Planned: requirement includes work student put in a personal academic plan but hasn’t necessarily registered for. Only appears when student is working with a personal academic plan.

E – Classes that are excluded in GPA, do not count for credit, and have been repeated. * - Classes that are included in GPA, do not count for credit, and have been repeated.
