The second attempt shows up further down the transcript. R Final Attempt – will indicate the last time a course was taken for credit if the course was repeated. A Bankruptcy – any courses appearing on the transcript that are not being used to compute GPA or used for graduation credit due to academic bankruptcy. Course never disappear even if they don’t “count.” M Multiple credit – some courses may be taken more than one time for credit. These courses appear twice or more and all appearances count toward the total number of credits earned. *Semester Identification: Spring 2011 is written on the transcript as SPRING 2010-11 because it is the second half of the 2010/2011 academic year. An academic year begins in the Fall and ends in the Summer of the following calendar year. The numerical designation (20112) that follows is short-hand for advisors and the Registrar and everyone involved in the registration process. The 2011 part refers to the calendar year in which the Spring semester ends. That would mean that Fall of 2010 would appear in parentheses as (20111)– the first semester of the academic year that ends in the Spring of 2011. This is important because the semester in which you COMPLETED a class or in which you PLAN to complete a class may appear on your curriculum advising worksheet in this form. Finally, the actual begin- and end-dates for that particular semester appear so that it’s clear exactly which calendar dates are included in this portion of the transcript. **The next brief element of the semester portion of the transcript indicates the academic program in which you are enrolled including the BA (Bachelor of Arts, BS (Bachelor of Science), or any of the other types of degree programs offered by LSUS. Pages 10-11 of the current catalog have the complete list. The sample transcript shows a fictional BA program in Anthropology with a concentration in Basket Weaving. The concentration area is always in parentheses.
