of times the person is elected, and if/when the person is forced out of office, due to death, term limit if any, etc., or resigns.

A person cannot be elected U. S. President more than twice, and a person who has served at least two years of a presidential term to which he/she was not elected cannot be elected President more than once.

The word is term. If you are talking about how long he is allowed to stay in office, that would be a term limit.

What U.S. Presidents have served two separate terms?

Washington, Jefferson, Madison, Monroe, Jackson, Grant, Cleveland, Wilson, Eisenhower, Reagan and Clinton have served two complete terms, as will GW Bush if he stays in office another year. In addition, FD Roosevelt served three terms and part of a fourth. Lincoln, McKinley and Nixon were elected to second terms but failed to complete them due to death or resignation. T Roosevelt and Truman each served the greater part of a term (after succeeding through death) and were then reelected to a full term in their own right. Coolidge and L B Johnson similarly won elected terms after serving the last year or so of another man's term.
