AACOMAS Transcript Entry Review -- Repeated Courses for Fun, Not For Grades?

    Hi all, apologies if this has been covered elsewhere, but I couldn't find it by searching.

    I'm going through AACOMAS Transcript Review, and I have a question regarding repeated courses. During undergrad, I took several courses a few times over either because I enjoyed them, or because they were yearly activities (ie: concert music ensemble that plays every spring). I got credit for them each time I took them, and for the most part my letter grade was the same on each attempt.

    Do I need to mark these as repeated coursework? I feel like I should, but I don't know that this is the intended purpose of the categorization.

    Thanks and good luck to everyone applying this cycle!

      Yes, the transcript on AACOMAS must match your official transcripts 100%
      Thanks for the reply! I understand that. I entered all of the courses exactly as they appear, but I had to enter the same course multiple times for multiple different semesters. I actually found the answer I was looking for:

      "Note: Withdrawn courses and courses taken multiple times for new credit (such as physical education courses) are not considered repeated." -- per the AACOMAS Repeated Coursework entry page. I'm figuring my situation applies to courses taken multiple times for new credit.
