True. In Virginia, bachelor's level credits never expire (it seems)...but
graduate level credits do. So in VA, you wouldn't have to retake
successfully completed courses.

On topic: I agree that you should try to fill in coursework completed.
That's how I handle my Master's level work: I use the term "M.A.
coursework in English" on my resume. On application forms, in the block
"Graduated? Yes/No" I of course answer "No." You can also add an expected
graduation date...maybe you'll be going back to school if you get the job
you're applying to, right?
