    ALI,

    You only need to mark the course as a "repeat" if you have previously received a grade for that same course. To clarify, a repeat is for a course that you have previously failed, or received any letter grade in. If the "W" is not included in your GPA, then you did not receive a grade, and do not need to mark it as a repeat. In your situation, you would not need to mark the class as "repeated".

    According to the instruction, it states that a Repeated course is one that you have taken more than once, REGARDLESS of the REASON. Thus, even if you didn't receive credit for the W, you would still need to report it as a REPEATED. Hope this helps!

    Btw, does anyone know how to enter the "999999" for high school AP courses? and also, can we include all the AP classes that we took in high school even if we didn't take the AP test and receive college credit for?

    Thanks!

    Sef
