Question about Coursework Input

Sat Sep 11, 2010 12:56 am

So I feel the details and directions about entering withdrawn classes is a little hazy. I have a couple questions I was hoping someone could answer for me.

1. The first time I took Organic Chemistry II, I had to withdraw and recieved a W on my transcript. The next time I took the course I recieved an A. Should these be recorded as retakes (W= R01 and A=L01), or is it not considered a retake because it was a withdraw?

2. Similarly, I had a course where I recieved a C the first time,W the second time, and A the last time taken. Should this be recorded as (C= R02, W= R02, A= L02), or should the withdraw not be considered in the retake scheme?

This may be a no-brainer, but I can not find any concrete clarification on the matter. Thanks in advance for any advice or answers, and good luck to everyone in their endeavors.
