No, No, and No. Your PE courses will appear in your “PE History” in Banner, not in your academic schedule. The only PE-related information that will appear on your transcript is a note indicating that you fulfilled the PE graduation requirement. To check your PE History/schedule in Banner, log into MyWellesley, then click: Self Service > PE Menu > PE History.
